Following the success of previous editions, Organic Monitor is taking its Sustainable Cosmetics Summit to Latin America. Taking place in São Paulo city on 24-26th September, the summit tackles major business & technical issues associated with green cosmetics and sustainability. Focal themes of the inaugural Latin American edition are biodiversity & ethical sourcing, sustainable ingredients and marketing best-practices.
São Paulo was chosen as the location of the Latin American edition because of the growing importance of Brazil. As well as having the third largest cosmetics market in the world, the country is considered the most biologically diverse on the planet. The summit aims to tackle major sustainability issues the beauty industry faces in the region. Mr. Amarjit Sahota, President of Organic Monitor, quotes ‘in this first edition, we aim to share sustainability best-practices in Latin America, as well as highlight areas for development’. Some of the new sustainability topics that will be covered in the summit will be biodiversity & benefit sharing, social impacts (CSR & corporate philanthropy), green chemistry & formulations, and marketing pitfalls / challenges.
