Find out about our approach to sustainability

Sustainability

Through our Commitment to science-based targets and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we will be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients. We will create, make and sell solutions to tackle some of the biggest challenges the world is facing. We will be Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030.

Our Purpose - Smart science to improve lives™ - underpins our commitment to sustainability. Smart science embodies our innovative philosophy and ability to offer customers something different and valuable. Improving lives describes the positive impact our products have in use and how we are working to reduce the environmental impact of our actions.


Our Commitment
 to sustainability is a fundamental aspect of how we work, how we are judged, and how we judge ourselves, as we decouple our continued growth and increasing shareholder value from our impacts on the environment.
