IFF recognised for its commitment to Climate Change
IFF has been recognized on CDP’s prestigious A-List for Climate Change for the fifth consecutive year. CDP, an international not-for-profit, assesses companies on the comprehensiveness of their disclosure, their awareness and management of environmental risks and their demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets. IFF has been proactive when it comes to environmental issues. For example, when IFF learned that the land was compromised, it took steps to excavate and cap the site, which was then given new life through soil remediation and the installation of over 440,000 square feet of solar panels. The array is expected to generate over nine million kilowatt-hours annually, powering IFF’s R&D facility and returning any excess energy to the grid. In addition, IFF installed a series of nesting platforms to support the conservation of ospreys, a North American raptor species challenged by environmental changes. IFF’s latest solar field builds on a series of steps the Company has taken to cut its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, mitigate climate risks and contribute to the low-carbon economy. These actions are guided by IFF’s science-based target of reducing its absolute GHG emissions by 30% below 2015 levels by 2025. To support wider industry action, IFF, along with other leading companies, signed the United Nation’s ‘Business Ambition for 1.5°C – Our Only Future‘ pledge, a campaign to put more aggressive science-based goals into action to help limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
