Cosmetics + Personal Care
Sustainability has become a top priority and a key driver of product and business model innovation for leading cosmetics and personal companies as they look to navigate shifting stakeholder expectations and the challenges of an increasingly resource-constrained world.
In this defining decade, brands will need to shift from being mere purveyors of products to champions of sustainable transformation and transparency.
We understand key industry challenges
Supply chain engagement
Supporting suppliers in adopting sustainability best practices on climate, biodiversity and plastics can significantly reduce the impact of upstream activities.
Product portfolio transformation
To become sustainable businesses, brands must take action through their products. Transforming your product portfolio through the integration of ecodesign and circularity has the potential to drive significant impact reduction across the value chain.
The use phase is responsible for 40% of the sector’s impact. Changes in consumer habits through a mix of information, education and incentivization can help you reach your targets and deliver on your sustainability commitments.
