When Avon said it is doing beauty differently, they meant it in every step of their process.
Challenging the industry in the Philippines for 44 years and globally for over 135 years, Avon is on an ambitious journey for long-term sustainability. The global beauty brand is perfecting every formula with cruelty-free technology, shifting to recyclable packaging, and advocating for community welfare by putting the environment first.
As part of Natura &Co, Avon adheres to a 2030 Commitment to Life that aims to achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2030. And in its efforts toward sustainability, the global beauty brand, announced Its first solar-powered facility.
Avon, in collaboration with Spectrum, a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), inaugurated the solar rooftop project in its manufacturing plant in Calamba Laguna last April 22, in celebration of Earth Day.
Since its completion, the solar installation has generated more than 250,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy, helping the beauty company lower its carbon footprint by 160 tonnes. It is expected to generate almost 841,100 kWh clean energy on its full year of operations, nearly quadrupling the carbon footprint reduced to 599 tonnes or equivalent to 329,315 trees planted.
