The global population is expected to climb to 9.7 billion by 2050. In order to provide food and clothing for such a vast population with increasingly fewer resources, creating sustainability in agriculture is of utmost importance and should already be a top priority worldwide.
In line with this, Fertilizer Canada is pleased to announce the first ever 4R Nutrient Stewardship Sustainability Report – a document that outlines our journey to date and continued commitment to driving sustainability for agriculture. This document is a comprehensive overview of the work Fertilizer Canada does every day to ensure Canadian growers, and growers across the globe, adopt sustainable farming practices. This behind-the-scenes work is a key part of ensuring 9.7 billion people have safe and sustainably produced agri-products – like food and clothing – for the future.
With the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Sustainability Report, Fertilizer Canada tracks recent 2016 milestones through several initiatives against an initial list of key performance indicators measuring the environmental, economic and social impact of our activities as they pertain to agriculture sustainability. This is an essential step in setting and reaching sustainability targets as demand for agri-products continues to increase.
