Award for commitment to sustainability
Symrise has received an award recognising its commitment to sustainability from DQS. The Holzminden-based company is one of the recipients of the “Sustainability Heroes Awards 2020.”
The German Society for Sustainability, in short DQS, presented these awards during an online conference held from November 2 to November 4, 2020. With this award, DQS recognises companies at the forefront of sustainability.
A total of eight companies received the seal. Symrise convinced the jury with its strategy for environment and society in particular.
In the statement explaining its decision, the jury expressly praised the way in which the Group adopted sustainability as a core element of its strategy and culture. Further, DQS described its motivation for awarding the prize: “The company promotes sustainable development of the entire value chain with ambition and commitment.” The society also stressed that Symrise’s sustainability approach takes the requirements of the company as well as those of employees, customers, the environment and society into account and integrates them into its business activities. “We are proud of this award, which recognizes the core of our commitment to sustainability, our corporate strategy,” said Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Bertram, CEO of Symrise AG. “We have long considered sustainability to be an integral component of our business model. The DQS prize clearly confirms this. We create sustainable, environmental, socially committed conditions along the entire value chain and focus on efficient production.”
