土地 Provides Nutrients for the World's Crops

WE ARE COMMITTED TO RESPONSIBLE MINING

The land provides invaluable nutrients needed to grow crops around our growing world. 提取这些营养物质, 而至关重要的, is an intensive process that can temporarily disturb ecological resources. 

We mine phosphate in the United States, 秘鲁, 和巴西, 加拿大的钾肥, 美国和巴西. Phosphate ore is recovered using large machines called draglines or, 巴西的情况也是如此, 使用挖掘机. Once phosphate mining is complete, we conduct recovery or reclamation in accordance with regulations and return mined lands to productive uses for 野生动物 and people. Potash mining happens underground by way of shaft or solution mining techniques. The only surface areas that are disturbed are the actual footprint of the mine shaft and the adjacent above-ground processing facilities and tailings management areas.

Regardless of geography or mining technique, prior to the start of mining – or when extending or expanding a mine – permits are secured from local, 区域, state and federal government agencies. This thorough planning and approval processes protect water, 空气, 生态, 野生动物, 运输, 安全和其他环境, 健康, and public welfare considerations.

We are committed to minimizing our impacts on the environment through responsible mine planning, 允许, operation and reclamation practices. As it relates to the use phase of our products, particularly in the Amazon region in Brazil, we use our influence to support a stance that opposes illegal deforestation.

生物多样性

为什么这是个问题

Mining impacts can have direct and indirect impacts on biodiversity.

All active mine sites within the United States, Canada and Brazil are required to operate pursuant to federal, state/provincial and local regulations related to management of habitat and 野生动物.

森林砍伐

为什么这是个问题

正规最大博彩大全's core business includes the manufacturing and distribution of phosphate and potash crop nutrition products in Brazil—one of the world’s largest food producers and exporters and home to rich natural resources, 包括亚马逊雨林. Illegal deforestation in the Amazon poses threats to biodiversity, 气候变化, 水安全, 传统民族.

我们在做什么

In addition to working with retailers and end-users to promote best practices for fertilizer application that are protective of the environment, we also participate in forums that promote ethical, sensible and just land use change and economic policies. We have partnered with Brazilian Agriculture Re搜索 Corporation (Embrapa) in its efforts to promote sustainable agriculture practices and convert degraded pastureland into productive field. We are also deploying technologies to monitor land use across the agricultural value chain in at-risk growing areas.

废物及尾矿管理

为什么这是个问题

Mining generates wastes, such as sand and salt tailings and overburden. Tailings are stored in facilities—known as tailings management areas (TMAs). TMAs can be prone to incidents which can have safety, environmental or financial repercussions to our company and for the communities in the vicinity of our operations. We have nearly 60 TMAs across the company, 包括粘土沉降区, active dams and potash tailings areas.

我们在做什么

We have comprehensive procedures and systems in place for the management of TMAs. 响应不断发展的标准, we are enacting a holistic companywide governance structure for ongoing management of TMAs. We are also conducting governance reviews of all TMAs to assess against a global standard.
