K+S is an agricultural raw minerals company with roots stretching back to Germany in the mid-19th century. The company has over 90 production and distribution sites spread over five continents and 23 countries, with activities spanning fertilisers, animal feed and salt, alongside pharma, waste and water management.
K+S ranks 27th among its agricultural input segment peers. It outperforms its peers in the governance and strategy measurement area by linking the top management’s remuneration to sustainability key performance indicators (KPIs). However, the company underperforms compared to its peers in the nutrition area. It could also improve its performance by improving its social practices, as its human rights policies lack basic requirements, such as requiring age checks and prohibiting document retention.
