WESTCHESTER, Ill., February 6, 2019 – Ingredion (NYSE: INGR), a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, has been named to CDP's Supplier Engagement leader board for 2019. The Company is among the three percent of organizations to be awarded a position on the leader board for its work to reduce emissions and lower climate-related risks in the supply chain in the past reporting year.
"We're proud to be recognized for our work to lower our carbon footprint and reduce climate-change factors," said Ron McCrimmond, vice president of environment, health, safety and security. "This recognition is a reflection of the actions and innovative efforts of our supply chain to do our part to improve the world we all share."
"In the ten years that we have been working with purchasing organizations we have seen a fundamental shift in expectations around business action on sustainability," commented Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Supply Chain at CDP. "If suppliers continue to cascade good practices further down the supply chain, this has the potential to play a huge role in the rapid transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy."
