Strategic Initiatives 

The following strategic initiatives will enable us to reach our emission reductions goals by 2035, paving the way for zero CO2 emissions by 2050: 

1. Decarbonization:
Reduce carbon intensity of scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 (Baseline 2020)

  • Fonti di energia rinnovabile
  • Audit di ottimizzazione
  • Apparecchiature più efficienti

2. Sustainable Product Design:
Incorporate a sustainable design principles checklist into 100% of innovation projects by 2024

  • Formare la R&S sulla sostenibilità
  • Progettare prodotti con un'impronta ambientale ridotta


We know that none of this will be easy, but we face this challenge with a proactive mindset. We will make investments in energy-efficient and electrified production equipment, adapt our manufacturing processes, and continue to look for technologies that are not currently viable to scale or do not yet exist. We will source as much power from sustainable sources as is financially and physically feasible. 


3. Water Stewardship:
Reduce overall water withdrawal by 30% by 2030 and reduce water withdrawal intensity by 30% in areas categorized as having high or extremely high water stress levels (Baseline 2020)

  • Audit interni sul consumo di acqua
  • Pulizia e lavaggio più efficienti
  • Più contatori d'acqua e migliore tracciabilità dell'acqua

4. Waste Reduction:
Increase average landfill diversion to 90% by 2030

  • Valutazione della gestione dei rifiuti
  • Ridurre i rifiuti in discarica
  • Esplorare un packaging e un design più ecologici

5. Sustainable Supply Chain:
Collect auditable sustainability data and perform assessments on the suppliers that represent between 75-90% of our total spend by 2030

  • Onboarding dei fornitori in materia di sostenibilità
  • Formare i team di approvvigionamento sulla sostenibilità
  • Connettersi con i fornitori sulle piattaforme ESG
  • Raccogliere i dati di tracciabilità dei materiali grezzi alla fonte

Sensient Beauty is part of a consortium of 15 cosmetics industry companies that have announced that they have joined forces to create the TRaceability Alliance for Sustainable CosmEtics (TRASCE) to enhance traceability in key ingredient and packaging supply chains across the industry. We are committed to work collectively to map our supply chains on a common digital platform, Transparency-One, an ISN Company.

“This data collection process on supply chains has no other purpose than to improve the collective knowledge of the sectors in scope in order to assess the risks. This will enable a greater number of players to strengthen their commitment to responsible sourcing.”

– Gaelle Frere, President of Sensient Beauty
