Our Sustainability Strategy is Driven by Results

Sustainability is embedded in every aspect of what we do at ADAMA. With regenerative and sustainable farming becoming a priority for growers and consumers everywhere, we focus on reducing the environmental footprint of our products while delivering high yields. 

At the same time, we endeavor to run our operations in a way that consistently lowers our carbon footprint, the waste we create, and the water we use. We are committed to worker safety, workplace diversity, equity and inclusion and the well-being of the communities in which we work. 

Our Products and Portfolio Health

We’re bringing to market a growing number of highly effective, sustainable crop protection solutions to meet the needs of farmers through innovations based on our unique formulation technologies with enhanced product features such as increased adhesiveness, rainfastness, and leaf penetration to reduce environmental impact. 

Together with our biological offerings, the solutions help growers achieve higher crop productivity and output quality while minimizing the negative impact on soil and water and lessening the need for additional land resources.

Our Environmental Sustainability

We continuously invest in technologies and infrastructure to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and in the past three years have invested 342M USD in environmental upgrades. We monitor our air emissions, effluent loads, and other pollutants, to keep them all as low as possible. 

We strive to lower our dependency on fossil fuels and we are proud that some of our manufacturing sites have switched to 100% renewable energy. We actively engage in constructive dialogue with our neighboring communities and governmental and regulatory bodies to align with their environmental objectives.

Our Sustainability Governance

We manage sustainability just as we manage all our business activities, and that’s why a key element of our sustainability strategy is our Sustainability Network, comprising representatives from all global functions and commercial units. The people involved are at all levels, each with clearly delineated functions and responsibilities that enable us to set and meet our sustainability goals.
