CPL Aromas has published its 2019 sustainability report, the summarised 2019 impact report and has signed the IFRA sustainability charter.
CPL’s achievements during 2019 related to the four focus areas: protecting the environment, caring for people, delivering responsible innovations and committing to ethical sourcing.
Since CPL’s first sustainability report, published in 2019, the company’s renewable energy consumption has grown 12%; it made its biggest ever contribution to CAFOD; and it obtained Ecovadis gold certification.
CPL Aromas’ CEO, Chris Pickthall, said: “we don’t want our sustainability efforts to be just a ‘green tick’ on the proverbial corporate agenda, something to think of once a year and then discard. We are convinced, now more than ever, that CPL Aromas’ purpose is to change the world for good”.
Charlotte Purcell, Group Technical Director in charge of driving sustainability in CPL, said “2019 saw great progress towards our sustainability goals, yet we recognise that we need to do more. That’s why our report highlights our key achievements, areas of improvement and sets out our key focuses for the year ahead.”.
In line with this renewed focus, CPL is proud to announce it’s become one of the signatories of the IFRA sustainability charter, the fragrance governing body’s document to oversee the shift of the industry toward a better future.
