Key events in 2019
PhosAgro joined the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an international initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
A report on PhosAgro’s climate change initiatives in 2019 drafted and submitted via’s CDP’s online response system. "C" score received. Work started to draft the Company’s GHG reduction strategy to 2020 and 2030 along with the regulations on monitoring GHG emissions, and the GHG reduction action plan.
PhosAgro backed the landmark EU decision to put a cap on phosphate fertilizers with high cadmium content from 2022
and introduce voluntary "Low Cd Content" labelling for fertilizers with a cadmium content of less than 20 mg/kg. We also supported the initiative by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to enshrine in the International Code of Conduct for the Sustainable Use of Fertilizers recommendations to governments worldwide to introduce restrictions on fertilizers with a high content of toxic impurities.
