Our approach to shaping a sustainable future

At Givaudan, sustainability means protecting our planet, colleagues, customers and consumers, and safeguarding the future of our business. We know that we can only live up to our Company purpose of ‘creating happier, healthier lives with love for nature’ if sustainability becomes an integral part of our everyday work.


As our business grows, we must continue to act as a force for good in the world, working closely with our customers to meet their needs for more sustainable solutions and products, against the backdrop of a growing demand from society.

Although we still have work to do, we have a lot to be proud of. Our B Corp journey is well underway, for example, and our ground-breaking innovations are bringing us closer to a climate positive future. We aspire to have a positive impact on society and the environment, whether through our products, practices or profits. This aspiration requires whole supply chain collaboration, vigilance, bold action and accountability. To ensure that we continue to make progress and focus our efforts, we have set specific targets under each of our four sustainability pillars: Creations, Nature, People and Communities.
