Symrise has a clearly defined action plan: We want to operate in a climate-positive manner from the year 2030. We will achieve this by increasing energy efficiency at our sites. Already in 2020, more than 68,000 tons of CO2 have been saved in this way. In addition, as an interim target, we want to increase the eco-efficiency of greenhouse gas emissions by 63 percent by 2025 compared to 2016. Since 2020 Symrise is using 100% renewable electricity. In addition, Symrise considers its responsibility over the whole value chain through renewable materials and circularity—ensuring economic, social, and environmental well-being from value proposition to consumption. As a leader in renewable materials, Symrise is accelerating and expanding this approach across all our businesses in the coming years.
We’re proud to be the first company in our industry worldwide to be awarded Science Based Target (SBT) approval for our climate initiatives. By optimizing our value chain, we’re able to reduce emissions, conserve resources and minimize our environmental impact.
We take such improvements very seriously because we want all stakeholders to benefit appropriately from the company’s success. Only together can we minimize risks and, through meaningful action, ensure that our business remains viable in the long term.
Climate-positive starting in 2030 (Scope 1+2) and reducing scope 3 emission by 30% by 2030 based on the year 2020.
Symrise has been committed to climate protection for many years. Because the threats of climate change are becoming ever more obvious. And because we take responsibility for future generations.
We have set ourselves ambitious goals and we report transparently about our climate protection measures and the preliminary results of our efforts.
