How sustainable sourcing brings benefits to brands
Increasingly, consumers want reassurance that the ingredients in the products they delight in are responsibly sourced, with limited impacts to the environment and real benefits to the people that grow them.
Enhancing our traceability capability
To bring consumers quality sensory experiences we provide products that require specific ingredients from all around the world. The journey of these ingredients is important to us, and with programmes and initiatives in place, we create traceability.
With Sedex, an audit for one is an audit for all
Givaudan encourages selected suppliers to register as members of Sedex and to sign-up to its auditing platform, the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA), which is recognised across industries.
Creating an exceptional end-to-end supply chain with raw material sourcing risk management
Whilst we look to source in a sustainable way, risk factors must always be considered. To be forewarned is to be forearmed, which is why the comprehensive Raw Material Risk Management system is an excellent tool for Givaudan.
Engaging across the supply chain with AIM-PROGRESS
In all walks of life, acting responsibly is much more effective as part of a group with shared objectives, than it is on your own. That’s why Givaudan is a member of AIM-PROGRESS, which focuses on supplier compliance to responsible sourcing principles.

The value of a virtuous circle
Innovation grows best in environments that are nurtured and developed. The allure of the essential oil ylang ylang inspired Diptyque to create a new scent: a great example of the ‘virtuous circle’ of responsible practices.
Working on the ground to harvest unique opportunities
Producing a unique and traceable quality of patchouli oil requires the development of good relationships out in the field. This is perfectly illustrated in the creation of a farming partnership in Borneo.
Haiti: sourcing vetiver at its roots
The most exquisite vetiver in the world is grown on the island of Haiti, where economic and natural upheavals in recent years have threatened the livelihoods of many local producers of this highly-prized ingredient. Given this challenging environment, how does Givaudan work to safeguard the supply of vetiver and support the island’s producer communities? By ‘thinking local and acting local’, we found a way to generate new value in the supply, to be shared by all.
Why palm oil is still a burning issue
Palm oil is an environmentally sensitive ingredient. We partner on many fronts to ensure that Givaudan demonstrates responsible sourcing efforts in this area.
