Taking care of our environment

We strive for continuous improvement of our environmental performance.  We aim to minimize the environmental impact of our energy consumption, water use, and waste generation.

Key environmental highlights from the 2019 Annual Report

We measure our environmental footprint in terms of our energy use, our water use and our generation of waste. While we consider our impacts principally within our own operations, we are expanding our focus to include sustainable agriculture, particularly for our principal raw material, corn.

Annual Report

Each year we publish in our Annual Report our key performance indicators and how we have performed.

Since 2008 we have reduced:


Reduced energy use per tonne of production by 4.5%


Reduced CO2e emissions per tonne of production by 20.4%


Reduced water use per tonne of production by 1.7%


Reduced waste to landfill per tonne of production by 10.9%


We believe that everyone at Tate & Lyle should be safe, respected and fairly treated.


We want to play a positive role in the communities around us, changing lives for the better through our local and global community progammes and volunteering.


Safety comes first, both for our employees and for everyone who comes to our sites.
