The race to offer consumers more sustainable options and meet corporate sustainability goals has never been more intense. Responsible sourcing, healthy eating and simple labels are increasingly important to consumers. But designing great-tasting products with consumer-preferred, sustainable ingredients requires a trusted sourcing partner with tested experience.
We believe that sustainability is a shared responsibility and an opportunity to collaborate with our stakeholders to promote a more sustainable planet. This thinking is underscored in our 2030 All Life plan — to bring together the potential of people, nature and technology to make all life better. This strategy allows us to further align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while driving continuous innovation in our sustainability efforts.
The world around us continues to change and evolve — find out how Ingredion's innovative spirit has helped us rise to the growing challenges of sustainability.
At Ingredion, we approach our sustainability program from three angles: Everyday Life, Planet Life and Connected Life.
Everyday Life focuses on human beings and making sure our processes and innovations don’t come at the expense of product and people safety, human rights and diversity, equity and inclusion. Planet Life is focused on our sourcing, processing and operations as they relate to environmental impact and biodiversity. Connected Life is concerned with sustainable and regenerative agriculture, food security and community impact.
We continuously work to advance the progress we make through these three lenses, both for our own sustainability goals and to help our customers meet theirs. Here are just a few examples of our recent efforts and accomplishments in each of the key areas. See the full report for more details.
