Inclusion, Diversity & Equity Highlights

We believe that our Inclusion, diversity, and equity (ID&E) efforts, which are measured against CF Industries’ corporate sustainability goals, have brought our business strategy and Core Values to life. Our ID&E program is built on three pillars: Representation, Education & Skills Development, and Belonging. These three pillars are the foundation for our company to attract, retain, and develop an effective team of employees.


CF Industries has developed an ID&E scorecard to measure the impact of individual ID&E efforts and help us prioritize our most meaningful initiatives.

Education and Skill Development

We continue to require Disrupting Everyday Bias training as part of our core curriculum and onboarding strategy, with 100% of employees completing online training.


Our Inclusion Resource Group (IRG) is an active, employee-led forum for CF Industries employees to get involved and help create a workplace where we all feel included.
