As part of the ongoing sustainability transformation of global food production, carbon optimization and climate action are strategic priorities for Yara. Optimizing farming can make a substantial contribution, addressing 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to turn the potential of carbon sequestration in soils to a reality, and to reduce emissions at farm level, Yara is pursuing a fast-moving carbon innovation strategy.
As part of this, a new fast-growing Carbon Venture was launched in Yara, with the objective to turn the carbon potential at farm level into a sustainable growth business, while providing a new income stream to farmers worldwide. Our passion lies in building a portfolio of smart-carbon farming businesses across the world. As one of the early movers in this market, we are using our knowledge on carbon practices, our global presence, our digital and data capabilities, and our strong relationships with the food chain to pioneer an industry shaping business in this space.
Our key success factor is to quickly identify, validate and grow business opportunities that can make a difference at the farm. For this, we are looking for dynamic, passionate, and experienced entrepreneurs to quickly help us build the Carbon business, which we foresee to consist of start-up like businesses that should be run and nurtured from early seed phase to scale up. We are building a global portfolio of such businesses and hence look for entrepreneurs in all relevant agricultural markets globally. Given the special context of the Corona pandemic, we are open for different arrangements in terms of different geographies. The position reports directly into the Carbon team.
As a global organization we actively strive to reflect the diversity in society. We therefore encourage all qualified applicants from all background to apply, and are committed to creating a work environment that fits gender equality and allows combining career progress with the needs of a family or other personal circumstances
