The group will achieve net zero carbon emissions 20 years ahead of the UN Commitment, protect the Amazon, promote inclusion and equality and shift business towards circularity and regeneration

SÃO PAULO, June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Natura &Co (Avon, Natura, The Body Shop and Aesop - "the group") unveiled its Commitment to Life, a comprehensive sustainability plan which will step up its actions to tackle some of the world's most pressing issues, including the climate crisis and protecting the Amazon, the defence of Human Rights and ensuring equality and inclusion throughout its network, and embracing circularity and regeneration by 2030.

Through three pillars, Natura &Co's Commitment to Life aims to:

 

 

"We understand the critical moment we live in right now and the role that companies need to play to engage themselves and commit to a better, more sustainable and more inclusive society. We still need to do so much more to be the generation that restores our planet and protects its people. Aligned with our guiding principles, Natura &Co hopes to be a part of the dialogue and the solution. We're the generation that has the knowledge and the technology to stem the rise in global temperatures, put an end to the global waste issue, and create equality for those who need it most. But we now need to move faster, we need to act and be held accountable", says Roberto Marques, Executive Chairman of the Board and Group CEO of Natura &Co.

Silvia Lagnado, Natura &Co's Sustainable Growth Officer says "We are united, all four companies, in our decision to become Net Zero within 10 years, to develop regenerative solutions in pursuit of full circularity, and to take bold action towards more equality and inclusiveness in our network. We are focused on our destination and know our path will require innovation as well as collaboration over competition."

To reach this ambition and help drive the required change, Natura &Co are engaging with civil society to:

  1. Call on our partners, competitors, other companies, the academic world, and NGOs to join us in making a stand
  2. Challenge status quo believing that no one holds all the answers, and that the steps they've taken can be bettered collectively.
  3. Work with collectively in crafting and shaping a new world we can all be proud of.

Change of scale requires leadership, commitment, collaboration and innovation. All need to play their part. Over and above what it is already doing, Natura &Co is calling on industries, consumers, brands and governments to come together to fundamentally change the system and implement a regenerative vision at large that will create a fairer and greener world.
