+ SESSION: Sustainable Packaging: Going Beyond Ecodesign to Achieve the Environmental Pivot at Scale
Wednesday, October 16, 12:30-13:00 pm, Conference Room 10+11

The beauty industry faces increasing pressure to prioritize sustainable packaging choices amidst consumer demand for eco-friendly products, tightening regulatory scrutiny and competition for delivering environmental commitments. With a focus on addressing impact shifting, we will delve into the challenges and solutions faced by beauty brands in their quest for environmental responsibility.  

As consumers become more discerning, demanding transparency and eco-friendly choices, beauty brands are compelled to rethink their packaging design processes. Regulatory requirements, investor scrutiny, and retailer sustainability guidelines further drive this imperative. However, the narrow focus on specific sustainability objectives, such as recyclability or carbon emission reduction, risks unintended consequences.  

Natalia Trunova, will showcase detailed case studies, highlighting the strategies beauty companies have implemented in recent years to embrace ecodesign. These initiatives not only align with forthcoming regulations but also answer to consumer demands and enhance overall sustainability performance. Furthermore, she will equip all interested companies within the sector with the essential tools they need to advance on their ecodesign journey, ensuring they are well-prepared to meet both current and future sustainability challenges.

+ SESSION: Data management: Measuring product carbon footprint at scale
Thursday, October 17, 12:30-13:00 pm, Conference Room 10+11

In the contemporary landscape of environmental accountability, the imperative to measure Scope 3 emissions has catalyzed a surge in demand for granular insights into product-level carbon footprints (PCFs) throughout the supply chain. This paradigm shift is particularly pronounced in the cosmetics, personal care, and chemicals sectors, where companies are confronted with mounting pressure to quantify and mitigate their environmental impact.   

As stakeholders intensify their scrutiny, consumer goods companies find themselves inundated with an array of requests for PCF data. However, the task of measuring emissions at the product level is far from straightforward, entailing multifaceted challenges and intricate methodologies.   

In response to this pressing need, this conference aims to delve into the precise methodologies and tools required to set up ecodesign strategies effectively, utilizing digital solutions tailored for the cosmetics, personal care, and chemicals sectors. Participants will gain insights into defining methodologies collectively that enable accurate measurement and mitigation of product-level carbon footprints. By equipping stakeholders with this essential knowledge and tools, the conference seeks to foster sustainability-driven transformation across the supply chain, empowering companies to address environmental challenges effectively.

+ Tackling climate risks and nature dependencies for a healthy future for pharma
October 9th / 3:15PM – 3:40PM

The pharmaceutical industry accounts for over 4% of global emissions, with around 80% of medicines derived from plants or inspired by nature. The sector’s dependencies on natural ecosystems pose substantial risks from regulatory to operational. While industry leaders recognize the need for robust climate strategies, many overlook the importance of nature. By understanding your company’s reliance and impacts on nature, and accelerating action, pharma companies can mitigate environmental risks and drive resilience across the business. New frameworks and tools now make it easier for companies to quantify their impacts and set targets to reverse nature loss.

This session will share insights on leveraging frameworks like SBTN and TNFD to create sustainability strategies that integrate nature and climate. Topics include mitigating nature loss to bolster climate efforts and integrating sustainability into business models. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the vital role of sustainability in the pharma industry’s future.

+ SESSION: Which tools to use, when and how, for businesses on their water journey- Freshwater Accountability Navigator
Thursday, August 24, 09:00 – 10:30

The Freshwater Accountability Navigator (FAN) is an interactive tool developed by WBCSD and Quantis (to be launched in Q4 2023). It will show companies which water-related tools and frameworks to use when assessing water-related impacts and dependencies, setting targets, taking water-related action and disclosing this action.

This session is aimed at the private sector, especially industries that use significant amounts of freshwater in their own operations or supply chains. It sets out to encourage companies to engage and learn how they can strengthen their delivery on freshwater commitments and engage a wider group of stakeholders – government, civil society and investors – to create a common understanding of what ‘good’ corporate accountability for freshwater and sound water stewardship look like.

Our goal is that the audience leaves with:

  • An understanding of what the FAN is, and the business case for launching this initiative, and challenges it addresses,
  • An understanding of how they can engage with the FAN, and its benefits,
  • An overview of existing freshwater-related frameworks.

Theme: Adapting Consumption to Planetary Boundaries

How do we feed the world within the limits of our planetary boundaries? This is the daunting challenge the food & agriculture industry is facing: reducing greenhouse gas emissions and food waste, limiting freshwater consumption and soil depletion to restore biodiversity, our ecosystems and livelihood. Supplying a sufficient and healthy diet for 10 billion people whilst keeping our biosphere intact requires radically different ways of producing and consuming food. To speed up impactful transition, we need partnerships and capital that champion breakthrough innovations and facilitate dietary changes. It’s only through a collective effort that we can achieve a sustainable food system.

+ SESSION: How to use ecodesign as a performance lever in your decision making?
Thursday, June 15, 3:30-4:00 pm, Conference Room K3

In recent years, sustainability has become a growing concern. Consumers are demanding more transparency and businesses are recognizing the importance of reducing their environmental footprint. The upcoming environmental scores will create more pressure on manufacturers. Ecodesign is a powerful tool that can help companies achieve their sustainability goals while also improving their bottom line. 

Ecodesign is a process that involves designing products considering their environmental impact throughout their entire lifecycle. The key success factors for ecodesign in the beauty industry include:

  1. Choosing the right materials
  2. Reducing packaging waste
  3. Using energy-efficient processes
  4. Implementing sustainable practices
  5. Develop solutions that enable consumer to adopt more sustainable  behavior

In this session Natalia discussed the key success factors for ecodesign and how to use it as a performance lever in your decision making.
