Our Strategy

Supporting the Beiersdorf C.A.R.E.+ corporate strategy of competitive sustainable growth, our CARE BEYOND SKIN Sustainability Agenda is designed to make a measurable and positive contribution to the environment and society. Moreover, as one of the largest skin care companies in the world, we recognize our role in tackling climate change. 

Our transformation towards sustainability is a key priority for us at Beiersdorf and a key pillar of our C.A.R.E.+ strategy. With our CARE BEYOND SKIN Sustainability Agenda, we have set ourselves a very ambitious climate target, aiming to become a leader in climate action in our industry.


From social inequalities to climate change, as a global community we are facing severe challenges. At Beiersdorf, we recognize our responsibility to foster positive change and to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. We aim to maximize our positive impact on society and minimize our environmental footprint.



Seven strategic priorities span the entire value chain from ingredient supplier to end consumer. These seven priorities are at the core of our CARE BEYOND SKIN Sustainability Agenda.
