“Companies’ emissions don't end at the factory door. CDP data shows a company's supply chain emissions are, on average, over 11.4 times greater than its direct emissions. Meaningful corporate climate action means engaging with suppliers to reduce emissions across the value chain,” said Sonya Bhonsle, global head of value chains, CDP. “We congratulate Firmenich for making it on to the CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. This demonstrates that they are setting the pace in environmental management and their commitment to reduce emissions and lower environmental risks across their supply chain.”

“We were the first perfume and taste company to engage with our suppliers through CDP when we started disclosing our environmental performance more than 10 years ago,” said Neil McFarlane, senior VP quality, health, safety, security and environment, Firmenich. “As we power towards carbon neutrality in our direct operations by 2025, we are very proud of this achievement highlighting the incredible work done by our environmental and procurement teams and hope it will inspire other companies to develop their own path towards zero impact.”
