July 25, 2012
HOLZMINDEN, Germany—Symrise AG has joined the United Nations’ Global Compact, a 12-year-old initiative that sets standards for human rights, labor rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption measures. Symrise joins more than 8,000 companies committed to uniting entrepreneurial activity with societal and environmental concerns.
By signing the compact all members, particularly companies and organizations, commit to 10 universally accepted basic principles of sustainable and ethical economic activity, such as banning child labor, fighting corruption, or promoting environmental activities.
“For us, worldwide economic success goes hand in hand with societal and environmental responsibility. We are convinced that sustainability supports our growth ambitions and look forward to actively participating in the Global Compact network," said Symrise AG CEO Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Bertram."
