Introduction

Avon is a leading global direct selling company in beauty, cosmetics, household and personal care products. It is a multi-level marketing company that employs over 6 million Avon Representatives.

Objectives

We work with Avon to implement their Palm Oil Promise and drive their action plan. These commit Avon to working with its supply chain in order to source palm oil, and its derivatives, from suppliers who have not contributed to deforestation or exploitation of people and communities. Furthermore, we are working with Avon to locate and transform issues on-the-ground related to the palm oil industry.

Key Stats

Avon reached 69% traceability to mill in 2018
Avon published a public mill list in July 2018
Avon have committed to furthering their commitment to the Palm Oil Promise in 2019

Our work

Together we are communicating Avon's sourcing commitments to its direct suppliers. We are also tracing supply to a point in the supply chain where suppliers can demonstrate that the palm oil meets Avon's sourcing principles. Partnering with key stakeholders is another facet of our work, aiming to contribute to transformation work on the ground, as well as tracking supplier progress towards achieving compliance with Avon's commitment.
