Creating a healthier planet

There's no denying the connection between the planet's health and human health. This connection will only deepen as we feel the growing impact of global warming.

We strive to be a regenerative business that adds value to both our society and the environment.

We're combatting climate change by cutting our carbon footprint. That's why we're working to make our sites, products and suppliers more water and energy efficient, using more renewable fuels, and designing for a lower carbon economy. We know that a healthier planet means healthier lives.

Our approach to biodiversity

We rely on natural resources in our supply chain, such as fresh water and rubber trees, to make our flagship brands. Latex for Durex condoms, palm oil for soaps, and fragrances for our perfumes. In line with our purpose to protect, heal and nurture in the relentless pursuit of a cleaner, healthier world, we are working on a biodiversity strategy that supports a nature-positive future.
