Responsible business

Being Human-kind and Planet-kind

We believe business can be a force for good, and as part of the Natura &Co Group, we are committed to tackling some of the most urgent issues facing people and planet. Through our sustainable approach to business we’re committed to addressing the climate crisis and tackling social issues such as equality and inclusion: to be both Human-kind and Planet-kind. 

HUMAN-KIND

PLANET-KIND

Being human-kind is about supporting our communities around the world – from our Representatives and employees to supply chain partners and beyond. Our business model stands for opportunities for Representatives to earn and learn and for their economic participation. 

We want to create a better world for women, which is a better world for all. We seek to help women overcome the challenges they face, and become the best they can be – through our accessible beauty brand, through our earnings opportunity, and through the programmes we run to support the issues that matter most to women, breast cancer and gender-based violence.

Being Planet-kind includes our work to address the climate crisis, embrace circularity and regeneration and lower the environmental footprint of our operations. This includes reducing our carbon emissions and improving waste management, recycling and water stewardship across our operations. 

We’re also doubling down on our efforts to reduce packaging our of products, move to 100% sustainable paper, and increase use of recycled and recyclable materials. When it comes to product formulation we’re working towards more renewable and natural ingredients and biodegradable formulas. We’ve also committed to full traceability and/or certification of our critical supply chains by 2025.

We welcome and encourage inclusion and diversity. We’re proud to support the UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business, and celebrate and support all of our LGBTIQA+ communities around the world.
