“50% of the world’s population can feed themselves thanks to mineral fertilisers.”
Yara leads the world when it comes to crop nutrition. With over 17,000 colleagues in 60 countries around the world, we develop innovative agricultural and environmental solutions for a nature-positive food future. Our planet is currently home to 8 billion people, and that number is expected to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050. That means we have to produce 50% more food, yet fulfil our promise to cut CO2 emissions by 60%. To meet these challenges, we’re improving our products and processes and making them more sustainable, we’re working on CO2 storage solutions, and we’re actively developing sustainable alternatives for our essential raw materials.
These developments are being put into practice in factories such as Yara Sluiskil, our largest production facility in the world. Since 1990, we’ve already cut our emissions by 65%. Our ambition: 85-90% reduction by 2030. To make it happen, we’re looking for a new generation of thinkers and doers.More about Yara

Yara is a major manufacturer, so every fraction of CO2 reduction makes a difference
Yara Sluiskil is the world’s largest production facility of the Norwegian company Yara International. Yara Sluiskil produces nitrogen fertilisers and industrial chemicals, including Air1, AdBlue and NOxCare which capture harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx). Yara Sluiskil also produces the CO2 responsible for the bubbles in soft drinks and beer, and dry ice on which products such as vaccines are stored. Yara uses a range of raw materials, such as natural gas (methane), air and water. Solids including dolomite stone and gypsum are used as a binding agent in fertiliser granules and contribute to soil improvement.More about Yara Sluiskil
