IFF-LMR Naturals has achieved the IMO (Institute for Marketecology) For Life Social Responsibility certification in recognition of the company's sustainability commitments. Factors that impact certification include environmental responsibility, fair working conditions, transparency and community relations.
In addition to LMR receiving this certification, its agricultural and processing partner in Isparta, Turkey, received For Life certification relating to LMR’s Turkish rose supply chain. For Life certification confirms that LMR and its partner in Turkey are committed to acting as responsible employers and promoters of sustainable practices.
“Sustainability is an integral part of our business strategy and a key differentiator for IFF,” said Andreas Fibig, IFF chairman and CEO. “We have made significant progress in executing and expanding our sustainability initiatives during the past year alone, including opening the largest solar field in the flavors and fragrances industry, inclusion in the CDP Climate Disclosure Leadership Index and now, the For Life Social Responsibility certification from IMO.”
Nicolas Mirzayantz, IFF group president fragrances and executive sustainability champion, added, “Rose is at the heart of every perfumer’s catalog and LMR has been working closely with its partner in Turkey to bring the purest, highest quality rose products to perfumers for more than ten years. Our longstanding commitment to strengthening sustainability within our customers’ supply chains was taken to a higher level with the introduction of this third-party certification by IMO.”
