McCormick has been awarded the inaugural 2021 Terra Carta Seal, which recognizes private sector companies that are leading their peers in creating genuinely sustainable markets. The prestigious Terra Carta Seal was launched in January 2021 by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales through the Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI). McCormick is one of only 44 companies selected as the first recipients of the official Terra Carta Seal.
The Terra Carta Seal acknowledges each industry faces unique challenges in its transition to a sustainable future, and they are all at different stages of their journey. The seal has been awarded to companies that hold a leadership position within their industry and have credible transition roadmaps underpinned by globally recognized, scientific metrics for achieving net zero by 2050 or earlier.

His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales states, “The Terra Carta Seal recognizes those organizations which have made a serious commitment to a future that is much more sustainable, and puts nature, people, and the planet at the heart of the economy. We all need to make changes if we are to preserve the planet for our children and grandchildren and these businesses have pledged to make it easier for us all to do so.”
Malcolm Swift, president, global flavour solutions, EMEA, and chief administrative officer, says, “I am honored to accept this award on behalf of McCormick. We are delighted to be recognized as a global leader for our ongoing sustainability journey. We are driving transformation across the industry with new innovative sustainability initiatives like our first-of-its-kind Grown for Good standard. We are leading the way with our commitment to using science-based targets across all scopes to validate our progress towards limiting climate change to 1.5°C as part of our long-term commitment to achieve Net Zero by 2050. Creating a sustainable future is at the heart of our Purpose-led Performance agenda. We are committed to doing what's right for our people, the communities where we live work and source and the planet we share.”
