Purpose and ambition

A green maritime industry. A healthy planet for future generations.


Yara International’s mission is to responsibly feed the world and protect the planet. This helps guide and enable our company’s purpose:

We provide technologies to enable a greener maritime industry.


Yara International’s vision is a collaborative society; a world without hunger; a planet respected. Our founders faced and overcame the greatest food challenge of their time. Since then, humanity has evolved into a planetary force that has transformed the earth and fueled climate change to be one of the greatest challenges of our time.

Shipping emissions have grown exponentially to exceed one billion tons of CO2 each year. Future generations depend on us to reverse this emissions growth to ensure a sustainable future on this planet. At Yara Marine Technologies, our stewardship is our greatest honor, and ensuring a healthy planet for future generations is our greatest privilege. ​That is why we drive the change towards a zero-emissions industry.

In the Nordic countries, we have always been at the forefront, leading the way in uncharted waters. We are pioneers, finding new ways to protect our environment. We have the skillset to create new solutions and the conviction to see them realized. 

Our ambition is that our work will ensure a healthy planet for future generations.
