Every advance we make toward industry sustainability is a step closer to a safer and healthier future for Mother Earth. McCormick & Company has announced that its emission reduction targets have been officially approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and are consistent with levels required to meet the goals set by the Paris Agreement.

Lawrence Kurzius, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, McCormick & Company“McCormick is delivering against our ambitious Purpose-led Performance agenda using science-based targets to reduce our impact on the planet we all share,” said Lawrence Kurzius, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for McCormick. “As a leader in the flavor industry, we embrace the unique role we play in creating a sustainable future for generations to come.”

According to a recent press release, the specialty provider achieved its 2025 greenhouse gas commitments four years early for scopes 1 and 2, and recently raised the ambition of its goals to reduce absolute scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions by 42 percent by 2030.
