The company has not set a company-wide target for an absolute reduction in GHG emissions yet.
Symrise also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Symrise commits to reduce absolute scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions 80% by 2028 from a 2020 base year*. Symrise commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services 30% by 2030 from a 2020 base year. Symrise commits to continue annually sourcing 100% renewable electricity through 2030. *The target boundary includes biogenic emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks
