At CSBP, we're more than just a fertiliser supplier. From field research to the products we manufacture and supply, and the nutritional planning services we offer, we're constantly thinking about our environmental impact on the communities we serve and operate in.

We're committed to improving our environmental performance. We acknowledge and support the scientific consensus on climate change and are committed to contributing positively to the global goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, consistent with the Paris Agreement.

This is why we uphold the highest professional standards and provide informed advice to our customers. We invest heavily in research to develop our industry leading products and use cutting edge technology to support sustainable nutrient management practices.

Our Commitment Pillars

Sustainable farming

Sustainable farming

We define sustainable farming as methods and practices that are economically viable, environmentally sound and minimise risks to health (Fertilizer Australia 2021).

best practice

Best practice

We comply with all relevant laws and other obligations and collaborate with key regulators and industry associations to facilitate input into legislation, guidelines and industry best practice.

Impact reduction

Impact reduction

To us, sustainable nutrient management practices are those that maintain or enhance the economic viability of agricultural production, the natural resource base; and other ecosystems which are influenced by agricultural activities.

Advocacy

Advocacy

We recognise that sustainability of the environment directly affects the sustainability of agricultural businesses. We promote and encourage environmentally sound practices and work with our customers, agronomic consultants and other stakeholders.

 

 

Decarbonisation

Fertiliser is a critical input to the food production required to sustain a growing global population. Fertiliser also contributes a material share of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from food production, and fertiliser suppliers have an important role to play in decarbonising food supply chains. CSBP Fertilisers Net Zero Position details how we'll accelerate the decarbonisation of our operations and how we'll contribute towards emissions reduction across our supplier and customer value chains.

DecarbonisationAccelerate decarbonisation of our operations

We're focusing on:

  • Continued emissions reduction of our operational footprint by using electricity generated through the recovery of by-product heat at our Kwinana facility, which significantly reduces demand from the grid. We're also looking into replacing the small amount of the electricity we purchase from the grid with renewable energy.
  • Exploring implementation of low/no emissions solutions for our fleet, plant, and equipment

EmissionsEmissions reductions across value chains

CSBP Fertilisers will play a key role in supporting customers to
understand and optimise their fertiliser use and reduce emissions.

Some of the ways in which we'll do this are:

  • Understanding and measuring fertiliser emissions to serve as a
    reference for monitoring emission reductions and finding new ways
    to continue reduction.
  • Developing and deploying solutions
  • Through our continued focus on providing the best advice and improvements
    in products and farming systems, we can improve the efficiency
    of fertiliser use. This will involve using tools such as
    DecipherAg, NULogic and CSBP Detect Plus and building and
    leveraging new solutions.
  • We believe bigger decarbonisation opportunities will be
    unlocked if we work collaboratively with the industry through
    partnerships and research.
  • Working with our suppliers to minimise our upstream scope 3
    emissions in manufacturing, production and logistics.
