Our DNA is a mixture of commitment, honesty, transparency, effort, rigor, and a clear vocation of service to offer our clients the best materials to develop their products. Our great expertise and relationships forged over many years allow us to understand and satisfy the needs of our clients and share knowledge so that they perceive us as an ally and not just a distributor.

Lluch Essence has 19,000 m2 of warehouse and office space, and has a portfolio of more than 3,000 permanent products in stock, which enables a very short delivery time.

Goods may be provided in any type of packaging at the customer's request. On the other hand, goods receipt, warehousing, and order picking processes are controlled through the SAP Warehouse Management module.

Lluch Essence has implemented a Quality Management System based on the UNE-ES ISO 9001 Standard that covers the processes, the control, the operations planning for the production of goods, the evaluation of the results obtained, and the measurement of customer satisfaction. All this is included in a process of measurement and analysis to increase the efficiency and continuous improvement of the system.

Nuestro compromiso y valores

2021 has been a year of changes; we have lived through a season of chaos and confusion, marked by the post-COVID world and the recent confrontations in Europe. All these factors have had effects on the supply chain, through the lack of raw materials and the pressure on natural resources.

We can say that we have learned to live with uncertainty.

From Lluch Essence we progress, we advance, but we want to do it firmly and, above all, with stability. History shows that in times of disruption, resilience depends on adaptability and decisiveness in decisions.

For Lluch Essence, to prosper is to advance in a sustainable way in all senses. Our objective is to grow together with our clients, offering them the best essential oils and aromatic chemicals for the fragrance, flavor, cosmetic and animal feed industries. In this sense, we are deeply grateful to all the workers of the company who help us to grow and who guarantee the excellence of the service to our clients.

Currently, we are facing an ambitious plan to make our company a benchmark in transparency, sustainability and confidence, where we aspire for our stakeholders to understand that Lluch Essence's commitment is unquestionable.

Little by little, with transparency and a firm step, we continue to commit to sustainability. We align this commitment to our business strategy together with the Objectives of Sustainable Development (ODS) and the 2030 agenda. With this objective, we are becoming aware and creating larger projects, such as the installation of more than 350 solar panels that today self-generate more than 12% of the company's energy needs. Also, emphasize that 100% of the energy we consume is green and comes from renewable sources.

At Lluch Essence we are committed to creating value with our actions. We understand that it is our responsibility to contribute to a healthier community, causing a positive impact on people, working in strategic alliances and supporting communities.

Every step we take to reach sustainability is designed to minimize the environmental impact, through the implementation of simple actions that can make a substantial difference in the future: reducing the carbon footprint and expanding our catalog of organic products are some of our challenges.

When we talk about sustainability, we talk about promoting coherence and transparency, generating a positive impact on our environment and improving our competitiveness.

But at the same time, IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY, betting on a fairer and more sustainable world. We have never had so many agents involved and above all, hand in hand with the United Nations in the Sustainable Development Goals.

Despite the progress, the challenge is to continue advancing in defense of the environment and sustainability. And more especially at this time, in the middle of a pandemic, with the supply chain collapsed, and with a shortage of raw materials. But at the same time, IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY, to commit to an equitable and more sustainable world. We have never had so many agents involved and above all, hand in hand with the United Nations in the Sustainable Development Goals.

The objective of this report is to communicate, with transparency, the actions implemented and the progress we have made, we hope that it will be of interest to all our stakeholders. For our part, we trust to continue building a better Lluch Essence for all, investing in a sustainable future.

Descripción de los impactos principales o significativos:

Lluch Essence offers a wide portfolio with more than 4000 references, raw materials of vegetable, animal, mineral or synthetic origin.

In order to provide our customers the best product variety and typology (organoleptic and physicochemical properties), we maintain a long-lasting commercial relationship with the leading manufacturers of raw materials for both perfumery and food, as well as with those manufacturers who harvest and create essential oils in smaller volumes. Purchases of raw materials are intended to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, promoting the economic development of rural communities and purchasing directly from the origin countries reduces the number of intermediaries, the carbon footprint in the distribution process and improves the living conditions of many families. In addition, our company also owns HUBs in Shanghai and Mumbai, warehouses in Malaysia, Colombia and Mexico and is fitted with a network of distributors in several countries, which allow us to achieve the transition to a low-carbon economy.

In terms of environmental impact, Lluch Essence is aware of the impact that the company can generate. That is why, since 2019, an assessment of the carbon footprint is carried out, following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), of the heartquarter in Barcelona and its subsidiaries in Mexico and Colombia.

The compensation of the carbon footprint is carried out through conservation processes framed in sustainability criteria in the department of Guaviare in Colombia. In this project, the indigenous communities together with an association, are in charge of the protection of natural forests, the rescue of their cultural identity and productive practices. Thus contributing to the fulfillment of at least eigth of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations: no 1 (No Poverty), no 2 (Zero Hunger) no 5 (Gender Equality), no 7 (Affordable and Clean Energyl), no 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), no 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), no 13 (Climate Action) and no 15 ( Life on Land).

Ref. GRI Standard: 102-29

At Lluch Essence we work to identify and prioritize the most relevant issues for the company and its stakeholders, that is why in 2021 we carried out the first materiality assessment of the company. Based on this analysis, we measure the company's most significant social, environmental and economic impacts to ensure that we focus on the proper priorities.

Our activity has an impact that goes far beyond economic results, which is why we have to align our business performance with the expectations of our stakeholders and society in general.

Lluch Essence follows the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Integrated Reporting Framework for the study of its materiality, and was guided throughout the process by an external consultant.

The process began with the analysis of material issues considering the current context and the Sustainable Development Goals implemented by the United Nations Compact. A simulation workshop was held with the employees of Lluch Essence, who interpreted the different stakeholders and discussed the different material issues.

As a result of this workshop, 20 material issues were collected under five different aspects: acting on climate change, caring about people (internal and external) and growing business for good (Bon Govern and Economic). Lluch Essence collected the impressions of all its stakeholders, both internally and externally, by conducting an electronic survey and working together to prioritize the relevant issues for each stakeholder group.

The result of the process was validated by the General Direction and the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, and was integrated into our sustainability strategy and published in the sustainability report 2021.

Agenda 2030 y Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODSs) en acción 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. It is a global agenda, based on five dimensions: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Collective Participation articulated in 17 Sustainable Development Goals, divided in turn into 169 goals to be met in 2030, which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.

For years, scientists have warned us that environmental problems, which are the consequence of human activity, represent a danger both to our health and that of the planet. The coronavirus has shown us that we are not immune to these threats and their impact must not allow us to forget the great challenge facing humanity: the fight against climate change.

At Lluch Essence, we are strongly committed to 2030 Agenda, we have already undertaken specific actions and we believe efforts to pool together all of the work that is already going on should be included. Sustainability in business activities is being transformed into an essential component that allows us to succeed and thrive.

Lluch Essence works with local suppliers offering fair trade in its products with the aim of increasing economic activity in the local region and providing sustainable income.

In 2021, Lluch Essence's carbon footprint was 280 tons of CO2 equivalent, which was offset through our partner Climatetrade, through the YAAWI IIPANA REDD+ project.

YAAWI IIPANA REDD+ is a conservation project that seeks to protect part of the forests of the Amazon region and mitigate the impact generated by deforestation and forest degradation, promoting participatory reforestation and sustainable local development. It is located in the Municipality of El Retorno, in the Department of Guaviare, in the Amazon biome.

Objetivo 2: Poner fin al hambre, lograr la seguridad alimentaria y la mejora de la nutrición y promover la agricultura sostenible.
Ref. GRI Standard: 411-1, 413-2

Lluch Essence collaborates with the Food Bank in a campaign that mobilizes the entire company. The objective of this campaign is to raise awareness and inform workers about the reality of poverty in our country.

The campaign involves setting up collection points for non-perishable foodstuffs at strategic points in the company, so that employees can donate. This action lasts approximately two weeks and has been very well received by the workers of Lluch Essence, so that we have been collaborating with them since 2019.

At Lluch we are committed to our workers, providing them through specific Partners, an assortment of seasonal fruits of up to seven different varieties from local farms, so that all workers can enjoy the best of the farm in the office, thus promoting healthy habits that have a positive impact on the health of all. 

Likewise, Lluch Essence works to provide its workers with a range of benefits to facilitate work-life balance.

For example, it offers a flexible start, finish and lunch schedule, for those positions where this can be done, as well as the possibility of accessing a premium health insurance at a much more affordable price than in the current market, thanks to the strategic relationship that Lluch Essence maintains with the insurance company.

Objetivo 4: Garantizar una educación inclusiva y equitativa de calidad y promover oportunidades de aprendizaje permanente para todos.
Ref. GRI Standard: 404-1

At Lluch Essence we are committed to people and their training. Through the Escola Lluch program, we encourage and empower young university students in their first steps in the working world.

Likewise, we collaborate with the Educo lunchroom scholarships, helping children to have access to decent food. In Lluch Essence we understand that the right to education should be on equal conditions for everyone, since it is known that the ability to succeed depends to a large extent on a quality diet.

Lluch Essence defines itself as an empathetic, sociable, experienced and modern company. It has a code of ethics and an ethical channel for complaints available, as well as a documented equality plan.

On the other hand, in 2021 Lluch Essence's carbon footprint was 280 tons of CO2 equivalent, which was offset through our partner Climatetrade, through the YAAWI IIPANA REDD+ project.

In addition to biodiversity conservation, an objective of this project is the sustainable growth of their local communities, through the empowerment of indigenous women, to provide them with job opportunities in a safe environment that allows them to improve their quality of life.

Objetivo 7: Garantizar el acceso a una energía asequible, fiable, sostenible y moderna para todos.
Ref. GRI Standard: 302-1, 302-2, 302-3, 302-4, 302-5

Lluch Essence is committed to an efficient, sustainable and renewable production in an environmentally friendly way, focusing our efforts on the production of our own solar energy for self-consumption by installing solar panels, in addition to those we already have, to cover 100% of energy consumption.

In this way we will be self-sufficient in energy and if possible be part of an energy community, to manage the surplus energy in our locality and contribute to a collaborative, fair and decentralized energy system.

It should be noted that by the year 2021, 100% of the energy used in the headquarters located in Barcelona will come from renewable sources.

Objetivo 8: Promover el crecimiento económico sostenido, inclusivo y sostenible, el empleo pleno y productivo y el trabajo decente para todos.

At Lluch we work on policies and initiatives to guarantee the basic rights of our workers. Likewise, we encourage our suppliers to do the same, through a specific code of conduct for suppliers, which establishes the principles, values and standards of conduct that should govern the ethical behavior of all people working for Lluch Essence.

Lluch Essence insists on the need to respect moral and ethical values, and expects its suppliers to adhere to this same philosophy.

Objetivo 9: Construir infraestructuras resilientes, promover la industrialización inclusiva y sostenible y fomentar la innovación.
Ref. GRI Standard: 201-1, 203-1

At Lluch Essence we innovate for a better future. Through the expansion of our portfolio with natural, organic and sustainable products. Similarly, we are committed to a digital transformation in all internal processes of the company.

We are committed to circular economy projects such as the pallet recirculation project. Pallets are an essential element in our tertiary packaging, so the management of their waste is key to maintaining a sustainable industry.

The pallet recirculation process begins when we detect those pallets that no longer fulfill their function due to damage or other causes. We have the service of a company approved by the waste agency of Catalonia, which is responsible for collecting the residual pallets, transporting them, repairing them with remaining parts of other pallets from other companies. Finally, the repaired pallets are returned  and others are sold to other companies that use the same type of pallets.

Objetivo 10: Reducir la desigualdad en los países y entre ellos.
Ref. GRI Standard: 102-8, 207-1, 207-2, 207-3, 207-4, 401-1, 404-1, 404-3, 405-2

In Lluch Essence we work to create an environment free of inequalities, we understand equality as one of our fundamental pillars in our business strategy, which is why we declare our commitment through the equality plan.

Our objective is to promote the development of a company culture in favor of the strategic integration of the principle of equal treatment and opportunities in the management of our human capital, incorporating the gender perspective and other diversity factors in all our internal and external procedures, thereby expanding our CSR strategy in the social sphere. 

On the other hand, in October 2021, at Lluch Essence it was organized a Clothing Donation activity. Everyone at Lluch Essence donated as much clothes as they could to Amiga's foundation (https://www.formacioitreball.org/es/).

By donating second hand clothes we help to create a more just and cooperative society, as they are sent to developing countries and disaster stricken areas. We can also be part of a circular economy contributing to sustainable development.

Objetivo 11: Lograr que las ciudades y los asentamientos humanos sean inclusivos, seguros, resilientes y sostenibles.
Ref. GRI Standard: 203-1

In Lluch Essence we prioritize working with local entities for the realization of projects framed in sustainability, trying to create collaborative communities with sustainable growth. 

Likewise, Lluch Essence works with local suppliers offering fair trade in its products with the aim of increasing economic activity in the local region and providing sustainable income.

On the other hand, Lluch Essence is committed to efficient, sustainable and renewable production in an environmentally friendly way, focusing our efforts on the production of our own solar energy for self-consumption through the installation of solar panels, in addition to the ones we already have, to cover 100% of the energy consumption.

As part of our awareness plan, we promote the use of public transportation, walking or cycling for employee commuting, adapting flexible arrival and departure schedules and encouraging teleworking in those companies whose operations allow it, to reduce congestion and pollution in cities and rural communities.

Objetivo 12: Garantizar modalidades de consumo y producción sostenibles.
Ref. GRI Standard: 301-1, 301-2, 301-3, 302-1, 302-2, 302-3, 302-4, 302-5, 303-1-a, 303-1-c, 305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-6, 305-7, 306-1, 306-2, 306-3, 306-4, 417-1

Llluch Essence is committed to responsible consumption through different actions within the company. It provides all employees with a glass bottle so that they can drink water without having to buy it in a plastic bottle. Another action we carry out is the change of hand soap and toilet paper for other products with less impact on the environment.

Lluch Essence is also aware that responsible production is vital for sustainable development. Among all the projects that we carry out, the eco-design of our secondary packaging is one that Lluch Essence has been working to carry out. Similarly, we are involved in circular economy projects, such as the recirculation of our pallets.

The process of recirculation of pallets begins when detecting those pallets that no longer fulfill their function due to damage or other causes. We have the service of a company approved by the waste agency of Catalonia, which is responsible for collecting the residual pallets, transporting them, repairing them with remaining parts of other pallets from other companies. Finally, the repaired pallets are returned to the company and others are sold to other companies that use the same type of pallets.

On the other hand, in Lluch Essence 100% of the energy used in the headquarters located in Barcelona comes from renewable sources and we are currently in the planning stage of one of the most ambitious projects we have in Lluch Essence. The objective of which is the implementation of solar panels, in addition to those we already have, to cover 100% of our energy consumption.

Objetivo 13: Adoptar medidas urgentes para combatir el cambio climático y sus efectos.
Ref. GRI Standard: 201-2, 302-1, 302-2, 302-3, 302-4, 302-5, 305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-4, 305-5

Lluch Essence considers environmental management as a fundamental value of the corporate culture. Promoting environmental awareness and allocating the necessary resources to ensure the successful implementation of this environmental policy.

Below, we present our actions implemented in the year 2021:

  • Lluch Essence performs the calculation of Carbon Footprint and its compensation through ClimateTrade
  • Lluch Essence has expanded its portfolio of organic, natural and sustainable products. All of them certified by CCPAE and ECOCERT
  • We work to prioritize raw materials that do not come from species that are under attack or in danger of extinction, as is the case of palm oil. Likewise, we prioritize that the suppliers that work with this product are certified with RSPO, for a sustainable use of palm oil. Lluch Essence has created an energy transition strategy for the year 2023, in order to install solar panels which will provide 100% of the energy needed in the company.
  • In 2021 Lluch Essence has had the opportunity to participate in different trainings and seminars that have helped us to consolidate our actions in favor of sustainability.
  • Lluch Essence promotes sustainable mobility among employees, suppliers and in the distribution of products and services, in order to reduce emissions caused by land, air and sea transport.
  • Lluch Essence carries out an internal awareness campaign to work on environmental awareness.
Objetivo 14: Conservar y utilizar sosteniblemente los océanos, los mares y los recursos marinos para el desarrollo sostenible.
Ref. GRI Standard: 304-1, 304-2, 304-3, 304-4, 305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-4, 305-5, 305-7, 306-1, 306-3, 306-5

One of the most recurrent pollutants in the oceans are microplastics, these can be stranded between stones or positioned in places where extraction is almost impossible, bioaccumulating over the years and damaging marine ecosystems.

At Lluch Essence we are aware of the damage that these microplastics can cause, that is why we avoid their use, for example, we replace plastic cups with cups made of PLA, a biopolymer extracted from corn and other renewable crops.

Objetivo 15: Proteger, restablecer y promover el uso sostenible de los ecosistemas terrestres, gestionar de forma sostenible los bosques, luchar contra la desertificación, detener e invertir la degradación de las tierras y detener la pérdida de biodiversidad.
Ref. GRI Standard: 304-1, 304-2, 304-3, 304-4, 305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-4, 305-5, 305-7, 306-3, 306-5

At Lluch Essence we work to maintain a balance in our ecosystem, getting involved in projects in favor of biodiversity and responsible agriculture.

In 2021, Lluch Essence's carbon footprint was 280 tons of CO2 equivalent, which was offset through our partner Climatetrade, through the YAAWI IIPANA REDD+ project.

YAAWI IIPANA REDD+ is a conservation project that seeks to protect part of the forests of the Amazon region and mitigate the impact generated by deforestation and forest degradation, promoting participatory reforestation and sustainable local development. It is located in the Municipality of El Retorno, in the Department of Guaviare, in the Amazon biome, which, given its physical and climatological conditions, makes this area a fundamental area for climate regulation.

Likewise, we work to prioritize raw materials that do not come from species that are under attack or in danger of extinction, as is the case of palm oil. Likewise, we prioritize that the suppliers that work with this product are RSPO certified, for a sustainable use of palm oil.

Objetivo 17: Fortalecer los medios de implementación y revitalizar la Alianza Mundial para el Desarrollo Sostenible.
Ref. GRI Standard: 207-1, 207-2, 207-3, 207-4

Llluch Essence works to implement principles and guidelines that promote sustainable development, involving not only the company's employees, but also suppliers and customers to create strategic alliances with those who align with our mission, vision and values.

We currently have a code of conduct for suppliers and a code of conduct for employees, which allows us to establish a direct commitment to our objectives.
