Our CSR approach


As a longtime leader in clean and natural perfumery, Sozio is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and having a positive impact on society.

An environmental commitment

Working hard to improve its commitment to sustainability, Sozio works with EcoVadis, a collaborative platform for sharing information on sustainability performance. The rating methodology covers 21 sustainability criteria divided into 4 themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. It is based on leading standards such as GRI, UNGC and ISO 26000 and is overseen by an international scientific committee. The overall EcoVadis score (0-100) reflects the quality of the company’s sustainability management system at the time of the assessment.

Sozio was awarded the ECOVADIS silver medal in 2021 and plans to achieve gold medal in 2023.

At every stage of the fragrance life cycle, from the purchase of raw materials to the end of life of the manufactured products, Sozio is committed to the development of respectful and innovative products.

Sozio is convinced that innovation is a major asset for a better future. The R&I teams are working on numerous projects to improve the performance of fragrances while minimizing their environmental impact. In this respect, our innovation team recently launched Cosmocaps, an encapsulation technology to replace synthetic microcapsules made from microplastics. This technology received a prize at the Cosmetiquemag Awards in the category of best beauty-tech innovation in BtoB.

Our sourcing strategy has been redefined with the Botanicals division, which ensures short supply chains while favoring local producers and suppliers such as associations or NGOs. Our teams work closely with producers to support them on sustainable developments.
