Biodiversity pledge signed

Symrise is one of the first signatories to the Business and Biodiversity Pledge, a voluntary commitment to the objectives of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

Intact ecosystems and rich biodiversity are important sources of innovation and inspiration, making it the natural capital for Symrise. By signing the Business and Biodiversity Pledge, Symrise is underscoring its responsibility to protect and preserve this natural capital for current and future generations. Symrise, as an active player in the FMCG sector, is affected both directly and indirectly by global challenges such as the increasing loss of biodiversity. At the same time, the Symrise business model is connected to potential effects on species and ecosystems, which the company is addressing systematically through its corporate biodiversity management. 

Specific measures for implementing its biodiversity agenda range from sustainable raw materials and supply chain management to product development. It also includes direct involvement locally, such as in the Amazon region of Brazil or in Madagascar. 

“Symrise has been dedicated to protecting biodiversity and natural habitats for many years,” said Hans Holger Gliewe, chief sustainability officer at Symrise. “We want to continue to bolster protecting the environment and natural resources in conjunction with our core business, which is why we are among the first to sign the ‘Business and Biodiversity Pledge’, whose requirements will increasingly shape the Symrise sustainability strategy.”
