We’re evolving the way we source, make, use and dispose of the ingredients in our products to support the wellbeing of people in our supply chain and reduce our environmental impact.

We aim for all of our key agricultural, forest and marine-derived materials used in our ingredients and packaging to be sustainably sourced and deforestation free by 20301.

We are focussed on continuously improving the traceability and transparency of the materials we use. We use leading sustainable sourcing certifications where available, including the Forestry Stewardship Council / Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (FSC/PEFC) for sustainably sourced paper and board, and the Roundtable for Sustainable Sourcing of Palm Oil (RSPO) Mass Balance certification for palm oil derivatives2. We also seek to set clear standards for how we source and certify other materials where there is not yet an established industry-wide standard.

We strive to only conduct business with third parties that maintain high ethical standards and operate responsibly. Our Working with Responsible Third Parties document outlines the expectations that we have of the third parties that we work with in order to promote the highest standards of professional integrity and trust.

Working collaboratively with suppliers and partners is critical to making progress on sustainable sourcing. We’re a member of Action for Sustainable Derivatives (ASD), a collaborative initiative that brings together companies in the cosmetics, home and personal care, and oleochemicals industries to collectively tackle supply chain issues around palm oil and palm kernel oil derivatives.

Case study: Industry collaboration to tackle supply chain issues around palm oil and derivatives.

We’re supporting two projects as part of the Action for Sustainable Derivatives Impact Fund, including Kaleka Mosaik Initiative, to ensure that all commodities within the Central Kalimantan district of Indonesia are produced more sustainably and inclusively, including protecting and restoring habitats and ecological corridors vital for wildlife. We’re also supporting a BSR HERrespect programme in plantations in Indonesia, to improve working conditions for women in the palm oil supply chain.
