It represents a collective commitment to making a difference for the planet, for people and for our business.
The Charter covers sustainability in every sense, taking a life-cycle approach based on five focus areas—responsible sourcing, reducing our environmental footprint, employee well-being, product safety, transparency and partnerships.
The IFRA-IOFI sustainability charter complements other of ADM’s sustainable development commitments and initiatives, such as its recent pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions an additional 25% by 2035.
The charter aims to help the sectors, as a whole, make further advances by sharing best practices, providing tools and benchmarking progress.
“The IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charter is an important initiative for businesses to collaborate and promote sustainable development across the fragrance and flavor industries and we are delighted to be a part of it,” said Alison Taylor, chief sustainability officer. “At ADM we believe that it is vitally important to plan for generations to come, and this collective commitment will help ensure our industry is making the right steps forward to a brighter and more sustainable future.”
ADM also issued the following statement with regard to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement:
“ADM has been a strong supporter of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and we are extremely pleased to see it go into effect today. USMCA offers a modernized framework for free and fair trade that will enhance market access and benefit farmers, ranchers and agricultural communities across North America. We appreciate the leadership of the Administration and policymakers in Congress who ensured this important agreement was able to go into effect.”
