Our commitment to environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility

As the world’s largest producer of ammonia, CF Industries plays a central role in addressing critical, wide-reaching issues. It is our mission to more sustainably feed and fuel the world. Decarbonization is central to our business strategy to deliver on our mission.

Ammonia and ammonia-derived nitrogen fertilizer products increase crop yields. It is estimated that fertilizers increase global food production by as much as 50%. At the same time, fertilizer allows more crops to be grown on less land, minimizing land required for food production, and preserving carbon-sequestering forests. Additionally, ammonia has been identified as a key solution to help meet increasing demand for clean energy sources from energy-intensive industries. 

To get there, CF Industries is committed to decarbonizing our operations and in turn manufacturing nitrogen-based fertilizer and other ammonia products with lower embodied carbon. We are leveraging our expertise in ammonia production, the breadth of our network, and our portfolio of clean energy initiatives to meet our corporate strategy. This has positioned the Company at the forefront of decarbonization planning for hard-to-abate industries globally and as a provider of fertilizer that helps feed the world.

We take a broad view of the sustainability issues where we believe we can make an impact as we listen to all our stakeholders. Our initiatives to reduce the environmental footprint of our business often attract the most attention. However, our sustainability focus encompasses a wider range of critical topics, including safety, inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E), food security, nutrient management, biodiversity, and community engagement.

Message from President and CEO, Tony Will

To our stakeholders:

CF Industries continued to make progress in 2023 across many strategic initiatives including the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) dimensions that we believe are a critical component of the long-term success of our Company. These advances have been driven by outstanding work from the CF Industries team, underpinned by strong financial performance. Our approach to ESG is grounded in our Do It Right culture – we do the right things for the right reasons.

Today, this takes shape through our efforts to reduce our carbon emissions while also addressing other issues important to CF Industries and its stakeholders, including inclusion and diversity, safety, food security, nutrient management, biodiversity and community involvement.

Taken together, our success across these areas will contribute to a more sustainable world. At the same time, we believe our success will drive growth, create opportunities for CF Industries, and build a stronger and more resilient company for the future.
