Energy? Save it!

Symrise continuously increases its eco-effi­ciency by focusing on innovations and ideas. Two examples show how.

Sustainability through innovations

In Egypt, Symrise buys hibiscus products which are used, for example, in cosmetics for their skin-soothing and antioxidant components or for their natural food coloring. An innovative project has now ensured that the raw material can be extracted much more efficiently and therefore also more sustainably. The improved process allows daily production to be increased by a quarter and, at the same time, food coloring yields rise from 65 to 83 %. Another advantage is that water consumption decreases enormously. Previously, 6,000 liters of fresh water were required per extraction process. Now, the water is used in a recirculation process. In addition, the water maintains its temperature, while previously it had to be heated from 15 ° to 55 ° Celsius.

in 2020 across the entire Symrise Group.

Packaging campaign


Symrise ships thousands of products every day that must be packed sensibly and securely. Since March 2020, the company’s packaging material suppliers have been offsetting the CO2 emissions generated by producing the cardboard boxes. In the middle of the year, these materials were replaced with climate-neutral alternatives. By the end of 2020, this had saved around 389 tons of CO2. Since the beginning of this year, all packaging materials in Holzminden have subsequently become climate-neutral, which will reduce emissions by around 12,500 tons by the end of 2021. In the coming year, the main production sites in all regions around the world will follow.
