Welcome to Croda Foundation
We are the independently managed philanthropic arm of Croda International, established to benefit organisations, projects and communities globally, using Smart science to improve lives™.
In line with Croda’s Commitment to be People Positive by 2030, the Foundation’s trustees have decided our goal is to permanently improve one million lives by 2030. This will be in the communities that our Foundation has identified and will be by providing access to people, know-how and capital. In carrying out our work, we support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and work in consortium and partnership with communities, organisations and charities.
Our priority areas:
- Improve health and wellbeing
- Reduce hunger and poverty, and improve livelihoods
- Protect and restore forests and ecosystems
Our United Nations priority Sustainable Development Goals
We have identified nine UN SDGs where we believe our charitable objectives can have a meaningful impact and improve lives. We believe that in developing long-lasting partnerships that address multiple SDGs, the greatest impact can be made in permanently improving people's lives. These SDGs form our core criteria for selecting projects and communities to support globally.
