After a series of audits carried out in 2017 by certification body DNV-GL, the Grupa Azoty Group companies, which are members of Fertilizers Europe, have been awarded certificates in Product Stewardship for best practices in the management of the fertilizer life cycle.

Product Management Audits are performed every three years by a certification body. The certificates are awarded in recognition of efforts of European fertilizer manufacturers towards best management practices in terms of product development, raw material acquisition, production, packaging, transport, storage, marketing and sales, product application, and services for farmers.

The award ceremony was held in Madrid on June 22nd 2017 as part of the annual meeting of Fertilizers Europe. On behalf of the Grupa Azoty Group companies, the certificates were collected by Paweł Łapiński, Vice President of the Management Board.

The certificates testify to the high standards of the European fertilizer industry and its positive efforts towards achieving sustainable practices. They are also the best evidence that the Grupa Azoty Group meets the top health, safety and environmental standards throughout fertilizer life cycle.

The next audit is scheduled for 2020.
