360° Solutions for an Industry Under the Spotlight
Consumers today demand trust. And, when it comes to beauty or skin care products, they pay special attention.
Proof of Origin: Transparency of product formulations and of the origin of the materials used is an essential step for building trust, and a growing challenge for businesses as the market shifts towards natural-based formulations for natural or clean products. In fact, obtaining information on materials origin and their potential impacts to people and planet is particularly difficult in the context of complex and global supply chains.
Supply Chain Due Diligence: TDi Sustainability expertise is centred around a deep knowledge of mineral supply chains. We work with companies along the entire value chain and across different mineral industries, from mine to market, including mica, talc, zinc, bauxite, rare earths and other natural elements that contribute to effective product formulations. In particular, we help clients to understand the potential risks associated with minerals extraction and production, and to build traceable supply chains that meet consumers demand for formulations that are not only transparent, but also positive to people and the environment.
360° Solutions: We provide expert advice on all aspects of sustainability, from the design of a unique sustainability and responsible sourcing strategy tailored to your organisation, to legal compliance and audit preparation, to supply chain mapping and risk assessment and management, to packaging waste and circularity, to the implementation of community development projects on the ground.
Together, we can make sure that your organisation and your supply chain stand up to scrutiny today and in the future.
Latest Sustainability Trends for the Cosmetics Industry
Today’s cosmetics industry faces increasingly stringent requirements to audit and report on responsible sourcing in supply chains, to ensure fair labour and to address environmental issues of waste, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Waste and Circularity
The industry is witnessing a push towards plastics reduction and a more circular economy, with consumer pressure to reduce packaging and increase the use of recycled or biodegradable materials.
Legislation and Regulations
Increased disclosure by firms around policies and commitments, usually highlighted through reporting and auditing processes. Continuous accountability from businesses highlights the importance of responsible sourcing in supply chains.
Due Diligence in Supply Chains
Complex supply chains generally lack visibility. Material risks are especially associated with components like cobalt and mica, and traceability solutions are essential to ensure transparency and accountability.
The cosmetics and personal care industry accounts for 0.5% of global carbon emissions, or 990 million metric tons of CO2 per year.

Coloured Gemstones Working Group

The CGWG was formed to better understand the risks and opportunities for positive impact in the sourcing and production of coloured gemstones. In collaboration with the members of the CGWG, we developed – and continue to improve – robust and practical learning and guidance resources and due diligence and capacity building tools, for the continuous improvement of businesses of all sizes and at all tiers in the gemstone supply chain.
