Frank Clyburn, IFF CEO, said, “At IFF, we’re taking a holistic approach to creating a better world by leveraging our business, performance and partners. Since the launch of our first sustainability program in 2010, we’ve made tremendous progress. To continue driving results, we’re challenging our teams to be accountable, to collaborate across divisions, and to execute on our ESG+ strategy.”
