A.S. Watson Group has announced to take on further responsibility for environmental sustainability by being the first health and beauty retailer to sign-up to the New Plastics Economy (NPE) Global Commitment to reduce plastic waste. It also has taken a Group membership with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to help address the environmental impact of palm oil.
As part of our commitments to promote sustainable and responsible Own Brand products, A.S. Watson has taken a group membership to the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (“RSPO”), a leading organisation promoting social and environmental compliance in the palm oil industry.
Sustainable palm oil has been introduced in various Own Brand products such as Kruidvat and Superdrug Brands. As a part of our strategy, we are expanding the selection of Own Brand products to be produced with RSPO-certified palm oil, offering more sustainable choices to our customers.
A.S. Watson is a signatory of the New Plastic Economy Global Commitment and pledges to reduce the overall impact of its own brand packaging by:
• Eliminating unnecessary packaging by 2030, avoiding over-packaging and phasing out PVC
• Targeting to use a minimum of 20% recycled plastic content in plastic packaging by 2025 , if supply permits it
• Promoting packaging that is more recyclable or reusable
Kruidvat is ranked 12th amongst 176 brands across Netherlands and perceived as one of the most sustainable brand in the region according to the latest Sustainable Brand Index™, the Europe’s largest brand study on sustainability conducted by SB Insight.
