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, customers and employees.
At our facilities, we constantly look for ways to lower our environmental impact, while investing in green energy and water conservation projects, and increasing operating efficiency by utilizing recycled and lower-impact raw materials in our finished products.
From crop nutrition and protection, to mining and industrial markets, product stewardship is integrated into every aspect of our business.
Our crop nutrition products at Crop Vitality include non-hazardous, pH-neutral, water-clear liquids that provide readily available plant nutrition with significant environmental benefits, including irrigation water conservation, reducing nitrogen losses and strengthening crop drought resistance.
NovaSource’s line of crop protection offerings include naturally sourced sun protection products and organic fungicides. Protecting growing crops is vital to ensuring everyone has access to food at a reasonable price.
Products at moleko, our mining and industrial division, are utilized in mining and water treatment applications, which replace more hazardous chemicals and lower our customer’s application safety and environmental risks.
Tessenderlo Group, the parent company of Tessenderlo Kerley, considers safe and low environmental impact production to be a fundamental requirement of its industrial activities. That’s why we’ve endorsed the principles of Responsible Care, the chemical industry’s global voluntary initiative.
We work to continuously improve our health, safety and environmental performance, and communicate effectively about our products and processes. This commitment is translated into policy principles and guidelines for the protection of the environment, as well as health and safety in production and distribution.
Our steadfast commitment to our customers is one of our core values. With our focus on specialty and sustainable sulfur solutions, we are proud to support so many essential industries, and look forward to the sustainable future. Go here for more information.
Responding to a World Hungry for Sustainable Solutions
The world’s population is expected to grow to 9 billion people by 2050. A global technology boom in agriculture is increasing efficiencies in water use and demand for high efficiency liquid fertilizers and effective crop protection.
Crop Vitality and NovaSource products deliver demonstrated value to growers who are trying to maintain financially successful enterprises on the same land that has belonged to families for generations.
Farmers are still the best stewards of the environment and the most vigilant conservationists. They know and respect the value of their land. So do we. That’s why Tessenderlo Kerley is committed to delivering products that are kind to the land, effective for crops, efficient in terms of water use, and beneficial for the grower when higher quality crops generate greater return on investment.
