Our cosmetics are made Cajamar, near São Paulo, Brazil, where the headquarters and factory of Natura are. Once checked and packaged, products are transported in France either by boat or by plane. True to our commitment to sustainable development, we favor the more sober maritime transport, less energy and more virtuous in terms of greenhouse gas emissions.
Each year, we set a goal of progression. In 2012, 65% of our imports were made by boat, against 51% in 2011 while maintaining the objective of ensuring the best availability for our Consultants and our customers.
Finally in July 2011, we also sought to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment by optimizing transport between the port of Le Havre and our warehouse in Paris. Containers landed at the port of Le Havre are now transported by barges on the Seine River to the port of Paris Gennevilliers. This economical river transportation fuel (40% of fuel consumption and less) has allowed us to avoid the dismissal of three tons of CO2.
