Product Stewardship

Celebrating fertilizer industry’s excellence

The European fertilizer industry’s aspirations for efficient, safe, secure and environmentally-friendly fertilizer production has led Fertilizers Europe to develop a product stewardship management programme to maintain and consolidate the industry’s advanced production techniques and safety procedures across Europe. Fertilizers Europe Product Stewardship Programme is compulsory for all its members, sets the highest global standards and involves all the players in the product chain.

All members of Fertilizers Europe successfully completed the Product Stewardship audit in 2020. To celebrate this important achievement of our industry, Fertilizers Europe produced a video showcasing the commitment of our members to health, safety, security and environmental performance.


"More than 120 fertilizer sites across Europe operate continuously to ensure production. Our industry is committed to the highest standards of safety, security, health and environmental performance."
