ACI member sustainability News: Colgate-Palmolive, Corbion, IFF


The ACI Member Sustainability Showcase is our one-stop online information source for cleaning product industry sustainability updates. It is a portal to our member companies’ best sustainability content, including sustainability reports, webpages, press releases, and other initiatives.

ACI is enthusiastic about every opportunity to celebrate and promote the sustainability success stories of all our member companies. With countless efforts underway in companies large and small, we believe it is important to support and promote their activities year-round.

In the news this week:

To help shed light on global water shortages, Colgate-Palmolive Company aired its award winning ‘Save Water’ communication on World Water Day in over 70 countries as part of the company’s global efforts to expand its #EveryDropCounts campaign. Originally developed in 2014 to support Colgate’s global sustainability commitment to "Making Every Drop of Water Count," the video communication illustrates how a seemingly small act, like turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth, can make a big difference.

Corbion released in 2016 Annual Report which shared how their "Disciplined Value Creation" strategy is creating value for all stakeholders, balancing people, planet, and profit along our value chain. The report also showcases Corbion’s key sustainability initiatives: responsible sourcing, resource-efficient operations, and sustainable solution, and new corresponding 2020 targets.

IFF released its 2016 Sustainability Report, Circular by Design, which demonstrates their commitment to creating a more sustainable and healthy future. The new sustainability vision and strategy, centered on the concept of a circular economy, is also aligned with several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
