Croda continues its efforts to achieve its goal of saving more land than used, while increasing the efficiency of agricultural land use and protecting biodiversity.
Croda recently announced, as part of its 2021 Sustainability Report, that it has saved 33,734 hectares of land per year more than its 2019 base year. The company says it is on track to meet its 2030 goal of saving at least 200,000 hectares of land per year more than in 2019. The trees that are planted in the name of the Purposeful Beauty initiative will help reforest land damaged by wildfires, support biodiversity habitat and create a positive impact for generations to come.
