Our Commitment to Sustainability:
CEO Message
Mosaic's third Sustainability Report takes stock of our progress, opportunities and goals, and I am confident that our mission to help the world grow the food it needs is attainable with an ever-improving focus on sustainability.
Krishi Jyoti: Mosaic Villages Project India
Krishi Jyoti means "enlightened agriculture" and brings modern agricultural inputs and practices to farmers with the objective of improving the productivity of their fields.
For Generations to Come:
Mosaic's Commitment to the Land
Mosaic reclaims every acre we mine and leads the industry in returning mined land to productive uses, for wildlife and people. And we want our reclamations to be valued by future generations.
4Rs Nutrient Stewardship: The Nexus of Food and Water
With the right nutrient management, crop yields can increase without an environmental compromise. The 4R's are about doing everything "right" in regard to fertilizer application and effectively reducing agriculture's potential for negative externalities.
Safety: The Bottom Line is People
Mosaic's focus on environmental health and safety is first and foremost in any decision we make. Our culture of safety is something that we pride ourselves on. It's a culture of helping each other ensure that intervene where necessary to protect people and sustain our performance.

Investment and Procurement Practices

HR1

Percentage and Total Number of Significant Investment Agreements that Include Human Rights Clauses

We have made no significant acquisitions since Mosaic's formation. We define "significant acquisition" to mean an investment that moved Mosaic into a position of majority ownership in another entity. During this reporting period, however, Mosaic completed its investment in a joint venture with subsidiaries of Vale S.A. and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. that own a phosphate rock mine in the Bayóvar region in Peru. All potential acquisition or investment opportunities include an evaluation of country risk, with guidance from an outside advisory firm. Mosaic intends to integrate human rights criteria more explicitly in screening any potential acquisitions.

Mosaic seeks to do business only with suppliers who operate ethically.

Mosaic feels a responsibility to actively engage our suppliers and contractors around issues of sustainability, and is undertaking efforts to monitor our contractors' performance and compliance with Mosaic's safety policies through screening and audit processes. Mosaic also maintains a 24-hour independently administered confidential and anonymous hotline for all Mosaic employees to report any improper practices. To date, however, Mosaic has not conducted a formal human rights screening of significant contractors and suppliers.
