In September 2015, representatives from Agrium joined world leaders to participate in the launch of the 17 U.N. SDGs. Our company is well positioned to meaningfully contribute to many of the goals, most notably the end of hunger and poverty, the achievement of food security and improved nutrition, and the promotion of sustainable agriculture. Land, water and nutrients are key inputs into food production. The growing scarcity of land and water in many parts of the world makes it imperative to use and manage these resources sustainably. Our focus on promoting nutrient stewardship and offering innovative products and precision agriculture services helps to increase crop input efficiency, resulting in less waste and potential runoff while improving crop yields and quality.
