Inclusive agriculture means we can deliver a future where every grower has the capital needed to grow. It is important that grower financing encompasses a more holistic view of balancing social, economic and environmental outcomes.
Our 2030 Commitment
Create new grower financial solutions to strengthen social, economic and environmental outcomes in agriculture.
Transformative and inclusive financing can help growers overcome barriers. Potential barriers include access to capital, technology and services, among others. Challenges can be multi-faceted and complex and new levers and opportunities are required to accelerate change. Initial steps towards measuring and assessing impact include implementing ways to track and measure diversity data for our grower customers.
Nutrien Financial provides financing for our grower customers. From seed to fertilizer to crop protection, we can help finance a grower’s seasonal investment in their operations.
Nutrien intends to develop and offer new programs and services to help growers who may have been impacted by historical inequities and disparities in agriculture. Nutrien is committed to inclusive financing and helping diverse growers access working capital needed to purchase our goods and services. In addition to lending, growers are supported with other services from our trusted advisors and field agronomists who help with planning and decision making for each critical growing season.
Financing is also often a key enabler to broad adoption of sustainable agricultural practices including climate-smart agricultural practices. While many growers are adopting sustainable agricultural systems and practices, there is an opportunity for us to help support even more sustainable acres to increase soil carbon sequestration, productivity, profitability and resiliency through inclusive financing.
