How we work

As a global company, Yara is exposed to different cultures, traditions, labor conditions, and threats. We are dedicated to responsible business conduct throughout our own operations and value chain. This means promoting accountability by maintaining proper policies and practices, having zero tolerance for fraud and corruption, upholding a culture of respect, honesty, and fairness, and contributing to transparency. Responsible business conduct is crucial in earning the trust of our stakeholders and key to our success.

The regulatory landscape is changing rapidly, driven first and foremost by the need to speed up the transition to a sustainable future. We monitor policy processes to stay abreast of regulations and engage whenever we can support and accelerate change in our industry and agriculture. As a major producer of fertilizer, we are committed to driving excellence throughout our business and complying with applicable laws and other requirements in all our activities. Compliance is a minimum.
