At Amatus, we are committed to creating a sustainable and responsible beauty industry that protects the natural world and enriches our communities. We believe that it is our responsibility to minimise our environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable and socially equitable future. This statement outlines our sustainability journey, highlighting our goals, success criteria, and specific actions we are taking to drive positive change within the beauty industry.
Why Sustainability Matters to Us:
As a growing company in the beauty industry, we recognise the need to address the industry's significant environmental impact. With an estimated 120 billion units of packaging created every year and as little as 9% of plastic waste ever being recycled, we are determined to be part of the solution, not the problem. Our commitment to sustainability is a fundamental aspect of our business and our values, and we strive to ensure that our practices reflect our dedication to a greener and more equitable world.
- Reduce waste and embrace circular economy principles.
- Improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
- Implement sustainable sourcing practices.
- Promote responsible transportation and distribution.
- Engage with stakeholders and raise awareness of sustainable beauty practices.
Our Success Criteria:
We will measure our success by the progress we make towards achieving our goals and the positive impact we create in the beauty industry. Our success will be reflected in increased use of recycled and recyclable materials, lower carbon emissions, improved sourcing practices, and widespread engagement with our stakeholders on sustainability issues.
Our Sustainability Story:
We have already made strides in our sustainability journey, with all our products being sold in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging.

Moving forward, we will continue to innovate and implement sustainable practices throughout our operations.
