Symrise has been awarded Gold status by EcoVadis for its responsible corporate business practices for the second year in a row.
The overall 68-point rating puts the German flavors and fragrances producer in the top 2.79 percent of manufacturers of chemical raw materials in terms of ecological, social and ethical sustainability. Further, Symrise achieved a mark of 80 in the sub-area of environment and is ranked among the top 0.7 percent of firms in terms of sustainability in the supply chain.
“We are very happy with our excellent results,” said Helmut Frieden, Vice President Corporate Sustainability at Symrise. “On the one hand, it is encouraging recognition from outside the company for our efforts to become more sustainable. On the other hand, it is also important for the success of the company since strategically significant customers require a CSR rating of at least 65 points in order to do business together.”
