Most recently, we joined the Valuable 500 to firmly anchor “disability inclusion” on our leadership agenda. We are also a signatory of the United Nations’ Standards of Conduct for Business supporting greater equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.
Coming out of COP21 in Paris, we set ourselves the most ambitious environmental goals in the industry with a vision to become carbon neutral.
For example, we committed to 100% renewable electricity across all operations by 2020. We have already reached 100% across our operations in Europe, North America and Brazil; and at 85% worldwide, we are well on the way to achieving our goal.
Recognized as a global environmental leader, this year, Firmenich is one of only two companies worldwide, out of 7,000, to have achieved a triple A ranking with CDP, in Climate, Water and Forestry.

However, we are optimistic about how companies are rallying around the SDGs. With just over 10 years left to transform our world, now is the time for action. At Firmenich we are committed to putting our innovation, science and scale to work to help drive positive change.
