Natura &Co is home to four pioneering, socially conscious, and iconic global beauty brands—Avon, Natura, The Body Shop, and Aesop—each unique in mission and spirit, yet connected by a common goal of shaping a better, more caring world.

Originating from all four corners of the world, the Group creates products and experiences that promote the well-being of people, animals, and the planet.

In June 2020, Natura &Co unveiled its Commitment to Life, a comprehensive sustainability plan created to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues, including the climate crisis and protecting the Amazon, defending human rights and ensuring equality and inclusion throughout its network, and embracing circularity and regeneration by 2030.

When it comes ensuring equality and opportunity for women, Natura &Co has a robust set of goals it aims to deliver ahead of its 2030 overall targets.

  • Creating better, kinder, and more inclusive conditions for our networks to thrive in.

  • Going beyond the UN SDG goal of 30% women in leadership positions by increasing its goal to 50% by 2023 (we have already achieved this goal). Natura &Co will guarantee gender parity and equitable pay by 2023 among it is entire workforce.
  • Ensuring that all its associates receive a living wage or above by 2023. Measuring and increasing profit, health, and education of more than six million consultants and representatives over this period, while promoting it as a trusted and reliable business model, including amongst 35,000 family members from which it directly sources ingredients and materials.
  • Ramping up its commitment to be a company that gives back across its four brands by increasing investments in key causes by 20% to $600 million (like breast cancer awareness, domestic violence, and education).

At the invitation of UN Global Compact, Natura &Co is a patron of its Target Gender Equality program to help drive dialogue and action towards achieving the ambitions of the UN Sustainable Development Goals on gender equality.
