All life on earth depends on the presence of nutrients. While the demand for phosphorus increases, the world’s supply of fossil resources is shrinking. The consequences for particularly the world’s food production would be enormous. The Dutch Nutrient Platform, founded in January 2011, is a cross-sectoral public-private network of Dutch organizations that share a common concern for the global impact of phosphorus depletion and the way society is dealing with nutrients in general. Together with the Dutch government, the Nutrient Platform, takes up the responsibility to facilitate organizations throughout the value chain in closing the phosphorus cycle. In general: The Nutrient Platform aims to create the conditions for the required transition towards more sustainable nutrient management.
