Product Stewardship awards ceremony

19 June 2014

Minister Karpinski, the Polish Treasury Minister, today presided over the Fertilizers Europe Product Stewardship awards. 15 of our member companies passed the robust audit process managed by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). The Product Stewardship audit is the global leader in fertilizer stewardship. Product Stewardship was born in Europe, and is now being replicated around the world via our global fertilizer organisation IFA. It is another example of how Europe can be thought leaders globally on important issues.


“Fertilizers Europe, are proud of our Product Stewardship awards and  are convinced that they play a substantial role in improving the performance and image of the fertilizers industry. It is a management system, by DNV, which ensures that fertilizers are manufactured, handled, stored distributed and used in the safest possible way.” Jacob Hansen, Director General, Fertilizers Europe.


The Product Stewardship audit is a voluntary initiative of the industry and is mandatory for all members of Fertilizers Europe. It is verified by an independent professional auditing body (DNV) every 3 years.


“We are delighted to be present at this award ceremony. Our audit is stringent and robust and it is a reflection on the fertilizer industry in Europe that all Fertilizers Europe members have met these standards.” Günther Willems, DNV.
