Symrise wants to increase its value and the sustainability of its business activities over the long term. That is why the management and supervisory committees at Symrise AG align their activities with various principles of responsible management. The aims of the German Corporate Governance Code, for instance, serve as the standard for good management in both the Executive and Supervisory Boards. The ten principles of the UN Global Compact, which we signed in 2012, provide additional guidance for our entrepreneurial actions.
In 2013, Symrise became a member of the Sustainable Spices Initiative (SSI). The sustainable cultivation and purchasing of raw materials is a central focus for both Symrise and the SSI. Together with customers, suppliers and NGOs, we want to actively cooperate with the SSI, sharing our knowledge while also gaining new experience.
