PhosAgro is a champion for global food security. We offer high-quality
nutrients that are friendly for the environment, as well as services for their
delivery and assistance in using them in the most effective way.
Caring for the Earth to Make Lives Prosperous
Serving Global Markets
The superior quality and safety of our phosphate-based fertilizers benefits crops and soil
wherever they are used. Our goal is to globally distribute our nutrients and promote a message
of sustainability in every market we serve.
We currently are expanding our production to enable PhosAgro to significantly
increase the output of fertilizers and feed phosphates that are safe for the environment. As we do so,
we will emphasize the United Nations sustainable development program of 17 Global
Goals that should "transform the world" and help all countries achieve balance in economic,
social and environmental activities.
Being one of the world industry leaders, the PhosAgro Group is actively involved in international
projects that support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Here
is a partial list of international projects we lead or support.
We contribute to the industry by working closely with the International
Fertilizer Association (IFA). IFA is the world’s largest organization that brings
together manufacturers, traders, fertilizer distributors, as well as industry service
providers and researchers.
As part of fostering environmental education, PhosAgro cooperates with the Safer Phosphates™ media campaign. The
mission of Safer Phosphates is to share knowledge — through the
website and social media — and address concerns about heavy metals that are present
in some phosphate-based fertilizers.
We are jointly implementing a project with the United Nations Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO), the UN body that leads and coordinates international efforts to combat
hunger. The main goal of the organization is to provide the population with
access to quality food.
We participate in the FAO Global Soil Partnership. This is a platform for
the discussion of current issues of soil management, including the reduction of soil
pollution and exchange of best practices for the use of fertilizers.
The Sustainable Soil Management Project creates regional soil laboratories and integrates them
into national networks in Latin America, Asia and Africa, as well as in the
Middle East. PhosAgro plays a key role in it, creating a single mechanism for
advancing technology and expertise about proper land use.
The Green Chemistry for Life grant program was launched by UNESCO and PhosAgro in collaboration
with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The project supports young
scientists involved in the development of innovative technologies in accordance
with the principles of green chemistry, which will help solve environmental problems,
improve energy efficiency and better manage natural resources.
2019 was declared by the UN as the International Year of the Periodic Table,
which was created by Russian scientist Dmitry Mendeleev 150 years ago. PhosAgro is a key
partner in this initiative.
These are just a few of the initiatives we support internationally, and the
comprehensive list can be found at our global website.
