Sustainability in the Personal Care industry
We continue to build on our renewable raw material heritage to create, make and sell sustainable solutions today, to positively influence tomorrow. Through the investments we make in innovation, product design and flexible operations, we are working with our supply chain to develop personal care ingredients that deliver more benefits, with less impact. This coupled with active participation in regulatory debates, ensures that we are at the forefront of providing answers to the challenges presented.
As such, we have made a bold commitment to be Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030. We will be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients. We will create, make and deliver solutions to tackle some of the biggest challenges the world is facing.
What does this mean for personal care ingredients?
Croda Sustainability Report 2021
Through sustainable innovation, we will continue to reduce our carbon footprint and move away from petrochemical sources, instead increasing our use of bio-based raw materials in our personal care ingredients.
Not only will our bio-based raw materials be traceable and from sustainable sources, but we also aspire to become Net Nature Positive by 2030. Our solutions to reduce the risk of nature loss will shape our customers’ ingredient and supplier selection, and proactively contribute to their sustainability goals.
We will apply our innovation to increase our positive impact on society. We are improving the lives of our own employees and people around the world by developing personal care ingredients to improve health and wellbeing as well as encourage and promote diversity. For example, by 2030, we will protect 60 million people annually from potentially developing skin cancer.
Our social licence to operate is built on trust and is the foundation of everything we do. We consider all stakeholders in our ecosystem and strive to adopt best practices with regard to the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
We will be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients. We will create, make and deliver solutions to tackle some of the biggest challenges the world is facing. By 2030 we will be Climate, Land and People Positive.
