Sustainability in the Personal Care industry

We have made a bold Commitment to be Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030. By being the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients, we will provide solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges while helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals.

In these times of increasing environmental, social and economic uncertainty, we are determined to continue playing our part in meeting the global challenges and to make a positive impact. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are beginning to focus global efforts on positive change; for us at Croda they have reinforced our drive to provide solutions that support sustainable development as a moral and business imperative. We shall continue to thrive, not simply improving our own economic, social and environmental performance, but also actively creating positive change.

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 products 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.
