The Infinite Fertilizers programme converts responsible action, great experience and ongoing research carried out over years by the great European fertilizer producers associated to Fertilizers Europe into a set of rules.
This programme was set up through the Product Stewardship initiative and through Nutrient Stewardship, which was recently created..
1Ensures that fertilizers, raw materials and intermediate products are manufactured, packaged and handled, stored, distributed and applied, promoting the protection of health, safety, quality and respect for the environment.
2It promotes best practices when handling nutrients, increasing farmers' knowledge about the correct selection and use of the products and the adoption of optimal application technologies.
The companies that subscribe to the Infinite Fertilizers principles take on and develop the following guidelines:
Pursuant to the Product Stewardship programme, each member agrees to:
Application of the management principles: Plan, Do, Check, Act. An overall assessment of the risks is carried out for the life-cycle of the product and a management system is created to reduce and control the risks for people, assets and the environment.
The management takes ownership of the activities contemplated and promotes the change.
Product Stewardship is translated into the responsible management of safety, health and the environment throughout the life-cycle of the products, in keeping with legislation, and respecting the best practice guidelines of the chemical industry.
The life-cycle of the product covers the follow-up on elements as varied as:
Fertilizers Europe, in collaboration with its members, has also prepared a tool to calculate the carbon footprint of all fertilizing products, including intermediate products.
Fertiberia, in keeping with the commitment required by the Infinite Fertilizers initiative, uses this tool to calculate the carbon footprint of all its products in an ongoing way and with the aim of gradually reducing it as much as possible.
In 2003, Fertilizers Europe, an association that includes the main European fertilizer manufacturers, set up a product called Product Stewardship.
As a result of the commitment to quality, Grupo Fertiberia joined this programme with the aim of ensuring that its fertilizers, raw materials and intermediate products are manufactured, packaged and handled, stored, distributed and applied, ensuring the protection of health, safety, quality and respect for the environment.
These codes were published by Fertilizers Europe and written up by experts in fertilization and members of the member companies. The aim is to promote the responsible use of nitrogenous fertilizers and urea to achieve an efficient handling of crops in the European area, preventing the contamination of the atmosphere and the water.
