Climate action at cosnova – anchoring SBTs within the company

It is hard to imagine European drugstores without the beauty products of essence and CATRICE. The success story of cosnova, a company based in Sulzbach im Taunus, began more than 20 years ago when the married couple Christina Oster-Daum and Javier González founded the family business. Today, cosnova sells products in over 80 countries, employs 700 people worldwide, and is the European market leader by volume in decorative cosmetics. Contributing to a sustainable future has been firmly anchored in cosnova’s philosophy since its founding, and the company continues to drive social and ecological issues.

Through its zero-waste goals, strict ingredient policies, and work with NGOs to stem the tides of plastic, cosnova has been driving environmental improvements for many years. For example, the company is reducing its waste, improving the recyclability of its products, and mitigating its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. But how should these emission reductions be evaluated? Where can more reductions be made? How can it be ensured that more GHG emissions are saved year after year? And what else can be done in addition to reducing emissions? cosnova wanted to be able to answer these questions clearly.
