As a conscientious, purpose-driven company, we are committed to affecting positive change through our business actions. Since we became a stand-alone company in December 2020, we embarked on our sustainability and social impact journey to embed ESG into our ethos. In our first two years, we have followed science-based methods and practices, benchmarked and measured our baselines and developed actionable plans and targets. This ESG Manifesto is the first formal publication of our commitment to sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG). We have validated our ESG goals aligned with our stakeholders’ expectations of us as a global beauty leader.
As a participant of the United Nations Global Compact, we proudly support science-based, quanti fied commitments and goals prioritized as our People, Planet and Product pillars. These goals include: Reducing our carbon impact on the environment; reducing water usage in our operations; innovating our products for both clean and green formulation; reducing waste in our packaging and materials; and importantly, embedding diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at the core of our business, our culture, and in the communities where we operate. Every day, we support a legion of professional hair and nail salon artists and owners, connect with more than 91 million customers and consumer beauty lovers, social in fluencers, ambassadors and employees, across the globe. These people are our Wella Family and together we impact positive change.
We believe that when we better the local communities where we operate, we help create a healthier and more equitable society. When our local professional communities and the people we serve thrive, we thrive. While still a young, ambitious organization, our commitment to People, Planet and Products is a building block of our strategic growth agenda. We lean into the complexity of these issues, approaching them with the same rigor that we put into creating
Pairing our portfolio of iconic brands with the passion and expertise of our people, we believe we have the foundation for something special and impactful for our world.
We are committed to education and driving the industry to strengthen Wellas position within the market as a leader .
