Our responsible business commitment
At Avon, we recognise the part we can play in addressing the challenges of rapid climate change and inequality of income and opportunity.
We are proud that “standing for her” is front and centre of our responsible business commitment. We aim to democratise beauty, help women succeed and support causes that matter most to them.
We do this whilst working to reduce our environmental impact and operating as a company that makes and sells high-quality, responsibly sourced products. In our operations, we strive to make a positive impact to leave the world better than we found it.
Women's economic empowerment
We are driving change for women’s economic empowerment by supporting our beauty entrepreneurs to achieve success; providing opportunities, helping build confidence and networks, and enabling them to be successful independent business owners. 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.

Fair for her programme
Fair for Her is a programme to help to improve working conditions for c.250,000 women across our supply chain.
The programme aims to enhance the social procurement programmes already in place to ensure that women working in the third-party factories and fields that supply our products have the best opportunities to advance their careers.
A global stand against animal testing
Avon does not test products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world. We have been working for acceptance of non-animal methods for three decades.
