Everyone is called upon to constantly monitor the work processes in their own field of activity and responsibility for efficiency, safety and resource conservation, and to develop ideas for improvement.
A global network of more than 120 Sustainability Ambassadors promotes targeted initiatives on energy and waste management, climate, water and environmental protection, and occupational health and safety at the corporate locations.
Managers are responsible for operationalizing sustainability in their teams and laying out clear goals. The global, cross-business Symrise Sustainability Board manages integration of our sustainability principles into the core processes:
Under the chairmanship of the Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO), division and staff department management representatives come together multiple times per year to ensure that sustainability-related topics and the concerns of our important stakeholder groups are considered along the entire value chain. The Sustainability Board sets sustainability objectives, which are directly implemented in the respective divisions.
Direct responsibility for strategy lies with the Chief Executive Officer of Symrise AG, who receives regular reports on the progress of all sustainability activities.
