Yara is the world leader in the production and distribution of mineral fertilizer. This fosters a global outlook and commitment. Our approach is to create value for all stakeholders, including society at large – creating impact.

We believe viable profitability, inclusive growth and safeguarding the environment are business imperatives for future competitiveness. Private business is vital for sustainable development – as sustainability is imperative for businesses to remain viable.

Yara’s main impact is found in the nexus of food – resources – environment. At the heart of our engagement lies sustainable agricultural development: Improving food security while reducing emissions and environmental impact, and at all times addressing rural development.

Yara pursues the issues of sustainable farming and the interconnectivity of food, climate, resource efficiency and environmental concerns in our core business, through innovation and R&D, in the global arena and in our partnerships.
