(Reuters) – Canadian fertilizer producer Nutrien Ltd said on Thursday it aimed to achieve at least a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the latest company seeking to tackle climate change.

The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based company, which will deploy wind and solar energy at four potash plants by the end of 2025, will invest in new technologies and tap into low-carbon fertilizers.

Agricultural companies, including Mosaic and Corteva, have set up carbon emissions targets as increasingly climate-conscious investors push firms to be environmentally friendly.
