Sustainability is our way of life
Ricola is committed to thinking and acting sustainably, and for decades, this has been an important basis for the management’s decision-making. The sustainability strategy is based on the stable foundation of our declaration that “Sustainability is our way of life”.
This commitment places sustainability at the heart of internal processes and reinforces internal and external communication on sustainability issues.
The sustainability strategy focuses on the areas in which the company has the greatest impact on its stakeholders and the environment. This means that the herb specialties and their manufacture are at its core.

The Ricola “Green Team”
A team of seven people from the company’s main departments ensures a broad basis for sustainability management at Ricola.
The team comprises experts from the areas of herb cultivation, HR, energy and technology, procurement, product development, packaging and communications.
They developed the sustainability strategy and are responsible for ensuring that the defined sustainability targets are achieved in their area.
To enable this “Green Team” to work even more effectively, there are plans to create a specialist sustainability department that coordinates the various activities and the implementation of the strategy, and serves as a specialist point of contact for internal and external stakeholders.
