Symrise Achieves Sustainability Goal Prior to 2030 Deadline

Symrise holds sustainability as a high priority in its practices.

The international fragrance and flavoring manufacturer has already achieved the sustainability goal it set for 2030 by reducing its carbon emissions by 17.5 percent.

“The climate strategy is of highest importance to Symrise,” said Hans Holger Gliewe, chief sustainability officer at Symrise. “[The strategy] will help develop all future Symrise investments for new facilities with cutting-edge environmental technology.”

The manufacturer’s climate strategy has also been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative, a partnership between the Carbon Disclosure Project, the U.N. Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and the World Wide Fund for Nature. The initiative works in accordance with the Paris Agreement to ensure companies can increase their corporate climate protection and counteract climate change through their practices.

“It is encouraging to see companies such as Symrise set industry leading targets to cut emissions,” said Lila Karbassi, chief of programmes at the U.N. Global Compact. “By ensuring targets are aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement, Symrise is demonstrating to investors, customers and policymakers that they are preparing to transition to a low-carbon economy while future-proofing growth.”
