Tate & Lyle PLC, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, underlined its commitment to its purpose of Improving Lives for Generations with the publication of a new booklet entitled ‘Improving Lives for Generations: Introducing our Purpose.’
The interactive booklet, available in electronic format on Tate & Lyle’s website, describes Tate & Lyle’s purpose, what it means to its employees and how it’s being lived across the organization every day. It also includes the ambitious purpose commitments and targets for the next 10 years announced in May 2020.
As explained in the booklet, Tate & Lyle’s purpose of Improving Lives for Generations is lived through three pillars – Supporting Healthy Living, Building Thriving Communities and Caring for our Planet. Commitments and targets for each pillar over the next 10 years include: helping to improve the lives of over 250,000 people by 2025 by supporting programs that promote healthier lifestyles and activities; providing over 3 million nutritious meals for people in need by 2025; and delivering a 30% absolute reduction in Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Tate & Lyle’s Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets for 2030 are approved as science-based by the Science Based Targets initiative, meaning they are in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
Tate & Lyle will report on the first year of progress against its purpose commitments and targets in 2021.
