Stakeholder engagement | 102-44

Key topics and concerns raised

We address the key concerns of our important stakeholder groups via established processes and clear responsibilities at Symrise as well as through our reporting. As part of our comprehensive updated materiality analysis via an extensive online survey combined with a qualitative survey of our stakeholders based on interviews of experts (see GRI 102-46), we determined current developments and expectations from Symrise in the area of sustainability in the reporting year. The three central topics of focus identified among all of the stakeholders were “responsible sourcing,” “climate protection and emission reduction” and “responsible use of raw materials.”
