IFF has had its membership application for Together for Sustainability (TfS) accepted, saying that it is the first flavours and fragrances company to join TfS and entering into a growing consortium of multi-national companies committed to ensuring sustainable practices throughout the supply chain.

Established in 2011, the TfS initiative has brought together 18 international chemical companies to date. Constantly expanding, the organization is focused on implementing a standardized global supplier engagement program for responsible procurement of goods and services in the chemical industry and improving sustainability practices of suppliers.

“The goals of TfS are perfectly aligned with IFF’s Vision 2020 business strategy,” said Francisco Fortanet, Executive Vice President, Global Operations. “This endeavor complements our past efforts and works to solidify our future efficiency goals. With this collaboration, we will help to create an ecosystem of customers, suppliers and partners who are committed to transparency and accountability.”

“We look forward to working with TfS to help meet the increasing social and environmental expectations of our global customers and consumers,” said Kip Cleverley, Director, Global Sustainability. “We are always exploring opportunities to collaborate and create a more sustainable future for all.”
