The idea of the Sustainable Growth is constantly present on the European Commission agenda, the development plans of international corporations but also still more present in the minds of small and medium-sized enterprises’ owners all over Europe.
Cosmetics Europe, a European cosmetic sector organisation, got actively engaged in this area in 2013. Its engagement relates to the growing importance of environmental legislation in the recent years.
Bearing in mind the importance of the subject matter, we have established a Working Group on the Sustainable Growth (ZR Working Group) by the Polish Union of Cosmetic Industry in 2015.
The objective in front of the ZR Working Group is to discuss and exchange knowledge on the sustainable growth developments, to develop cosmetic-industry-oriented ZR standards, to monitor environmental legislation, as well as or mainly to proliferate the idea of the Sustainable Growth among the Union membership companies.
The Sustainable Growth promoting activities, in a nutshell:
during the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Union existence there was the first debate on sustainable growth.
between June 6 -7, 2013 there was a tree planting action in the Białowieża Forest. The initiative was created and organised by Chesapeake Polska Sp. z o.o. as a manifestation of the sustainable growth principles. The Union also wanted to counterbalance thousands of sheets of paper used for printing during the 10th anniversary celebration. Over 20 representatives of member companies took part and some 100 fir trees were planted.
on November 4, 2014 there was a conference entitled “Ethics and responsibility of the cosmetic sector in the context of the palm oil use”. It was held in the Copernicus Science Centre. Among the speakers there were representatives of BASF, UNGC Polska and the Polish Union of Cosmetic Industry, as well as WWF Polska, L’OREAL, Oriflame Cosmetics, Kozminski University, the Ministry of Environment and the Royal Thai Embassy. The invited guests discussed the issue of a growing demand for palm oil, a limited number of certified crops, prices and the final customer demand for ethical products.
the Sustainable Growth working group was created and the first Sustainable Growth Bulletin was published in order to popularise the idea and to prove the ideas can easily be put in practice.
