“We are interested in joining the RCI in order to collaborate on, support and continue to facilitate the transition away from a fossil-based feedstock to renewable carbon sources.”

By driving our 125th legacy as a responsible and inclusive business into this decade, we built our new Pathways to Positive strategic framework around three pillars: Acting on Climate Change, Embracing Nature, and Caring about People, and have set clear and visionary ESG 2030 ambitions to create value for our stakeholders today and for the generations to come. As part of the Group’s strategy, the Ingredients Division is taking its ESG leadership to the next level with the goal of becoming #1 in Renewable Ingredients. We are driving our transformation through four innovative platforms for product delivery.
