Our 2030 commitment

Leverage our farm-focused technology partnerships and investments to drive positive impact in industry and grower innovation and inclusion, by 2030.

Our 2023 progress

We participated in the Radicle Growth Inclusion Challenge and selected two ag-tech entrepreneur companies for potential investment. The challenge was a pitch competition from ag-tech entrepreneurs around the globe who are committed to diversity and inclusion while advancing a sustainable food value chain.

Our approach

Nutrien participated in the Radicle Growth Inclusion Challenge to help surface ag-tech entrepreneurs committed to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).

In 2023, over 190 entrepreneurs from 40 countries entered, and the top four finalists presented their ideas and business goals to a panel of industry experts. This landmark initiative provided insights on the state of inclusion and diversity in ag-tech and helps address the imbalance in access to capital investment, networks and knowledge experienced by women and BIPOC entrepreneurs within the ag-tech industry.
