Ethisphere announces Avon as one of the 2021 world's most ethical companies


We’re proud to announce that Avon has been recognised as one of the 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies

This recognition by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, recognises our widespread commitment to promoting the highest standards of ethical business practice.

Avon’s inclusion on the 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies list also reflects our broader efforts to deliver positive social and environmental impact, create a safe, inclusive environment for employees and uphold human rights throughout our supply chain.

Avon is one of only 3 honourees in the Health & Beauty industry. In total there are 135 honourees recognised spanning 22 countries and 47 industries, including our sister company Natura.

As part of the Natura &Co Group, we don’t just want to be the best beauty company in the world, but the best beauty company for the world. Our Natura &Co Commitment to Life sets out an ambitious set of commitments to tackle some of the most urgent issues facing our world through a pioneering approach to corporate responsibility.

Avon CEO Angela Cretu said: “Thank you to Ethisphere for recognising our longstanding commitment to making the world more beautiful for all. We’re proud to be more than a beauty brand – we’re a global movement for women, supporting the communities in which we’re active, and with a deeply ingrained purpose embedded through our 130 year history. The role of business in helping to create a better world has never been more important and ethical practice sits at the core. Being recognized as one of 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies gives us a strong foundation to go even further, and to take others on the journey with us. Together we can change the world.”

Ethisphere CEO, Timothy Erblich said: “Avon International has a longstanding commitment to making the world better for women, their families and communities. What’s more, they strive to uphold the highest standard of ethics throughout its business operations and are truly committed to continuing to grow its corporate responsibility on all fronts. Congratulations to everyone at Avon for earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.”
