Symrise has announced that the Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Europe has reaffirmed its positions as one of the most sustainable company’s in Europe.

The ESI Europe rates companies based on four categories, which include internal social policy, environmental policy, external social policy and ethical-economical policy. The index uses data from European sustainability rating agency Vigeo Eiris to evaluate how companies meet criteria for these categories and then assign a ranking. The index is reviewed twice a year based on this data and includes 200 companies from throughout Europe.

“The inclusion of Symrise in the ESI Europe once again is an important confirmation for us that we are on the right path with our corporate sustainability management,” said Hans Holger Gliewe, chief sustainability officer at Symrise. “The aim of sustainable corporate development is an integral part of the Symrise corporate strategy. We work hard on this every day. It is our express goal to continue to be one of the most successful and sustainable manufacturers of fragrances and flavorings in the world.”
