At ADAMA, we believe social responsibility is an inseparable part our business. This means we continuously listen to our stakeholders, communities, and partners to deepen our understanding of their needs and design programs and initiatives together, using our combined capabilities, strengths, and resources. As a result, our programs are built on rock-solid foundations, ensuring long-lasting relationships that make a positive impact with our communities and on our employees.
Our recent collaboration in Israel with the NGO "HaShomer HaChadash" is a great example of the way we work. The COVID-19 pandemic led to Israel’s farmers struggling to obtain field workers, alongside a range of unprecedented challenges. Together, we developed a unique youth volunteer program to support local farmers, while connecting them to the land and the field of agriculture.
Our Social Investment Policy and Strategy
Each year ADAMA donates at least 1% of its profit before tax each year. In 2021, ADAMA donated $2.5 million (2.9% of profit before tax). This exceptional donation was due to the additional needs and challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our social investments are mainly in Israel, India, Brazil and North America. However, we encourage and support all local community activities in every country ADAMA operates in.
