IUCN Red List species and national conservation list species with habitats in areas affected by operations

Due to our stable customer and product portfolios, there are still only a few raw materials being used in small volumes at Symrise AG that are obtained from threatened species (according to the IUCN Red List and CITES definitions). Through corresponding sustainability verifications, strict use controls, efficient production processes and, last but not least, the development of suitable raw material alternatives, we concentrate on avoiding or minimizing negative biodiversity impacts on endangered species and natural populations.

Symrise cannot directly monitor changes in individual species or the ecological condition of those ecosystems that our suppliers deem relevant for generating raw materials.
