Sustainability Record 2023

Symrise’s reporting on its non-financial and sustainability-related performance is based on the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards). The following Sustainability Record systematically presents all topics and disclosures deemed material by Symrise regarding its profile as well as its business, environmental and social performance for the 2023 fiscal year. Informational briefs on the individual GRI items are supplemented with interactive links. These links will take you to additional information, data and facts. The corresponding version of the standard is reported separately for each topic in the form of a respective annual figure.

The Sustainability Record was prepared for the 2023 fiscal year in accordance with the GRI Standards. It also contains our separate non-financial report in accordance with Section 289b (3) of the German Commercial Code (HGB). An overview of the related topics can be found here. Symrise prominently highlights its climate-related reporting via a TCFD index that precedes the GRI record, with references to detailed information about this topic as part of the CDP Climate Change Questionnaire at Symrise. An additional index at the beginning of the report refers to the reporting requirements covered by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). Principal Adverse Impact indicators in line with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) are also reported for the past fiscal year. An SFDR index preceding the GRI record refers to the reporting places that disclose information on the SFDR requirements.

All of the sustainability disclosures marked with in the text were audited and verified by an external review pursuant to the AA1000 Assurance Standard. The review assesses all quantitative and qualitative disclosures. The corresponding certification can be found here.
