The Mosaic Company Recognized For Leadership In Climate Change Action And Transparency

Stocks in this article: MOS

PLYMOUTH, Minn., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) was recognized today for the voluntary reporting of its global greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and for emissions reductions activities by CDP. Mosaic has reported the GHG inventory of over 50 facilities in seven countries to the CDP since 2009.

For its efforts, Mosaic is included in the 2013 CDP S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and the CDP S&P 500 Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI). Mosaic is the first crop nutrition company recognized for inclusion in these indices.

"We are proud of the progress made by our operations, environmental, health and safety, and supply chain teams in reducing Mosaic's energy use and emissions profiles," said Mosaic President and CEO Jim Prokopanko. "Sustainability is an integral part of Mosaic's business strategy, and this recognition encourages us to further reduce our energy costs and environmental impact—which also helps ensure long-term growth and shareholder value."

In 2012, Mosaic's emissions reductions came from a variety of company-wide initiatives. This included the expansion of Mosaic's capacity to transmit clean electricity to its mines from nearby manufacturing plants, where waste heat is converted into carbon free electricity. Other projects with emissions reductions included installing LED lighting at facilities in Florida and China, transitioning to a natural gas powered trucking fleet in Florida and the design of Nexfos ®, an innovative livestock feed product that significantly reduces impacts to the environment compared to traditional feedstock products.

In 2012, Mosaic produced enough electricity—approximately 5.9 million gigajoules—through cogeneration to satisfy 39 percent of its companywide electrical demand. By producing and using its own clean energy, Mosaic avoided approximately 1 million tonnes of CO2e emissions, the equivalent of taking approximately 195,000 cars off the road for a year.
