Making an impact

There's no denying it. The industries we serve have a significant impact on the environment. And as a business that takes its responsibilities seriously, we are owning the part we play in this. We are working hard to create extracts and ingredients people love, in such a way that protects people, and our planet.

We're proud to highlight the progress we've made during the past financial year

Our approach

For us it is essential Sustainability is embedded within our business; ensuring we work collectively to tackle the global challenges we face in a thoughtful and impact-driven way.

We have made real strides in our approach to sustainability, initially working with a team of highly experienced consultants to aid in the development of a global sustainability strategy, more recently recruiting dedicated internal resource, focused on driving the strategy implementation and development across the business.

The crusade to become a more sustainable organisation permeates all key decision making. From the future direction of the company, how we drive transparency and positive change across our global supply chains, down to the values our people embrace, sustainability is integral and shapes the way in which our business is run.

Our Pillars

People - Planet - Performance

Our work has involved a thorough consultation with our key stakeholders to determine the issues most material to them. This has shaped our strategic priorities and feature under three key pillars, to ensure clarity and focus.


Supporting our people, communities and customers

Our culture is integral to our success, and we are proud of all we do to nurture our people, wherever they work for us in the world. Whether it's offering true flexible working from the day they join us, a job where they feel safe, or ensuring they are seen, heard, and valued by their colleagues. Our community are provided the opportunity to develop, a competitive salary and a generous benefits package; we believe in looking after our people in every way we can.

Our ED&I allies network of global employees, representing different diverse groups help drive our focus in this important area, to ensure we create a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment where we embrace our distinctions.

We endeavour to make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate, supporting the future generation through our relationships with local schools and colleges, but also championing local good causes selected by our employees, many of which now benefit from our employee volunteering scheme.

Our responsible and sustainable sourcing policy also strives to ensure those suppliers we buy from all over the world look after their people and the communities they reach too.

Acting on climate change

As a natural extracts and ingredients manufacturer, we are fully aware of the impact climate change has on the sustainability of the raw materials we process. We manage our global energy and fuel consumption, as well as waste processing, with this very much in mind. We are proud to report zero waste to landfill and 100% renewable electricity usage at our UK facility and have committed to a number of energy saving projects at our US facility supporting our pathway to net zero.

Understanding the true extent of our impact on the environment is a significant undertaking, but one which we are proactively tackling in all territories. We measure and report our Scope 1,2 and 3 emissions and have set targets to reduce our scope 1 & 2 Co2 emissions by 10% by 2025 at our US facility.

The SBTi have validated our modelling and near-term target of 42% reduction in scope 1&2 by 2030, across the group as we continue to focus on mapping our pathway to Net Zero.

We assess the potential impacts of climate change on our business, using the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure. Learn more about our pathway to Net Zero and TCFD in our ‘planet’ section of our sustainability report.

Acting on climate change also drives us to produce, store, transport and dispose of business waste responsibly, increasingly applying a circular approach. See the progress we’ve made with our waste management, in our ‘planet’ section of our
sustainability report on pages 27-34.

Strong governance and sustainable sourcing

Our ESG governance structure, inclusive of an ESG Board Advisory Panel, now sees over twenty people across the business vertically, involved in shaping and delivering our ESG priorities, ensuring sustainability is embedded into our business strategy from design to execution so that we continue to drive positive change for both people and our planet. To further demonstrate how seriously the business considers ESG at least 20% of Executive Director bonus scheme is also subject to ESG related non-financial objectives.

Learn more about the structure with our TCFD disclosure in our sustainability report on pages 36-43.

The integrity of our products starts with the ingredients we source. We are committed to sourcing in line with our responsible and sustainable sourcing policy. This provides us with the transparency we need, whilst also providing the necessary level of reassurance for our customers, and the increasingly conscious consumer. The implementation of this policy is supported with a number of stretching KPI’s to ensure continuous improvement in the sustainability of our supply chain, working hard to engage our supply chain to support both people and planet. See more about our progress in our sustainability report on pages 47-49.
