ED&I Targets and Commitments

We are committed to making equity, diversity and inclusion a business-wide priority. These new targets and actionable commitments are part of our expanded ED&I strategy, and are built from four pillars: Systems, Talent, Culture, and Society.

Equity, diversity and inclusion is a business-wide priority for Tate & Lyle, and I’m delighted we are launching a set of clear targets and actionable commitments in this area. I firmly believe that equity, diversity and inclusion are accelerators for growth and a key element of being a purpose-led company.

Our equity, diversity & inclusion targets and commitments

Integrate equity, diversity and inclusion into core organisational structure, policies and practices to promote equitable advancement, retention and reward:

  • EDI systems
    By 2023, 50 high potential employees from under-represented groups will be sponsored for advancement
  • By 2025, in each region, Tate & Lyle will achieve parity in attrition rates and employee engagement scores on equity, diversity and inclusion questions between minority and majority groups

Ensure the diversity of the workforce reflects the local communities the business serves:

    By 2025, the business will achieve gender parity in leadership and management roles
  • By 2030, teams at all levels will be representative of their local communities

Educate all to achieve the equity, diversity and inclusion competence needed to create and sustain an inclusive culture:

  • EDI culture
    By 2022, 10% of Employee Resource Group (ERG) leaders’ paid time will be spent on ERG work
  • By 2025, employees, managers and leadership will spend 10, 15 and 20 hours each respectively on equity, diversity, and inclusion training

Listen to, speak to and serve society by delivering progress on equity, diversity and inclusion for and with Tate and Lyle’s customers, communities and suppliers:

  • EDI society
    By 2030, employees will have spent 50,000 hours volunteering for projects aligned with our purpose and the UN SDGs, with an ambition to reach 20,000 hours by 2025
