THE GREEN AGENDA Dedicated to the beautiful: Products. People. Planet. As an owner-managed company in the third generation, sustainability is part of the corporate philosophy for BABOR. The Green Agenda contains three main topics: CO2, packaging and ingredients.
BYEBYE CO2 The goal: not only to compensate for CO2, but to actively avoid it.The way: Thanks to green electricity, photovoltaics and climate-neutral green natural gas, production at the headquarters in Aachen has been CO2 neutral since 2014. BABOR has had a climate-neutral corporate carbon footprint and product carbon footprint since 2020. Together with ClimatePartner, BABOR has precisely calculated its CO2 footprint and compensates for all emissions that cannot yet be prevented through its own measures - both in relation to the emissions that the company and its employees produce and in relation to the company's products. In total, BABOR offsets 8,050,770 kg of CO2 - this corresponds to the CO2 emissions of 2300 long-haul flights from Düsseldorf to New York. BABOR offsets its CO2 emissions by subsidizing a wind farm in the Philippines. At the same time, the company promotes the globally active Plastic Bank initiative. In Haiti, Indonesia and the Philippines, people collect plastic from beaches and thereby improve their income. This plastic is recycled as social plastic, so that new products are created from it. With each compensated ton of CO2, BABOR compensates 10 kg of plastic waste at the same time.
GREEN PACKAGING The goal: all BABOR packaging should be 100% recyclable and the consumption of plastic should be reduced by 30%.The way: Even today, BABOR does not use any plastic fillers in its packages and relies on FSC-certified paper whenever it is used. Packaging developers are currently designing the first packaging made from recyclates, avoiding cellophane wrapping whenever possible and rethinking the shipping boxes.
CLEAN INGREDIENTS The goal: All formulations are free of microplastic particles and environmentally critical synthetic polymers. Resource-critical raw materials are converted to certified goods and alternatives.The way: All new formulations are developed free of microplastics and synthetic polymers. Where possible, existing recipes will be converted to alternatives in the course of relaunches by 2023. If necessary, polymers that conserve resources and are environmentally friendly are used instead. Only certified palm oil derivatives are used and their consumption is also reduced.
#BABORLOVESOURPLANET The ambitious project is accompanied and coordinated by a cross-divisional sustainability board. It continuously questions processes and develops initiatives for even more sustainable work. This board was installed in 2020. The sustainable philosophy, however, has a tradition of more than 60 years: BABOR was founded in 1956 as “biomedical natural cosmetics”. Respect for nature is therefore deeply rooted in the BABOR DNA. BABOR was one of the first companies to deal with topics such as wastewater treatment and waste separation. The finished cream has been delivered by a “green” postman for 14 years: thanks to the cooperation with DHL, deliveries are CO2-neutral. For shorter journeys, employees get into the company's own BABOR electric car.In spring 2020, eight bee colonies moved to a BABOR biological reserve in the Eifel.
