Beauty + Sustainability 2019-2020

WE'RE USING BUSINESS AS A FORCE FOR GOOD

Founded in 1983, the Davines Group began as a small research lab and has since  grown into an international company — with a presence in over 90 countries —  certified by B Corp. But through it all, we've remained a family-owned business, and have been dedicated to creating beautiful products that keep environmental impact and sustainability in mind since 2006. Every year, we release a  Sustainability Report  to illustrate our goals and achievements over the past year. Here's a look at our progress from 2019-2020.


WHO WE ARE

What is a B Corp?

In 2016, Davines became a certified B Corporation for the first time. In 2019 we recertified ourselves improving our score from 99 to 117.4. To achieve the B Corp certification, a company must meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. As a B Corp, Davines pursues not only profit but also purpose, building a more inclusive and sustainable economy. 

What is a Benefit Corporation

In 2019, we became a Benefit Corporation as well. When a company acquires the legal status of Benefit Corporation, it reinforces in its by-laws the long-term commitment to operate not only for profit, but also for the benefit of the planet and the community.

Community

Mission-oriented partners

Every year our North American office supports mission-oriented partners in our community through volunteering efforts and our 1% For The Planet commitment. One percent of every purchase on our website is donated to a charity for the betterment of our planet and communities.
Over the past year, we have been proud to support several other partners:

Neighbors near our North American office, City Harvest helps to provide food for New Yorkers in need.

A non-profit farm in the Hudson Valley that promotes regenerative agriculture.

We donated to the PBA's COVID-19 Relief Fund to show support to the salon community after the pandemic hit.

We joined other B Corps in the Net Zero 2030 commitment to achieve completely net zero emissions by 2030, including CO2eq emissions that are not directly under our control, but that are still related to our activities (scope 3 ).
