Symrise gets awarded for its sustainability efforts

Last updated on 07-Dec-2012 at 12:03 GMT

Symrise AG has been awarded an internationally recognized sustainability rating, due to their compliance with social and environmental standards in corporate management and along the value creation chain.

The rating awarded by agency 'oekom research AG' analyzes sustainability performance at the world’s 101 largest chemical companies and assigns them a grade according to a twelve-part scale from A+ (the highest grade) to D-.

With a B-, Symrise received “Prime Status” as well as a top grade in the chemical sector, meaning the company is qualified for a socially responsible investment (SRI) with only four other companies receiving the same status to date. 

"The rating provides us with additional incentive for improving our performance and systematically addressing areas that have been identified as needing further development,” says CEO Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Bertram.

The agency also highlighted the company's implementation of sustainability in corporate processes; "Symrise has a comprehensive and detailed Code of Conduct as well as sustainable management systems regarding the environment, health and safety throughout the Group. When it came to rating the use of renewable raw materials, Symrise even took first place."
