- Strengthening of IFF’s responsible sourcing program and natural ingredient supply chains through new certifications, as well as by accelerating industry-leading blockchain technology as a tool for ensuring ingredient traceability
- Achieving an industry breakthrough in circular design and transparency with Henry Rose, a line of fine fragrances founded by actress Michelle Pfeiffer and created to the strictest environmental standards as defined by the Environmental Working Group and the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute
- External recognitions and certifications for IFF’s diversity & inclusion leadership, such as DiversityInc., Human Rights Campaign, EDGE, and the signing of the U.N. Global LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business and the U.N. Women’s Empowerment Principles
