Employees Make the Difference

Mosaic took an important step forward in 2015 by announcing three measurable 2020 Environmental Targets—by 2020, to reduce by 10 percent per product tonne our freshwater and energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions.

Achieving these targets requires companywide support, and leadership at every level of the organization. To accelerate learning and performance, we are actively sharing innovations and best practices across our sites and business segments. Our goal is to help employees learn how their work impacts Mosaic’s progress and encourage collaboration as we strive for excellence.
