Symrise AG has successfully passed the UEBT membership assessment and is now expanding its UEBT membership to the entire corporation. For a couple of years, Symrise Madagascar and Brazil have been members of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT).
During this time, they have been successfully implementing a number of comprehensive programmes. They are designed to promote sustainable cultivation and collection practices for natural raw materials and socioeconomic support for local smallholder farmers and collectors.
“We congratulate Symrise on its company-wide commitment to sourcing with respect for people and biodiversity. This is a significant milestone as Symrise becomes the first leading fragrance and flavor house to join UEBT as a whole. UEBT membership means that Symrise has become part of a growing movement of companies committed to improving their impact on biodiversity along their supply chains,” saidRik Kutsch Lojenga, ED of UEBT. As a precondition to becoming a global UEBT member, Symrise has successfully passed a membership assessment where adherence of the company’s biodiversity policy commitments and its ethical sourcing system with the key indicators of the UEBT Ethical BioTrade Standard has been verified. In addition, Symrise has developed work plans to continuously improve its management systems and procedures to promote positive impact for people and biodiversity across its entire business ecosystem.
