Symrise among globally first 100 SBT-certified companies

Symrise is one of three German companies to meet the ambitious targets of the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative. The number of companies with scientifically recognized climate targets exceeded 100 for the first time in April 2018.  

The global SBT certifies the climate targets of interested market participants according to whether they are in line with current research and are working to reduce CO2 emissions on par with the standards of the Paris Climate Agreement. Symrise, the globally active manufacturer of fragrances and flavorings, is one of twelve German companies that have participated so far.

To be approved, interested parties must show that their goals correspond to the current state of research. They must also realize the minimum savings necessary (relative to their sector and size) to meet the global objectives of the Paris Agreement. The initiative is supported by the WWF, the UN Global Compact, the Carbon Disclosure Project and the World Resource Institute – an organization that has been dedicated to environmental protection and resource conservation for more than 30 years.
