This webinar, a Stockholm+50 Associated Event held as part of commemorations of the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, will highlight the global fragrance value chain with its sustainability challenges and opportunities for solutions.
The fragrance industry is rooted in the natural world through its development of scents, both natural and synthetic, but is always 'bio-inspired'. Starting with the responsible sourcing of natural ingredients, to reducing the environmental footprint of manufacturing companies and advancing product safety, to developing partnerships with stakeholders, this event highlights the value of collaborative and sector-wide initiatives.
Within the framework of the IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charter, signed by more than 130 companies around the world, this event shares thinking, best practices and tools that may be of value to those wishing to be part of a sustainability community, and showcases how these initiatives contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals in an actionable way.
