“Our purpose is a compass to guide our choices and set strategic goals. It’s a bold ambition to grow our business while becoming climate-positive. And because we are Givaudan, it’s also emotional: our minds get it, and our hearts embrace it.”

    Every day, our creations inspire emotions and touch millions of lives. By becoming a purpose-led company, we can go even further in making our world a happier, healthier place. Together, we have the potential to increase our positive impact on the world by innovating sustainable solutions while showing our love for nature.

    We have translated our purpose into four focus areas that set out specific, measurable ambitions. We will track our achievements against these ambitions and report on progress on a regular basis.
