ResponsibleAg Welcomes Peter Mutschler as New Instructor

Mutschler brings 40 years of environmental and safety experience to auditor training

ARLINGTON, VA (March 25, 2024) —Earlier this year, Peter Mutschler was named as a new instructor for ResponsibleAg auditor training. Mutschler brings a wealth of experience including creating an auditing and compliance consulting system for Farmers Union Central Exchange cooperatives and overseeing compliance and environmental remediations for the retail side of what became CENEX and latter CHS. He retired from there in 2019 as the Director of Safety and Environment for the country operations division.

Each ResponsibleAg auditor must successfully complete the ResponsibleAg Auditor Training course and become credentialed before performing an audit. “ResponsibleAg auditors are the heart of this important, industry-led program,” says Kyle Springs, Chair of ResponsibleAg and Senior Director of Safety & Health, Retail for Nutrien Ag Solutions. “The auditors assess up to 17 areas of a facility to ensure accurate and credible audits, which enable ResponsibleAg-certified facilities to demonstrate their commitment to environmental, health, safety, and security performance.”

Mutschler has a new role with ResponsibleAg, but he isn’t new to the certification program. He is an original member of the ResponsibleAg Board of Directors and has taken part in many ResponsibleAg Audits.

“Pete not only brings broad experience and knowledge to the ResponsibleAg Auditor Training course, but he is also dedicated to teaching others,” Springs says.

Mutschler will be conducting the next ResponsibleAg Auditor Training course, which is scheduled for July 9-12, 2024, in Owensboro, Ky. To register, visit
