Our Future-Fit Pioneer commitment…

The Body Shop believes in business as a force for good. This underpins everything we do, and is central to our company Purpose: to fight for a fairer, more beautiful world.

Today we are proud to announce our commitment to becoming a Future-Fit Business. With the support of Future-Fit Foundation we will play our part in creating a world that is environmentally restorative, socially just and economically inclusive.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed huge inequalities in our societies and an unprecedented global reduction in human activity this year has helped the climate emergency mean more, to more people. From sourcing ingredients, to product manufacture, to energy use in stores and offices – we will take a holistic view towards identifying and eliminating all our negative impacts.

We will not just take from nature, we’ll give back too. We will gather everything we need to make our products and run our business in the most respectful and low-impact way we can. Beyond this ‘do no harm’ approach, we are driven to create positive impacts in our industry and beyond. We will work closely with our suppliers, partners and the wider community to push for broader systems change, and to have a restorative effect on the communities and ecosystems we rely upon.

As a Future-Fit Pioneer, we want to lead by example. We commit to publicly sharing our progress towards this goal with an annual Statement of Progress.
