Environmental performance 2012

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.

Yara launched the world’s first carbon footprint certificates for mineral fertilizers in 2010, helping farmers to minimize their GHG emissions. Using our proven low-carbon fertilizers and best practice application tools, the carbon footprint from crop production can be halved or more while maintaining yields. Yara is guaranteeing that the GHG emissions are below 3.6 kg CO2-equivalents per kilogram nitrogen sold. Please see the Carbon Footprint Guarantee for more information.
