Agrium Advanced Technologies announced the establishment of a corporate Sustainability Team, designed to coordinate the variety of sustainable initiatives currently under way across the organization.

The new team features the addition of Sarah Fox as Agrium’s first sustainability initiatives specialist, bringing almost two decades of leadership experience in nonprofit and governmental environmental legislation and policy innovation to the organization.

Fox assumes her new position immediately, and will be based out of Agrium’s headquarters in Loveland, Colo. In her role, Fox will work closely with a variety of nongovernmental organizations and environmental industry thought-leaders to help ensure Agrium’s sustainability practices mirror accepted best practice, while providing leadership within the commercial fertilizer industry.

As a LEED Accredited Professional, Fox will also represent Agrium on the United States Green Building Council, the National Green School Committee, Project EverGreen Sustainability Committee and the RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment) Government Affairs committee.
