The L’OCCITANE Group is proud to announce that its innovative global British skincare brand, ELEMIS, is now a Certified B Corporation™. This marks a new milestone in the Group’s global journey to achieving B Corp™ certification.
To certify as a B Corp, a rigorous assessment of the whole business is carried out to meet high standards of verified social and environmental performance. For L’OCCITANE Group, pursuing certification signifies being part of a global movement of businesses that share a collective vision of an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy.
André Hoffmann, Vice-Chairman and CEO of the L’OCCITANE Group, said: ‘I congratulate ELEMIS on this outstanding achievement which demonstrates how the brand and its people strive at every level for a more equitable, sustainable and inclusive world.’
Séan Harrington, Co-Founder & CEO of ELEMIS said: ‘We are proud of our B Corp certification, a holistic assessment of a company's social and environmental impact across all of its stakeholders. In our view, companies have a responsibility to bring meaningful, positive benefits to society.’
The L’OCCITANE Group’s ambition is to be fully B Corp certified across the company during the course of 2023. As a Group with a growing portfolio of entrepreneurial beauty brands spanning five continents, a profound verification process has been required in order to achieve certification. This represents a collaboration across functions and geographies and shows where and how the company can continuously progress to drive positive change.
