As a multinational company Oriflame has a significant impact on the surrounding world. At a time when the planet is facing serious threats from climate change, loss of biodiversity and resource scarcity, Oriflame has an important role to play in pursuing more sustainable business models in all parts of its operations.
Oriflame’s environmental sustainability strategy is based on results from a lifecycle assessment of the Company’s operations; from raw material extraction to production and disposal, focusing mainly on the carbon footprint. The study identified Oriflame’s most significant environmental impacts and the actions taken today are aimed at reducing these impacts.
Four Key Areas
The strategy contains a series of commitments across four key impact areas: sustainable sourcing, climate change, water and waste. The aim is to reduce environmental impact through a number of priorities across these areas: sourcing of sustainable natural resources, such as paper, palm oil and other ingredients; reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; reducing water consumption and emissions to water and minimising waste throughout the supply chain. In 2012, Oriflame continued to roll out a series of improvements designed to embed sustainability principles into every part of the business.
