Our Approach

Our Approach

Mosaic’s Environmental, Social, and Governance Performance

Our sustainability efforts, or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance efforts, are directly connected to our corporate strategy and mission

Mining and fertilizer production require resource extraction, consumption of materials, generation of emissions in operations and water use. These activities are all necessary to fulfilling our mission to help the world grow the food it needs. From mine to market, we are working to minimize our impacts and maximize the value we deliver to diverse stakeholders around the globe. Our journey is ongoing, and we are continually evaluating what it means to be a good employer, supplier, neighbor and value creator.

We employ this strategy as a way to promote good stewardship of the natural, human and social resources we rely upon; mitigate risks; leverage opportunities; and solidify our position as an industry leader. Our work is prioritized in four focus areas and our 2025 ESG Performance Targets drive progress on the issues that are most important to Mosaic and our diverse stakeholders.

Responsible leadership

Responsible Leadership


Governance of ESG issues and programs is shared by many at Mosaic, but ultimately, it is our workforce of more than 12,000 that is responsible for the day-to-day work that drives our progress. This imbedded approach means that everyone – from dragline operators and engineers to administrative professionals and accountants – has responsibility for sustainability at Mosaic. For more information, see our Management Approach


Commitment to Transparency
