Because we care

"Our positive impact on the lives we touch extends from our colleagues to the business partners we serve and to the communities where we operate."

As a key driver for our business success, sustainability forms an integral part of our strategic planning. 

Our ESG proposition

Sustainability is embedded in our operations and the mindsets of our employees through our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) proposition, which encompasses a solid corporate governance foundation, and comprehensive programs to work on improvements in the environment and social context in which we operate.

Our scope

Sustainability drives our daily operations. We actively look for opportunities to work in a more environmentally conscious way. Whether it is by reducing energy consumption, or sourcing renewables at our sites, or lowering the environmental footprint in our product portfolio by choosing bio-based products such as green solvents — our goal is to be a responsible partner, employer and operator.

Beyond the environmental impacts we can influence, we also look at how we can have a positive impact on the society, the lives we touch, from the colleagues we work with and the business partners we serve, to the communities where we operate. This is reflected in our DEI Policy, for instance, which encapsulates our commitment to creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive working environment for all.


Additionally, we make sure that our solutions are supported by a strong foundation of governance comprising policies, processes and training to ensure a compliant and transparent business environment.  


Our commitment to our ESG principles is also visible through our participation in the EcoVadis Sustainability Assessments, where we are evaluated at both group and entity level. Currently, we have a GOLD rating at a group level and our local entities – Panama, USA, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, Ingredients Germany and Mr. Malt® - P.A.B. S.r.l., Brazil – have PLATINUM!

Our support of the UN SDG goals

Our ESG proposition contributes to five of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the United Nations. We aim to reconcile financial stability with social and environmental sustainability and create enduring value for all stakeholders while we contribute to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth), SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), SDG 12 (Responsible consumption and production) and SDG 13 (Climate action).
