Supply Chain

Consumers want more than a product that performs as promised. They also want to know where it comes from and to be confident that it has been made without violation of human rights. In these respects, we are committed to transparency and collaboration.

We already have high demands on our supply chain regarding sourcing and human rights. We engage them to set their own targets and pursue activities that will make a difference across a number of areas including types of material, energy use, waste, and packaging.

Our overall ambition is to have a positive impact on our supply chain and, in doing so, contribute to regenerating natural resources. We focus on three main areas: forestry, human rights & animal rights.

1Forestry

Today, the world’s forests are in serious danger from deforestation and degradation. We will promote and actively support sustainable forest and land management to reduce and eliminate these threats.

We purchase all material from agriculture & forestry from certified suppliers. We support forest regeneration.

2Human Rights

We respect human rights in our value chain and continue to ensure the implementation of international labor standards.

All suppliers sign our Supplier Code of Conduct as a condition of engagement and all raw material & packaging suppliers (to Group and local entities) located in risk countries as defined by the World Bank by amfori BSCI will be subject to an independent third party audit against acceptable social audit standards by 2025.

3We commit to advancing animal welfare in our value chain

We aim to eliminate animal testing as a method of determining product safety. We commit not to test our products on animals, and we do not ask others to test for us. Where a regulatory body demands animal testing of ingredients used in our products for its safety or regulatory assessment, we seek alternative testing methods.
