Compliance is a license to operate

Group of diverse Yara employees

At Yara we believe that success can only be celebrated when it is achieved in the right way. Our manner of conducting business defines who we are as a company. We use this internally as a directional compass making compliance the foundation of how we behave and make decisions. Our ethical business conduct helps drive the core values we live and work by: Ambition, Curiosity, Collaboration, Accountability

We aspire to create trust and to demonstrate our commitment to acting with consistent integrity.

Our policies

Our policies serve as both an internal and external compass for all our employees and business partners. By building a culture that supports ethical business practices and upholds strong expectations of others, we can make a difference. Together, we can do business sustainably.

You can help us by speaking up

Lady with thought bubble

We encourage and remind our employees and members of the public to speak up through our many reporting channels whenever you witness unethical behavior that conflicts with our values or threatens our reputation. All reports are treated with the utmost discretion, and we do not tolerate any retaliation against anyone who has contacted us in good faith.

How do we assure that the same rules apply for all Yara employees?

Ethics and compliance is not just talk. We have created a program that is both preventive and reactive so that around 18,000 employees follow the same guidelines. We believe in creating a culture that supports people who voice their concerns, and empowers everyone to speak up when something unexpected occurs.
