Dear Colleagues,

It is still not possible to tell what effects the global coronavirus pandemic will have on the economy and on Symrise. However, it looks like the economic, environmental and social challenges it poses can only be overcome through sustainable solutions.

This issue of Team Spirit is dedicated to all aspects related to sustainable business. We have taken the right path and strategically set the de­cisive course toward positioning ourselves for the future in an even more responsible way.

Sustainability concerns us all – every single Symrise employee – regardless of position. The following pages present exciting topics and initiatives that have come from our colleagues or have been implemented in their teams with great enthusiasm – a kaleidoscope of how we value sustainability. I would especially like to thank all the Sustainability Ambassadors across our organization. In addition to their daily work, they are committed to our goal of being “sustainably together” and come up with their own ideas to make it happen.

I hope you enjoy reading it!

Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Bertram
