Yara and sustainability

Environmental performance 2011

In response to climate change, Yara continues to reduce its carbon footprint.
environmental performance

The company’s total GHG emissions are now reduced by more than 45% compared to 2004, adjusting for plants acquired and closed since that time, reaching the 2013 target ahead of time. Most of Yara’s nitric acid plants are covered by the EU ETS (Emission Trading System) or by the UN Joint Implementation Mechanism.

In 2010, Yara became the first fertilizer company to launch a campaign focusing on the carbon footprint of its products. The campaign, which has been focused on the Nordic region, supports the need of the Swedish food industry to meet local requirements for climate branding of food products.
