Presented to James Prokopanko, President and CEO
As a global leader in crop nutrition, The Mosaic Company sits at the nexus of two of the world’s most pressing problems: food security and water scarcity. To fulfill the company’s mission of helping the world grow the food it needs, Mosaic has a responsibility to bring its financial resources, innovative spirit, and expertise to the table through strategic partnerships with innovative organizations. Mosaic addresses these issues with three focus areas: food, water, and local community investments.
The Mosaic Villages Project works with its implementing partners to develop culturally relevant agricultural and community interventions: the Institute of Rural Research and Development (IRRAD) in India, HELPS International in Guatemala, and Millennium Promise in Africa.
Mosaic’s CEO James T. Prokopanko has developed a corporate culture where giving and volunteering are encouraged from front-line staff in the plants and mines to the senior leadership team. James is a founding board member of The Mosaic Company Foundation. He has led Mosaic’s commitment to invest 1% of profits in the community and is involved in signature program development such as The Mosaic Villages Project, which started in 2008. For The Mosaic Villages Project, Jim requested a companywide campaign to educate employees and allocated company agronomists to support smallhold farmers.
