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.

A love affair with citrus: An inspiring consumer trend
Consumers love citrus. From oranges and lemons to grapefruit and limes, citrus is used every day in juices, fizzy drinks, tea and cooking. It is truly a global flavour favourite.
Mapping the regulatory landscape for sourcing
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.
Healthier choices, rich in possibilities
Health and wellness remains a key pillar of Givaudan’s corporate strategy, and lies at the heart of our sustainability efforts. 2014 saw Givaudan launch its latest addition to the TasteSolutions® portfolio, which has driven flavoursome, healthier eating options in the 21st Century. TasteSolutions® Richness goes some way to seeking out the ‘Holy Grail’ of flavour in readymade, processed foods, namely the recreation of rich, authentic ‘homemade’ taste sensations.
AIM-PROGRESS: collaboration, compliance, and continuous improvement
AIM-PROGRESS is a global framework for multinationals, mainly fast moving consumer goods companies, which have joined forces in the name of responsible sourcing. For many of these large-scale consumer goods producers, raw materials form the backbone of their business, and these natural resources must be sourced, grown and harvested in a responsible manner along their supply chains.
