IFCO pioneered a circular model almost 30 years ago. Since then, our share and reuse approach has evolved from being an interesting and revolutionary idea to a mainstream global solution for shipping fresh food sustainably.
IFCO is committed to becoming a global leader in sustainability, making a positive impact on the planet and society. We are extremely proud to share our 2025 ESG strategy, which focuses on our key material issues and contributes to our purpose to make the world’s fresh grocery supply chains sustainable.
We strive for excellence and transparency across our global operations by placing rigorous Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) responsibilities at the center of our business.
Our ESG report communicates our progress on key ESG issues to our stakeholders, including our customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers and the community.
Eliminating packaging and food waste in the fresh grocery supply chain, enhancing efficiencies across the value chain and sharing the resulting long-term value with all our stakeholders.
As part of our commitment to transparency, we have made the conscious decision to report according to the requirements of leading standards: the Core Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). In 2021, IFCO committed to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have also committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) so that we can objectively track the progress towards our emissions targets.
