As part of our sustainability vision, ICL continues to put significant efforts toward achieving a sustainable present and future. The ICL 2020 Corporate Responsibility (CSR) Report covers our "Business Culture of Leadership" strategy and shares a detailed view of our goals, performance and practices related to our ESG commitment.
ICL's on-line 2020 CSR web-report is now live and includes over 140 topic-specific web pages and also contains interactive features, including short films and dynamic data charts, which provide an in-depth review of our advanced sustainability practices.
The report touches on a wide variety of areas, including our Environmental management and performance, top-tier proactive safety measures, Employer of Choice, Sustainable Solutions, Innovation, and Corporate Governance Practices. The report also details all aspects of ICL's response to the challenges of the COVID-19 Crisis.
Our CSR report exhibits our contribution to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), offering once again an innovative SDG search engine — allowing stakeholders to quickly find extensive details on the company’s significant contribution to each specific SDG, including: Zero Hunger, Good Health and Wellbeing, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, Responsible Consumption, Climate Action and others.
ICL's vision includes ambitious sustainability goals aimed at addressing the major challenges facing society and the global environment. In addition to our commitment to become carbon neutral by 2050, we expect to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030, to increase our share of renewable energy consumption to 50% by 2040, and to increase our circular economy and water savings impact by an additional 3% annually. We also plan to support the communities where we operate by contributing 1% of pre-tax income and by promoting personal environmental responsibility and volunteering among our employees.
This sustainability vision, along with our advanced sustainability practices and the innovative on-line CSR reporting, place our Company as a leader amongst Israeli and global industry. This leading position is evident in ICL's continued high scores and rankings in sustainability indexes such as Bloomberg, FTSE, CDP, Maala, Ecovadis and others.
We invite you to read the report and also share it with your family, friends, suppliers, customers and partners.
