With the German Awards for Excellence, DQS annually recognizes companies that assume a leading role in the area of sustainability. The awards are conferred in 15 different categories for corporate social and environmental responsibility. The goal is to encourage a greater commitment to sustainability among businesses.
This year, Symrise received the German Excellence Award in the “Society Engagement International” category. The award recognizes international projects that promote the dialogue between companies and society and strengthen weaker civil societies in certain regions. Symrise received the award for its commitment to grower communities in developing and emerging markets like Madagascar and Ecuador.
In addition, Symrise won a prize for the film the audience judged to be the most convincing on the topic of sustainability.
