Responsible business

Our sustainability commitments and actions

We recognise the part we must play in addressing the challenges of rapid climate change, ensuring equality and inclusion, and shifting our business towards circularity and regeneration. We strive to make a positive impact, to leave the world better than we found it.  

The heart of our business model is creating opportunities to earn and learn and for economic participation for our Beauty Advisers. From our employees through to our supply chain communities, we support human rights and women-owned businesses. 

We run programmes through our Avon Foundations and local operations in more than 50 countries to create positive outcomes for women’s health and wellbeing.  

And we’re open to all, regardless of gender and sexuality or any other characteristic such as race, age and ability. 

We do this whilst working to reduce our environmental impact and operating as a company that makes and sells high-quality, responsibly sourced products.

Economic participation

We were founded to provide an opportunity to earn and learn – bringing economic freedom for Beauty Advisors so they can shape their own future. We continue to drive change for economic participation today, supporting women across the world to build their own business.

We take the same approach to advancing women in our business. We strive to attract and retain high performing female talent, as well as fostering an equitable and inclusive workplace.
