In the last 16 years, the Parma based hair cosmetics company has achieved impressive results in terms of sustainability and respect of the environment.
Davines Group – B Corp and Benefit company specialising in professional hair cosmetics products – has recently introduced its 2021/2022 Sustainability Report; a document that summarizes the results achieved in the areas of Planet, Community and People. The report also illustrates the next goals of the company to continue its 16 year commitment in the field of environmental and social sustainability.
The Davines Group has an ever-growing holistic approach to ensure the well-being of individuals, society and the environment, also underlined by its certification as a B Corp company, obtained in 2016 and recertified in 2021. This commitment was also recognised by the award of best B Corp Best for the WorldTM 2022 for its positive impact in the environmental area.
Davide Bollati, Chairman of the Davines Group, commented: “The Davines Group was born with a vocation for sustainability and this sensitivity to the environment is why we are a B Corp today, and this means that, unlike other actors who are still debating which direction to take, we are confident in the one we have chosen. Our path has evolved along with our ability to measure our impact resulting from the Group’s direct and indirect emissions. Along the way, we also realized that while in certain areas we can only reduce our impact, in others we can go a step further and engage in regeneration. Our founding values are three interdependent pillars that form the foundation of how we see the world and how we do business. We need to repair the damage done to the environment and create a safer world for the well-being of people and the planet”.
Here are some of the main achievements of the company’s commitment of sustainability:
Decarbonization: 99,7% of the electricity globally used by Davines comes from renewable sources
Circularity: 841,1 tons of fossil-based virgin plastic avoided since 2014
Biodiversity: 83,6% ingredients of natural origin in Davines’s formulas
