Strengthening relationships between our company, environment and communities
Our Sustainability Pillars
Sustainability is about trying to create a better future and do the right thing for all of our stakeholders, all of the time. In line with our ethos and commitment to constantly improve the environmental footprint we create and the contribution we make to the world as a business, we focus our energies on five key Corporate Responsibility (CR) pillars:
We have a moral duty to conserve and enhance our local environment.
We play a proactive role in our local communities by creating jobs, buying local and supporting educational, community and charity groups.
We are committed to being a best-in-class employer and ensuring our workplaces are safe and welcoming for all.
Our Supply Chain
Food safety and security is at the core of everything we do and we work hard to ensure traceability and ethical sourcing across all our supply chains.
We constantly innovate to produce healthier, more ethical and sustainable products to help consumers make better choices and lead better lives.
Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility efforts are integral to our vanilla supply chain.
Generational relationships, built over decades of collaboration and widely varied market conditions, are at the heart of our trusted network of partners in the SAVA region of Madagascar. Working with the Madagascar Development Fund and other investment partners, we’re committed to giving back to the underserved vanilla growing region, building schools, and establishing clean water systems throughout the area.LEARN MORE ABOUT SUSTAINABLE VANILLA AT SYNERGY

We are passionate about sustainability, for the benefit of both our customers and our communities.
In 2021, we teamed up with EcoVadis to benchmark our sustainability performance and identify ways to improve. EcoVadis assesses companies against seven management indicators containing 21 sustainability criteria across four categories: environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. We are proud that in our first submission to EcoVadis, we scored in the top 50% of all assessed companies, regardless of industry.
