Nitrate-based solutions are essential in ensuring greater food security, optimal land utilisation and reducing emissions; helping you achieve efficiency and profitability while caring for the planet.

Nitrate-based solutions are essential in ensuring greater food security, optimal land utilisation and reducing emissions; helping you achieve efficiency and profitability while caring for the planet.

Changing how you fertilise can be the first step in reducing emissions, improving air quality and reducing your carbon footprint. Yara’s nitrate-based solutions combine a high-quality product with precision technology to substantially improve the impact your farm has on the environment.

Why sustainability matters

10% of ammonia emissions in Europe can be reduced right now
Switching to nitrate-based fertilisers can reduce ammonia emissions by 10%

 

Caring for the land

Land is a limited resource. To feed future generations, farmers need to grow more on the same amount of land, while reducing any impact on the environment. Nitrate-based solutions provide a way to nurture both your crops and your soil. Giving plants the nutrition they need now and reaping benefits in the future.

Emissions would be

4.5 times higher

than they are now without chemical fertilisers because of the amount of land that would be deforested if farmers could not restore depleted land.

 

Yara's sustainability commitment

Reducing agriculture’s impact on the environment is something Yara is passionate about. We are working with farmers and our partners along the value chain to find ways to improve agricultural production and make it more sustainable.

Sustainability-commitment---Energy-efficiency.png Energy efficiency. 90% of Yara’s total energy use comes from ammonia production. Recent upgrades to the majority of our plants have placed us among the most energy-efficient in the industry.
Sustainability-commitment---Water-conservation.png Water conservation. Our research and development teams are dedicated to finding out how to provide optimum nutrition to plants with limited water availability.
Sustainability-commitment---Climate-commitment.png Climate commitment. Yara has a leading industry position on greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement and climate-smart agriculture. We have cut our GHG emissions by half since 2004 and can reduce the carbon footprint of crop production significantly.
Sustainability-commitment---Green-nitrates.png Green nitrates. Yara has committed to be carbon neutral by 2050. In conjunction with a leading food chain company, we will supply green (none fossil fuel-based) nitrogen by 2023.
