CTPA Sustainability Strategy: Being a Catalyst for Change
Time: 11:30 - 12:00
Date: 3 July 2019
Theatre: Brooks Building
Sustainability is a key focus for us all and by using CTPA’s unique position to effect change at a pre-competitive level, there is the opportunity to present a balanced, conscientious, world-leading industry. The CTPA Sustainability Strategy aims to make the cosmetics and personal care industry a force for good by putting more back into society and the environment than is taken out.
CTPA and its members have agreed three key areas of focus covering all aspects of industry’s value chain: sustainable production and supply, waste and end-of-life fate, and wellbeing, from workers in the supply chain to consumers.
Whilst many member companies have strategies in place to communicate their actions, targets and ambitions for making the cosmetics industry more sustainable, there are aspects, such as advocacy and collaboration, where CTPA is in a unique position to help SMEs as well as much larger organisations and act as a catalyst for change.
CTPA will showcase best practice and strive to drive system-wide change, where necessary, addressing complex issues by fostering relationships with key stakeholders, such as NGOs, campaign groups or trade bodies within and beyond the sector.
