Symrise has become one of the first signatories to the Business and Biodiveristy Pledge, a voluntary commitment to the objectives of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The pledge commits signatories to act sustainably in the accordance with the core goals of the UN CBD, with specific measures ranging from using sustainable raw materials and supply chain management to product development as well as active involvement in regional sustainability programs and acting as an ambassador for biodiversity.

“Symrise has been dedicated to protecting biodiversity and natural habitats for many years,” said Hans Holgar Gliewe, Chief Sustainability Officer at Symrise. “We want to continue to bolster protecting the environment and natural resources in conjunction with our core business, which is why we are among the first to sign the Business and Biodiversity Pledge, whose requirements will increasingly shape the Symrise sustainability strategy.”
