At CPL we care about future generations, and are committed to preserving our planet’s resources. We all need to do whatever we can to look after our planet and its resources, which is why CPL’s sustainability program is incredibly important to the company.- Global Technical Director, Charlotte Purcell
At CPL Aromas, we embrace our responsibility to integrate sustainability into every aspect of our business.
We want to meet the needs of today, without compromising on the needs of tomorrow. With this in mind, we’ve launched a new sustainability vision and strategy, to lead positive, transformational change.
In developing our sustainability strategy, we use the “circular economy” model. This means our aim is to maximise the efficacy of resources by increasing efficiency, keeping resources in use for as long as possible, and recover and regenerate materials to reduce waste.
We don’t want our sustainability efforts to be just a ‘green tick’ on the proverbial corporate agenda; something to think of once a year and then discard. We are convinced, now more than ever, that CPL’s purpose is to play our part to change the world for good.- CEO, Chris Pickthall
Our sustainability vision
Our four pillar approach to sustainability.
Our sustainability approach covers all aspects of our business, which is why we’ve designed our four pillars: environment, innovation, people, and sourcing.
The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call for governments, civil society, businesses, and the general public to act to end poverty, fight inequality, and tackle climate change.
The goals are interwoven and connected, but we have focused our business efforts on those where we can have the most impact.
We put together annual Sustainability Reports, developed in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) core models.
