Achieving our goals means achieving higher levels of performance,
every day.

We began a journey nearly two years ago to create true operational excellence across our Phosphates and Potash operations. The goal of this journey is simple: to drive substantial improvement in our productivity across all dimensions of performance, including safety, throughput, cost, capital and quality.

Over time, this effort will give us a process-based source of competitive advantage. We believe Mosaic is on track to emerge as one of the safest, lowest-cost and most capital-efficient producers in our industry. Our efforts so far have yielded tangible recurring annualized benefits of over $125 million $40 million in Potash, $85 million in Phosphates.

A measure of mechanical productivity, improving "wrench time" is one way that Mosaic is pursuing operational excellence throughout the company.
