Our Sustainability Strategy
Driving Business for Good
We want to strive for a sustainable and positive impact for people, nature and climate through our business and all along our value chain – working together with suppliers, partners and our customers.
This supports our business objectives and aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It involves everyone in our supply chain and it empowers every colleague to make change happen.
Acting On Climate Change
Global action is needed to address climate change. We are acting to minimize our impact on climate and aim to lead our industry towards a carbon neutral future.
Nature is our inspiration and our driving force. Embracing nature means championing biodiversity all along our supply chain.
Accelerating our sustainability efforts
Striving for positive change
For decades, we have been creating a positive impact for people, nature, & climate. Through the latest taste solutions and investments in renewable energy, we strive for positive change.
Contribution to the United Nations Global Compact
As the primary international organization implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations (UN) has influenced our sustainability strategy for over 30 years. We partner with the UN and integrate these goals into our growth strategy.
Our international sustainability partnerships stretch back to 1991, when we became the first company in our sector to sign the Sustainability Charter of the International Chamber of Commerce. Since 2008, we have been a signatory of the UN Global Compact and CEO Mandate; recognized as one of the Global Compact LEAD companies; and joined the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Taskforce in 2019. As an UNGC Labour and Decent Work Impact sponsor, we seek to contribute to the development of a consensus within the business community on the key principles of decent work, such as the definition of a "living wage". We aim to ensure a living wage for all our employees by employees by 2025 and to expand its implementation in our supply chain.
