Givaudan has announced the publication of its Sustainability Report 2015, published in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G4 reporting guidelines.

2015 saw the culmination of a five-year strategy cycle for Givaudan, along with the introduction of a new roadmap for 2020 based on responsible growth and shared success. The company says that sustainability is embedded in all three pillars of its 2020 strategy: growing with customers, delivering with excellence, and partnering for shared success.

Today’s consumers want more sustainable products, Givaudan said.

“By leveraging our consumer insights, creative capabilities and innovation, we continue to help our customers respond to this demand,” said CEO Gilles Andrier. “The company strives for continuous improvement of operational processes to deliver on our strengthened eco-efficiency targets. We collaborate with suppliers on sustainable sourcing, and partner with our employees to promote responsible practices in the workplace and beyond.”

According to the company, innovation is one of four main areas driving sustainable performance at Givaudan. In parallel with the publication of the 2015 report, the corporate website has been updated to include four feature stories demonstrating ‘the way we innovate’ through advances in natural bioscience, skin sensitisation techniques, plant-based protein and product safety.

Givaudan’s Sustainability Report 2015 is the Company’s second report published according to GRI G4 guidelines, the latest generation of the most widely used sustainability reporting standard in the world. The full report is independently assured by EY LLP and available for download.
