Making every drop count

How to produce the same high-quality ingredients for flavours and fragrances while using less water? A look at some of the innovative ways our sites are making every drop count.

The protein revolution

After water, protein is the most important macro-nutrient on earth for human existence and health. Givaudan is now applying its holistic expertise, and partnering with external experts in this field, to create delicious high protein products that may just change the future food landscape.

Tougher regulations: obligation or opportunity?

An ever-changing regulatory landscape is driving manufacturers to use more environmentally friendly ingredients, by way of changing materials or formulations. The challenge is how to react quickly to these new legislations and how to design replacements – whilst maintaining business as usual for customers.

Early testing for a superior innovation pipeline

Innovations that enable the early testing of molecules have a wide range of benefits for customers, consumers and the environment.

Green chemistry in action

In recent years, the principles of green chemistry, and in particular the emerging field of bioscience research, have been actively applied as a key approach to sustainable innovation at Givaudan.

Adventure and exploration around the globe

From the 1700s, when tall ships carried perfumes and oils across the oceans, to the 1930s and 40s, when famed researcher Ernest Guenther travelled the world in search of the best sources of essential oils, adventure and exploration has been deep in Givaudan’s roots.

Making a positive difference by renewed eco-efficiency commitments

We have been tackling our eco-efficiency targets to limit the impact of our activities on the environment for some time, and now we are setting more ambitious goals for 2020.

Due to the ever-increasing need for sustainable products, Givaudan is faced with challenges that come with a constantly shifting global regulatory landscape.

Connect, chat and change at key events

Givaudan’s presentations at the World Perfumery Congress and the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit in 2014 spoke of a future with challenges, but one where our industry is coming up roses. Here we explain why attending these events is so important.

Doing more to impact less

2014 saw another strong set of results against our 2020 eco-efficiency targets. When Givaudan began its sustainability journey at the turn of the century, eco-efficiency was central to our efforts. As global awareness around climate change passed from scientific communities into popular consciousness, we recognised the part we had to play in minimising the effects of CO2 emissions.
