A Message from Mosaic's CEO

Many of us take the food we eat for granted. But in communities around the world, malnutrition and hunger are real and urgent issues. Each year, our global population grows by another 75 million people. That's the equivalent of adding Egypt — the world's 16th most populous country — to the global dinner table every year. By 2020, the world's farmers will need to provide food for some 7.6 billion people.

Message from CEO

As the global population continues to grow, there is little doubt that food security will rank among the world's highest priorities.

Today at Mosaic, it already does.

We are the world's leading provider of two essential crop nutrients — phosphate and potash. Scientists estimate that crop nutrients account for 40% to 60% of crop yields. Around the world, Mosaic is helping farmers produce more food on less land through efficient and responsible use of our crop nutrients. We are helping the world grow the food it needs.

Mosaic is committed to this mission — and we recognize we will achieve it by maintaining our focus on sustainability. We're intensifying our drive to build a stronger company by incorporating sustainability principles into every aspect of our business.

In this, Mosaic's first sustainability report, we're pleased to share information about our programs in economic and community development, agricultural innovation, conservation and environmental stewardship. You'll also learn how we will quantify and share our sustainability performance in the years to come.

We are proud of our success in reducing emissions, providing essential resources for farmers around the world, reclaiming land and protecting threatened species. But this is only the beginning of our work. We're setting new, aggressive sustainability goals for the years to come.

Mosaic's 7,500 employees embrace sustainability. They are at the heart of the initiatives detailed in this report. Because of their commitment, Mosaic will continue to grow as a sustainable business and achieve our mission of helping the world grow the food it needs.
