No limits to sustainability

Partnering with our customers is mutually beneficial to achieving products with less environmental impact.

In 2013, Givaudan and a strategic supplier embarked on a programme to evaluate the sustainability attributes of a typical oral care flavour formulation. Both companies believe that any product, regardless of its provenance (organic, natural, natural identical etc.), has the potential to be more sustainable over time.

In the assessment the impact of more than ten oral care ingredients were reviewed. Givaudan and its partner have more than two decades of experience on evaluating environmental impacts, and a total of eleven impact categories were assessed. Analysed impact categories include greenhouse gas and water emissions, as well as land-use, energy-use and non-renewable resource-use.
