Our Commitment to the Planet

McCormick’s commitments to people and communities naturally and necessarily extend to the planet we all share. We know we have a responsibility as a leader in the global food industry to ensure our investments have tangible benefits, especially for farmers and customers, which we see most clearly in our own supply chain.

From our supply chain to our operations and beyond our organization, we’re taking steps to reduce the environmental impact of our collective operations. Our 2025 targets are aligned with the global UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we’re doubling down on our commitments to climate change solutions, environmental compliance, sustainable sourcing and raw material procurement.

Combating Climate Change

We know the necessary steps to combat climate change, and we’re taking them. By 2050, our goal is to achieve Net Zero. McCormick’s 2030 goals are aligned with the goals set by the Paris Agreement, and our Scope 1 and 2 targets have been approved by SBTi.

Grown For Good

The Grown for Good framework outlines McCormick’s theory of change to drive impact through sustainable sourcing. Unlike other sustainability programs that are generally focused on a single tier in the supply chain (either farm or supplier facility), Grown for Good delivers impact across the entire supply chain, embedding the current processes and procedures around supplier responsibility and ethics into the model, as well as compliance to a third-party audited standard, while aligning with our PLP commitments. To enable us to achieve this, we have also created our own Grown for Good, third-party verified sustainability standard for suppliers.

Investing for the Future

Working towards a sustainable future means making important changes now. We have committed to leveraging the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to align with the Paris Agreements target to limit global warming to 1.5℃ by 2030, with a long-term goal to achieve Net Zero by 2050. Core to this effort are the ambitious Scope 3 emissions targets we’re pursuing in partnership with suppliers and industry peers through our Leadership on Climate Transition program. Additionally, we’re investing in renewable electricity globally, including programs to power 100% of our North American facilities in Maryland, New Jersey and Texas through Project Skipjack and Big Star Solar.
