Responsible Sourcing Policy
Givaudan is committed to sourcing all materials and services in a way that protects people and the environment by 2030.
As an industry leader with 250 years of heritage, we work in partnership with producers and suppliers to transform the way we source and create new value to be shared by all. Our approach is driven by our purpose: Creating for happier, healthier lives with love for nature. Let’s imagine together; in particular ensuring all stakeholders benefit from working with us, and showing our love for nature in everything we do.
Today, Givaudan sources more than 10,000 natural raw materials from all over the world for the creation of ingredients through our business activities in Fragrance & Beauty and Taste & Wellbeing. We also source synthetics, packaging and services from thousands of local, regional and global suppliers. Responsibly managing supply chains at this scale is complex, but we are committed to working with our suppliers for greater transparency and to improve practices in the areas of health and safety, environmental, social and business integrity.
We are committed to respecting human rights wherever we do business. We strive to make a positive impact on the communities in which we are present and we recognise that we have an important obligation to contribute to preserving the environment and the planet’s biodiversity for future generations. Our responsible sourcing programme supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and we have also begun our journey towards obtaining B Corp certification.
