Ethics and Excellence Materiality Analysis

Firmenich has worked in partnership with Forum for the Future to conduct a materiality assessment for our business.

This exercise helped us identify the sustainability issues most material to Firmenich and our stakeholders, and serves to help inform our sustainability strategy in the future. Firmenich conducted in-depth interviews with company personnel, global business partners, customers and external experts in critical areas such as chemistry, nutrition, global health and regulatory affairs. Forum for the Future analyzed the interviews and conducted additional research to identify relevant material factors. These factors are presented in the matrix below and also available in our 2015 sustainability report, and 2016 sustainability report.

Each year, we review our materiality matrix, reassessing all material aspects and adjusting as needed. In FY17, we surveyed internal and external stakeholders, including employees, shareholders, customers, NGOs, suppliers, academia, and government personnel. This survey provided us with a clear vision of the current and future sustainability issues most material to Firmenich. All issues are covered in our 2017 sustainability report.
