Sustainability at Beiersdorf

For us, "care" is more than just part of our core business – it is a key value that demonstrates our responsibility to people and the environment. We want to enable future generations to live better lives by maximizing our own sustainability efforts. What’s more, we see this as an opportunity to inspire the people around us, develop stronger relationships with our employees, suppliers, customers and consumers and grow our business.

Our Focus: Products, Planet, People

Our sustainability strategy focuses on three areas: “Products, Planet, People”. It involves topics that comprise the entire value chain, from procurement of raw materials to the health and safety of our employees and changing consumer expectations.
