Avon Pushes for Planet-Kind Beauty

Avon meant every stage of their approach when they declared they were doing beauty differently.

Avon has been challenging the industry in the Philippines for 44 years and over 135 years, and is on a long-term sustainability journey. The worldwide beauty firm is using cruelty-free technologies to perfect every formula, switching to recyclable packaging, and pushing for community welfare by prioritizing the environment.

As part of Natura &Co, Avon adheres to a 2030 Commitment to Life that aims to achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2030. And in its efforts toward sustainability, the global beauty brand announced Its first solar-powered facility.

Avon, in collaboration with Spectrum, a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), inaugurated the solar rooftop project in its manufacturing plant in Calamba Laguna last April 22, in celebration of Earth Day.

The solar installation has generated over 250,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy since its completion, reducing the beauty company's carbon impact by 160 tonnes. During its first year of operation, it is predicted to create roughly 841,100 kWh of clean energy, nearly quadrupling the carbon footprint reduction to 599 tonnes or the equivalent of 329,315 trees planted.

"Taking care of our planet is also similar to taking care of the people because the people will be the ones who will benefit when we take care of our planet. We want to highlight that this is the first solar project of Avon, not just in the Philippines, but internationally," says Tirso Antonio B. Pereja, Avon Products Mfg., Inc. Head of Operations, during the inaugural ceremony.

With its installation of solar panels, Avon joins the roster of international and local companies that engaged Meralco and Spectrum as part of their sustainability journey.
