Goal 16

Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies

The actions of Symrise AG’s management and oversight bodies are determined by the principles of good and responsible corporate governance. It goes without saying that we adhere to the laws of the countries in which we work and even exceed them in terms of our own standards. Humane working conditions, decent employment and due consideration for the social aspects of employment are the foundation for how we act at every location. Violations of children’s rights are not tolerated. We also require our suppliers to uphold basic human rights and to avoid all forms of child labor.

We do not tolerate any form of corruption in our company. Accepting or providing money or other services in an attempt to gain a competitive advantage do not belong to our business practices. Our employees regularly receive compliance training, which also includes measures to avoid corruption and bribery. Symrise performs regular and ad hoc audits of all of the sites to identify any cases of corruption.
