“We are incredibly proud that our global diversity & belonging program has been endorsed by the Swiss LGBTI Label, in recognition of our concrete action to ensure equity and inclusion for LGBTI people,” said Gilbert Ghostine, CEO of Firmenich.
This is not the company's first recognition of inclusivity. In 2019, Firmenich was awarded the Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Award and in 2018, it was the seventh company worldwide to be globally certified as a gender equal employer by Edge.
