The Fertilizer Institute has released new data highlighting industry improvements in sustainability performance in key priority areas such as workforce safety, the environment, fertilizer use, and innovation. Please join TFI’s Sustainability Report webinar where we’ll walk you through the report as well as downloadable tools and resources we’ve developed to help you tell your sustainability story.

About the Report

TFI has collected data since 2013 on metrics that provide insight into the industry’s efforts to improve safety, security, sustainability, environmental stewardship, and efficiency. The data announced this year was gathered in 2023 and reflects industry operations in 2022.

Report Highlights Include

  • Participating members reported a total of 25 zero-discharge facilities, at which all wastewater is recycled.
  • When compared to the Department of Labor’s data for similar companies in wholesale, mining, and manufacturing, our members outperform the industry benchmarks in every category.
  • Farmers in the US have a nitrogen use efficiency of 70%, which is much higher in comparison to the world average of 55%. The 2023 4R Advocates had an average of 100% nitrogen use efficiency.
  • TFI members are working towards decarbonizing manufacturing sites, including boosting energy efficiency, carbon capture and sequestration, investing in electrolysis technologies, and more. Low carbon ammonia technologies can increase the sustainability of fertilizers while ensuring agricultural productivity. TFI is developing a protocol to define carbon intensity for ammonia production in North America.

That’s our industry story. Now learn how you can use the report data to promote your company’s commitment to sustainability to your customers and community.
