Sustainability is not optional for Naturex


Avignon, July 2015 – In line with the Bright 2020 Strategic Plan, Naturex unveils its 2015 Sustainability Report.




As a global manufacturer operating in more than 25 countries, natural resources and social responsibility are crucial to Naturex’s development. The new 2015 Pathfinder Report includes both an update on current sustainability actions and the company’s new global 2020 goals.

Olivier Rigaud, Naturex’s CEO, comments: “Sustainability is vital for our business because nature nurtures all our future developments. It is a key pillar of our Bright 2020 Strategic Plan. Our long-term growth relies on our capability to take into account sustainability in our daily work.”

The publication underlines how Naturex has made significant progress across all four themes of its sustainability focus areas – Sourcing, Operations, People, and Innovation. It features examples from around the world that capture some of Naturex’s key sustainability efforts and impacts.

Recently added to the company’s portfolio, Quillaia is a perfect example of the company’s 360° approach toward people and environment. Native to Chile, Quillaia saponaria, the soap bark tree, is a hardy perennial evergreen. The extract obtained from the wood is used in the food, cosmetics and health industries as a natural foaming agent and as an emulsifier. Harvested in accordance with Chilean Forest Authorities requirements, locally extracted and responsibly processed, the Quillaia extraction process shows the extent of Naturex’s commitment to sustainability and enhances its ambition to help its customers switch from synthetic to natural.
