Sustainability: Our Commitment to Stewardship

More than seven decades after our company’s founding, the cornerstone of our business philosophy remains the same; to produce environmentally conscious products in a responsible and safe manner that protects our communities, employees, and customers.  

At our facilities we constantly look for ways to lower our environmental impact, investing in green energy and water conservation projects and increasing operating efficiency by utilizing recycled and lower impact raw materials in our finished products.  

Product stewardship is integrated into every aspect of our business from crop nutrition and protection to mining and industrial markets. 

Our Crop Vitality crop nutrition products include non-hazardous, pH neutral, water clear liquids that provide readily available plant nutrition with significant environmental benefits of conserving irrigation water, reducing nitrogen losses and strengthening crop drought resistance.    

NovaSource’s line of crop protection offerings include naturally sourced sun protection products and organic fungicides. 

Products in moleko, Tessenderlo Kerley’s Mining and Industrial Division, are utilized in mining and water treatment applications replacing more hazardous chemicals lowering our customer’s application safety and environmental risks.

Responsible care

Responsible Care

The Tessenderlo Group considers safe and low environmental impact production to be a fundamental requirement of its industrial activities.

Through their national associations, companies like those in the Tessenderlo Group and Tessenderlo Kerley families of companies work together to continuously improve their health, safety and environmental performance, and to communicate about their products and processes. This commitment is translated into policy principles and guidelines for the protection of the environment, health and safety in production and distribution. For further information, visit
