Sustainability - Nufarm Europe
|As a company engaged in the development, production and supply of crop protection products, Nufarm is committed to the principles of sustainability which has been demonstrated by well established reporting on our performance against various health, safety and environmental parameters - more recently refined into a full sustainability report. Efforts aimed at improving the health, safety and environmental performance (HS&E) ally on Responsible Care®, an initiative of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA). The proper management of crop protection products throughout their whole life-cycles, as described in the International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management (FAO, 2013) is recognized as an integral part of this and stands as a joint commitment of the Crop Protection Companies who hold membership of the European Crop Protection Agency (ECPA).|
