Yara at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting

Yara International ASA, one of the world’s largest crop nutrition and sustainable agriculture solution companies, announced a Commitment to Action at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) 2013 Annual Meeting to implement “Creating Impact,” Yara’s new strategic direction to meet the challenge of sustainably feeding a fast-growing global population. 

In addition, Jørgen Haslestad, Yara CEO and President, participated on a CGI panel on September 24 titled “Shared Value Investing: Making the Shared Value Case to Investors.”

 

“The world’s food security is facing increasing pressures due to the availability of land and water and environmental change, and in just 35 years, it is estimated that the world will need to produce 70 percent more food than it does today in order to feed a projected global population of nine billion people. At Yara, we believe that our own long-term growth can only be secured by using the economic engine of our business to address the challenges of food security, resource management and the environment,” said Jørgen Haslestad, Yara’s CEO and President.
