The EcoIngredient Compass analyzes and scores an ingredient in the following three areas: renewable carbon; biodegradability and green chemistry. Firmenich is including these three parameters in its ingredients sales catalogue for all of its fragrance molecules.
With the creation of EcoIngredient Compass, that focuses on sustainability and transparency, the group is reinforcing its leadership in white biotechnology and green chemistry—the development and production of ingredients with minimal impact on nature and people.
“Driven by the growing trend for more sustainable lifestyles, consumers are demanding to know what is inside their product,” said Julien Firmenich, VP product strategy and promotion. “EcoIngredient Compass is a breakthrough in ingredients transparency, as it gives our customers the sustainability information that they need to shape products that have a lasting positive impact.”
