Tomorrow’s ingredients made today
At Givaudan, our commitment to a sustainable future is rooted in ‘A Sense of Tomorrow’, our company-wide sustainability approach. This is a set of fundamental principles that extends across everything we do, meaning that all our fragrance and flavour development are designed with the future in mind.
Improving peoples’ daily lives
In Fragrances, we look for innovative ways to improve peoples’ daily lives while minimising the impact on the environment.
Consumers want to look good and feel good, and seek products promoting health and well-being as well as beauty. They seek fresh scents that can banish bad odours in clothing and in the environment and boost self-confidence, enabling social inclusivity – they want fragrances that positively influence how they feel. They also seek sustainable products that are produced in ways that respect the environment.
Sustainable novel molecules
That’s why our Science and Technology teams take extra care when developing novel molecules; Givaudan’s proprietary FiveCarbon Path™ navigates our drive to leverage new sustainable chemistry and biotechnology methods to deliver innovative carbon efficient molecules. And with rapidly changing consumer preferences, Givaudan’s agility is helping our customers to go to market even faster with our Safe by Design™ approach - it’s how we accelerate molecule research more efficiently while demonstrating our commitment to using non-invasive test methods to screen for safety early in the development phase.
Finding new ways to formulate, research and source a sustainable supply of relevant and creative fragrance ingredients has propelled Givaudan to leading-edge breakthrough innovations. This quest has been a driving force behind our Science and Technology capabilities, resulting in some recent ground-breaking achievements:
As we strive to craft the most amazing smelling perfumes for people everywhere to enjoy, we are equally committed to creating them in a responsible manner that allows us to better meet our customers’ needs and ultimately, transform challenges into new possibilities for a better and safer tomorrow.
