IFA Recognizes Uralkali as an Industry Stewardship Champion

10.12.2020

Uralkali has been recognized as an Industry Stewardship Champion by the International Fertilizer Association (IFA), for the Company’s outstanding achievements in product stewardship. This year’s Champions were announced by the IFA’s Board of Directors during the Association’s annual strategic forum, which took place online.

Industry Stewardship Champions label is attributed to fertilizer companies that have participated in all of the IFA’s most recent Safety Performance, Environmental Performance, and Energy Efficiency & CO2 Emissions benchmarks, and which are certified under IFA Protect & Sustain, the de-facto product stewardship standard for fertilizer companies, covering international certifications (ISO, OHSAS, Responsible Care).

Vitaly Lauk, Uralkali CEO, commented:

Receiving this prestigious award from the IFA is yet further recognition of Uralkali’s commitment to sustainable development and our responsible approach to the entire production process. In 2019, Uralkali invested more than RUB 4.8 billion into environmental protection.

Volker Andresen, Director, Technical & Safety-Health-Environment Committee, commented:

The global fertilizer industry is getting safer, healthier, and environmental friendlier every day. IFA is proud to count on Uralkali as one of the sustainability change leaders. Thanks to significant measurable progress, this Russian company reached our Industry Stewardship Champions category in 2020.
