Mosaic Company Recognized Among "100 Best Corporate Citizens"

PLYMOUTH, Minn., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) has been recognized on Corporate Responsibility Magazine's 14th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, known as the world's top corporate responsibility ranking based on publicly available information. This is the fourth year in a row that Mosaic has been named to the list.

Mosaic ranks No. 52 on the list—in recognition of its conservation and environmental stewardship efforts, as well as its philanthropy and transparency. Notable accomplishments include:

  • Mosaic has decreased its groundwater use at its Central Florida operations by 50 percent over the last 20 years.
  • Mosaic produces approximately 6.9 million gigajoules of clean electricity through waste heat capture—to satisfy 47 percent of company-wide electrical demand.
  • Mosaic is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, affirming its deep commitment to operate according to universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anticorruption.

Mosaic also was noted for its philanthropy and the investments of The Mosaic Company Foundation—including The Mosaic Villages Project—which is moving 300,000 smallholder farmers out of poverty in ten countries on three continents. Watch videos about how The Mosaic Villages Project farmers are improving their livelihoods by growing more food through sustainable intensification and agronomic practices.

"Without a doubt, Mosaic's greatest strength is its workforce. Our more than 8,000 global employees translate Mosaic's values of integrity, excellence, sustainability and connectivity into action every day," said Jim Prokopanko, President and CEO, The Mosaic Company. "It's because of their dedication to excellence that our company stands out—to customers, shareholders and the global business community. We're grateful for their achievements and this 100 Best Corporate Citizens List recognition."

Mosaic's ranking is based on more than 298 data points in seven categories, including environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial performance and governance. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List's open and transparent methodology is governed by a Methodology Committee of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association.
