Why it is important to put nature & Climate first

Updated: Sep 26, 2022

On #WorldEnvironmentDay2022, and every day, Firmenich put Nature & Climate first.

Firmenich is the world’s largest privately owned fragrance and taste company, a business-to-business enterprise specialized in the research, creation, and manufacture of perfumes, flavors and ingredients. As creators of emotions through the senses of taste and smell, touching over four billion people every day, we strive to provide essential solutions that rise to the challenges of a post-pandemic world, for our customers and all our stakeholders: our people, the planet, and society. We are acutely aware that global action is needed to address climate urgency and preserve the planet’s threatened #biodiversity.

Our ESG strategy 2030 focuses on three streams in which we can make the biggest difference: Acting on Climate Change, Embracing Nature, and Caring about People. Every day, guided by science-based targets, we are acting to minimize our impact on climate and aim to lead our industry towards #NetZero before 2040. Conducting our business in a way that preserves the environment is paramount for Firmenich. We uphold responsible environmental management practices at our facilities worldwide and strive to reach and maintain the highest standards of care.

Since 2020, all Firmenich operations worldwide have been using 100% renewable electricity. Our commitment extends beyond our direct operations to our value chain, through our Responsible Sourcing Policy and Green Procurement Policy. One of the additional ways in which we contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and consumption of water is by contributing to diet transformation and more meat-free alternatives, without compromising taste. We continuously innovate to help create a more sustainable food system for all.

This is but one example of the ways we seek to have a positive impact for the environment. And we value third-party assessment of our performance. In 2021, Firmenich has been awarded a fourth consecutive Triple “A” by CDP -- one of only two companies across all business sectors to achieve this -- for the Group’s leadership in transparency and action on climate change, water security and forestry protection
