Protect & Sustain is the trademark name for the International Fertilizer Industry Association's (IFA) Product Stewardship initiative. By taking measures to ensure that its products are responsibly-developed, sourced, manufactured, stored, transported and applied, the Association and its participating members are demonstrating their commitment to ensuring that fertilizer and their intermediate products are used to the benefit of all and that its inherent risks are at least minimized- and where possible eliminated.
Moreover, IFA’s members recognize that the managed minimization of accidents, waste and product misuse are not just the practices of good corporate citizens, they are also critical to core business processess. Thus, maximizing efficiency and productivity, whilst minimising exposure to expensive incidents and legal ramifications is viewed as a central strategy to avoid potentially crippling future costs.
These are the three key objectives of Protect&Sustain:
safety in the workplace and beyond, into our communities and environment;
security from product misuse;
and sustainability through maximising efficiency and minimising environmental impact.
