12 GC PROFILE As part of the task force, Bradley's team worked collaboratively with other departments and functions to introduce a tracing app developed by Triax Technologies and ensure the company implemented it within legal guidelines and privacy regulations. "Proximity Trace" tags were rolled out across facilities and mine sites and attached to workers' clothing or hard hats to produce an audio and visual alert to those who come within six feet of one another. These sensors also automatically log data for Nutrien leaders to quickly perform contact tracing if a positive case arises. Initially deployed at Nutrien's nitrogen and phosphate sites in the US, Nutrien later rolled Proximity Trace out at potash mines in Saskatchewan and corporate offices in Colorado, Illinois, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Since implementing the technology, Nutrien has been able to safely support as many as 1,700 employees and contractors at its nitrogen and phosphate sites simultaneously. The physical distancing alerts have reduced the number of close contacts, positive cases and quarantines. Additionally, the automated data system has improved the efficiency and accuracy of contact tracing. The legal department is also involved in supporting Nutrien's "Feeding the Future" plan, which includes a series of ESG commit- ments to be achieved by 2030. These commitments involve feeding the planet sustainably, reaching at least a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and inclusive agriculture. This form of agriculture aims to support rural livelihoods and increase the participation of underrepresented stakeholders in agriculture.
