Buying sustainability certified raw materials is a good way to ensure that the cultivation and production is environmentally friendly and that employees are treated fairly and receive fair pay. We also continuously collect information on how the brand owners in our product portfolio are meeting their sustainability challenges, in order to identify and communicate about the product categories whose sustainability work is not covered by a third-party verified sustainability standard.
