The A.S. Watson 2030 Sustainability Vision focuses on engaging local communities and our suppliers in environmental protection awareness programmes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving energy efficiency.

We promote sustainable choices that reduce the environmental footprint of our products, by providing refill options to customers, a better selection of ingredients and packaging materials from sustainable sources.

    • Pledging that 33% of its suppliers by emissions covering purchased goods and services, upstream transportation and distribution will have science-based targets (SBTs) by 2027
  • Plastic: Eliminating unnecessary packaging by 2030, avoiding over-packaging and phasing out PVC. Ensure that we use a minimum of 20% recycled plastic content in plastic packaging by 2025
