We are committed to working towards solving global challenges.
We are committed to working towards global food security. Through various programs, we work with our customers around the world to maximize yields, strengthen crops, and accelerate growth to meet the world’s rising food demands. We also work to ensure our products are used in a way which safeguards health, occupational and public safety, the environment, and ensures security.
Sustainable agriculture through nutrient stewardship
OCI’s fertilizer products help achieve sustainable agriculture by providing an effective and environmentally sound source of nitrogen, the key nutrient required for crop growth and development. By using nitrogen fertilizers, farmers can:
- grow more food on their land,
- reduce soil nutrient loss and improve soil quality, and
- reduce the need for new farmland to be sequestered, which therefore reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by limiting deforestation.
While nitrogen fertilizers offer a sustainable means of maximizing yields, farmer education is essential to ensure nitrogen fertilizer application is optimized for both production and environmental protection. OCI works with farmers around the world through various initiatives to achieve this goal.
Developing more effective fertilizers
We have dedicated resources to develop reliable fertilizers with superior spreading and fertigation properties. Our products are environmentally friendly and provide optimal crop nutrition due to their quality, resulting in lower nitrogen loss and increased crop yields.
Our fertilizers are produced to meet the highest physical quality standards to ensure optimal spreading efficiency, which in turn:
- minimizes yield losses,
- minimizes soil nutrient loss,
- minimizes other impacts on the environment such as water run-off due to optimal fertilizer application
UN Sustainable Development Goals
We endeavour to continually improve our performance as part of our commitment to sustainability. In addition to our internal targets, we aim to continue to make meaningful contributions to achieving global targets, such as those set by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We believe our activities contribute to achieving the following goals:
