AAK is proud to announce that it has been recognised with a 2020 Sustainable Beauty Award and named a joint winner in the Sustainability Leadership Category.
The award was shared with Lush and presented by the organisers, Ecovia Intelligence, via video link on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
“AAK is recognised for creating sustainable supply chains which create value for smallholders,” says Amarjit Sahota, Founder and President of Ecovia Intelligence and organiser of the Sustainable Beauty Awards, citing the Kolo Nafaso direct shea sourcing program as one notable example.
“Well done, AAK, for your sustainable supply chains and sourcing programs across the globe.”
Ensuring responsible supply chains, minimising environmental impact and offering value-adding sustainable solutions are all fundamental to the continued development and success of AAK.
As a sustainable leader, the company aims to support customers and suppliers in sustainability best practices by sharing knowledge and experience in order to increase awareness and drive change.
“At AAK, we engage to transform,” explains Lisette Townsend, Global Business Development and Marketing Director, AAK Personal Care. “We work together with global cosmetic brands on improving traceability and monitoring and we offer practical help and guidance to customers starting out on their sustainability journey.
"It is not the easiest or quickest route, but small, tangible changes can achieve impactful, long-lasting results. The health and well-being of our planet and people is the responsibility of us all and we believe everyone can play a part in ensuring a better, more sustainable future.”
