The pathfinder program
The Sustainability Pathfinder program is designed to express
Naturex’s ability to explore new and sustainable roads without
applying a rigid model. Our paths are not mapped; they’re made
by listening to local people and understanding the particularities of
an environment. Building a path implies relying on experience and
respecting the natural contours of the landscape. Throughout the
various departments of our company, we are constantly searching
for better ways of acting with respect to the earth and its people.
Our Pathfinder program aims to provide a rich source of ideas and
inspiration for combining economic success with environmental
protection and social responsibility. It reflects our continuous drive to
go one step further. This is what we stand for and how we behave
as a company. These values form the basis of our behavior towards
employees, suppliers, customers and shareholders.

Our foundation is governed by a six person Executive Board and includes people from both inside and outside the company. The Board sets the general policies and guidelines for the Foundation and is given full authority therein. The Executive Board meets at least three times each year to set budgets, report on activities, and monitor ongoing projects.
Areas of intervention
Created in March 2008 at the initiative of Jacques Dikansky, founder of Naturex, our foundation is dedicated to improving living conditions in the countries where Naturex sources its raw materials, and to do so selflessly, independently, and for strictly humanitarian purposes.
We are involved in implementing programs with a strong human and environmental dimension. To this end, we work in partnership with associations located in the countries where Naturex operates and where we source our raw materials.
We focus on the areas of environment, health, education, and economic development.
Careful to ensure that all funding goes as far as possible, the Naturex Foundation only works with associations and NGOs that practice complete financial transparency.
