Firmenich, the world’s largest privately-owned perfume and taste company, has announced that it has been recognized as the Most Sustainable Company in the Flavour and Fragrances Industry by World Finance magazine. Acknowledged as a global leader in sustainability alongside a select group of top companies including Audi, Havas and Logitech, Firmenich was praised for its comprehensive approach to sustainability, underpinned by its work to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The judges applauded the Group’s sustained efforts to tackle climate change with science-based targets, as well as its commitment to operating the most traceable and sustainable value chain, all the way to its global certification by EDGE for gender parity in the workplace.
“This award pays tribute to our unique legacy of responsible business deeply entrenched in our values ever since our creation in 1895,” said Gilbert Ghostine, CEO Firmenich. “It is also great recognition of the passion and hard work of our 8,000 colleagues working as a force for good to do what’s right for our planet, communities and our business every day.”
