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 a few raw materials being used that are obtained from threatened species (according to the IUCN Red List and CITES definitions). Via corresponding sustainability verifications, strict use controls, efficient production processes and the development of suitable raw material alternatives, we concentrate on avoiding and minimizing any negative biodiversity impact, and we ensure a sustainable use of these species.

Symrise cannot directly monitor changes in species’ populations within ecosystems that our suppliers deem relevant for generating raw materials.
