To help ensure the safety of our products, all of our raw materials are part of a detailed traceability program and we have robust product, environmental, and raw material screening programs that are designed to exceed industry standards. We recognize that Sensient is just one part of the sustainability supply chain. We regularly collaborate with our customers to understand and meet their expectations, as well as industry standards, related to product delivery and quality.
The following strategic initiatives will enable us to reach our emission reductions goals by 2035, paving the way for zero CO2 emissions by 2050:
Reduce carbon intensity of scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 (Baseline 2020)
- Renewable energy sources
- Optimization audits
- More efficient equipment
2. Sustainable Product Design:
Incorporate a sustainable design principles checklist into 100% of innovation projects by 2024
- Train R&D on sustainability
- Design products with smaller environmental footprints
We know that none of this will be easy, but we face this challenge with a proactive mindset. We will make investments in energy-efficient and electrified production equipment, adapt our manufacturing processes, and continue to look for technologies that are not currently viable to scale or do not yet exist. We will source as much power from sustainable sources as is financially and physically feasible.
