TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) was recently named to Newsweek’s 2020 list of America’s Most Responsible Companies.

The achievement is validation of Mosaic’s commitments in the ESG space: managing environmental performance, investing in employees, partnering in communities, and being transparent about its impacts.
“Responsibility, in every one of our roles and at every step of the process, is critical to Mosaic’s ability to deliver long-term value to our diverse constituents,” said Joc O’Rourke, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Mosaic Company. “Strong ESG performance is part of what sets Mosaic apart—now and in the future. We will continue to push forward and seek opportunities to deliver even better performance in years to come.”
