Sustainability Resources


From the regulatory landscape to innovative approaches for decarbonization, these resources provide in-depth analysis and practical guidance for food ingredient suppliers looking to improve their sustainability performance.

Sustainability software provides the most efficient, flexible and cost-effective way to measure, model, reduce and report on ESG metrics. With the right sustainability software, you can automate carbon footprinting, quickly respond to customer requests, create internal communications, and manage external regulatory timelines, all while saving time and money for your team.

California has long been at the forefront of environmental legislation, and that trend continues with the passing of its latest climate disclosure laws. Our comprehensive guide covers the key requirements of SB253 and SB 261, how California's climate laws sit within the larger regulatory landscape and compare to other disclosure mandates, and how ingredient suppliers can prep for compliance.

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) provides a critical framework for companies to align their sustainability goals with scientific insights on climate change. The introduction of FLAG Guidance enhances this framework by offering specific guidelines for setting land-based targets, an area that previously lacked clear direction. It’s especially pertinent for ingredient suppliers, where reducing land sector emissions frequently holds the biggest potential impact.

With customers requesting more and more data from suppliers, reporting-fatigue is impacting companies across sustainability, sales, customer success and accounting teams. Streamlined product carbon footprinting is key for ingredient suppliers who need to report sustainability data or have made public carbon reduction commitments. Listen to our partner Ingredion share how food companies can systematize carbon footprinting and get value-beyond-reporting from their data.
