Our Commitment

We will be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients. Our action plan for the decade is to be Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030.

We have identified further key performance indicators (KPIs) in addition to Climate, Land and People that are crucial to our success: we call these our Fundamentals. The targets involved represent the required social license to operate for a multinational manufacturing company like Croda.

Aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)

When developing our Commitment, we assessed the impact of our operations, products and services, and entire value chain. We studied our contribution to each of the SDGs at an individual target level and identified 24 targets from the UN’s 169, across nine goals, that are also drivers of our strategy. These are the areas where we need to reduce our impacts and where we can make the biggest positive contributions. We grouped these around the themes of climate, nature and society - hence our Commitment to be Climate, Land and People Positive.
