How McCormick Is Committing to Sustainability

April 29, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

In October 2018, McCormick built on its original goals and announced that 100 percent of the company’s plastic packaging would be reusable, recyclable or able to be repurposed by 2025. The move is part of McCormick’s continuous focus on advancing sustainability and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by working to eliminate single-use plastics, adopting renewable materials, and encouraging composting. This new commitment strengthened McCormick’s existing 2025 packaging goals, which included reducing the company’s packaging carbon footprint by 25 percent and eliminating BPA and PVC from all primary and secondary packaging materials.

EcoVadis's insight:

Companies worldwide are increasingly aware of sustainability’s importance, and some leading firms have already integrated sustainability into their everyday business processes. Many industries are drawing up plans to phase out single-use plastics, use more recycled plastic in their packaging and work on more effective recycling. McCormick is one of the many companies that are working towards the reduction of plastic usage.
