Products & Services
As a global chemicals company that develops, manufactures and distributes nitrogen-based commercial explosives and fertilisers as well as associated products and services, we recognise that building environmental and social considerations, as well as economic ones, into our value chain will deliver large sustainability benefits to our business and our stakeholders. It will also ensure that we can continue to create long term economic value while protecting our people, our communities and our environment.
Our sustainability agenda focuses our efforts on improving the environmental and social aspects of the manufacture and use of our products and working with our customers and suppliers to improve the life cycle sustainability of our products. This recognises the fact that the greatest impact we can have is in creating products with improved sustainability outcomes and in helping our customers select and use our products to minimise environmental and social impacts.
Our sustainability focus is on ensuring that the health, safety and environmental impact of products, product packaging and services are considered and managed responsibly and ethically throughout the product life cycle, with a particular emphasis on the effective use of fertilisers.
Our efforts to mitigate the environmental impacts of our fertiliser products include:
- Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions, water use and waste associated with the manufacturing and transport of our fertilisers.
- Developing and promoting enhanced efficiency fertilisers, for example Green Urea NV and ENTEC.
- Maintaining product quality, including monitoring impurities that could impact soil health.
- Adopting the Fertcare principles and code of practice promoted by the Fertilizer Industry Federation of Australia (FIFA).
