CDP has recognized Symrise once again for its exemplary efforts in the protection of water, forests and the climate, granting the company with A ratings in all three categories. The water and forest data submitted by Symrise rank among the best of companies analyzed.
The assessment is based on goals, programs and results related to ecological responsibility. More than 8,400 companies submitted their information to CDP, as well as numerous countries, regions and cities.
Symrise has a long history of employing ambitious measures for the conservation of natural resources. Its contributions toward the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) play a decisive role in this context.
In concert with the content of SDG 6, Symrise considers the availability of fresh, high-quality water to be absolutely essential for its activities. The company is dedicated to using water efficiently and reducing wastewater volumes and emissions at all its sites worldwide.
Also, Symrise aims to reduce both chemical oxygen demand in water and sensitive waste by 60% as compared with 2010 levels.
These comprehensive measures have now been recognized by CDP every year since 2016. Symrise ranks among the leading companies worldwide in matters of environmental conservation.
“Sustainable innovations are a fundamental part of our sustainability strategy,” Symrise CEO Heinz-Jürgen Bertram, Ph.D., said. “We emphasize cutting-edge technologies so we can manufacture in a way that protects water resources and forests. In doing so, we also assume responsibility for future generations. Earning top ratings from CDP motivates us to maintain this course.”
