Symrise has been announced as the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainble Development (WBCSD). The flavors and fragrances giant joins nearly 200 companies who are already members.
“In our journey to meet our sustainability targets and developing both our company and the world around them, this collaboration is an important step. We share a commitment to the principles for sustainable development and we are really looking forward to support and inspire the activities of the WBCSD,” said Heinz-Jurgen Bertram, CEO of Symrise.
“The commitment of Symrise to sustainability in its business model, in tandem with WBCSD’s network of forward-thinking businesses, gives this partnership the potential for real impact. I am particularly excited about working with Symrise on our Food Reform for Sustainability and Health program. By committing to sustainability in fragrances and flavorings, Symrise offers true value in our efforts to accelerate transformational change in global agricultural production systems,” added Peter Bakker, CEO and President of WBCSD.
