Our commitment to sustainable development allows us to put our actions into a strategy in line with the expectations of our customers and society, all backed by ambitious goals.
We have calculated the carbon footprint of our products based on our supply chain, industry standards and best practices and use this information to purchase carbon credits using blockchain technology, an advanced database mechanism that allows transparent information sharing for recording transactions, tracking assets, and building trust.
A first in beauty, Opalore secures stock in multiple projects that are certified and verified by Gold Standard to de-risk and diversify our carbon offset portfolio, including investments that support gender equality, life-on-land, good health and wellbeing, and quality education.
Developed under the leadership of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and other NGOs, Gold Standard is a voluntary carbon offset program focused on progressing the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG’s) and ensuring that the projects we support really do achieve the CO² reductions and co-benefits they claim to achieve for immediate and long-term climate action.
Protecting Earth's Natural Resources
Opalore’s state-of-the-art biotechnological ingredients are known to minimise the impact on our environment. Chosen for their proven efficacy and biocompatibility, they offer a purer, higher quality and more consistent alternative to ingredients grown and harvested on an industrial scale.
Many of our actives are designed using the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry which exclude undesirable ingredients, prevent waste, use less energy and biodegradable processes to protect our ecosystems.
Conscious of the choices we make and our impact on the environment, we are constantly reviewing and evolving our practices to become the most considered and considerate brand we can be. It is a work-in-progress as we aim to do and be better each year, striving to improve our packaging, minimise waste and offset business operations so that by 2030 we can reach net-zero.
