The Body Shop

The Body Shop is a British global beauty brand which believes in business as a force for good. This underpins everything the company does, and is central to its purpose: to fight for a fairer, more beautiful world.

Founded by Dame Anita Roddick in 1976, The Body Shop’s story started with her belief in something revolutionary – that business could be a force for good. This philosophy has underpinned the company since its inception and is central to The Body Shop’s ongoing aim of being the world’s most ethical and sustainable global business. The company currently has a range of over 1,000 products which it sells across 3,000 stores in more than 60 countries.

The Body Shop have vocally engaged with a range of topical issues, such as banning Animal Testing and embracing the Fairtrade initiative. Through their unique Community Trade program, The Body Shop also seek to source quality ingredients and accessories from expert producers across the world, whilst enriching economically vulnerable communities.

Back in 2015, The Body Shop became one of the first three global companies to publicly support our work, and our collaboration since then has proved crucial in the evolution of the Future-Fit Business Benchmark. The Body Shop is part of Natura & Co, and our work together helped to shape the Group’s 2030 sustainability vision, Commitment to Life.
