SDG Goal

Gilles Andrier, Chief Executive Officer

Pursuing bold and ambitious goals

We reached an important crossroads in 2019, while navigating an external environment that offers new opportunities. Powered by our new Company purpose “Creating for happier, healthier lives with love for nature. Let’s imagine together”, we are pursuing bold and ambitious goals.

We have set out to be a climate-positive business before 2050. Signing the UN Pledge to align GHG emission targets to limit global warming at 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels is a milestone on our journey. These actions build on a long-standing commitment to play our part in moving the global sustainability agenda forward. Recognition for this effort by organisations such as EcoVadis and CDP reinforces our confidence and motivation.

In the meantime, our acquisition strategy is an important part of our future success. It supports the pursuit of another purpose ambition to double our business through creations that contribute to happier, healthier lives by 2030.

Our people drive our success. We want to be a ‘great place to work’ and continue to build an inclusive culture where all can grow and succeed. 

Our new purpose and supporting goals will drive sustainable, long-term performance, while improving happiness and health for people and nature. It is our continued commitment to our customers, our people, society and the planet.

Chief Executive Officer
