The Coalition members cooperated – guided by the principle of interdependence – through dedicated working groups on packaging, logistics, and ingredients areas, to improve the sustainability standards of the beauty industry.
What is B beauty Navigator
The B Corp Beauty Coalition has introduced the B Beauty Navigator, a tool that aims to promote sustainability in the beauty industry by sharing best practices and useful information on packaging, logistics, and ingredient sourcing. The tool is an open-source and freely accessible library of impartial advice and guidance to help beauty companies and individuals make informed decisions and debunk greenwashing claims.
To achieve this, the Coalition established three working groups in 2022, focusing on packaging, logistics, and ingredients, to collectively raise sustainability standards across the industry. The B Beauty Navigator is the first output of these groups, and it includes guidance and best practices on sustainable packaging, logistics, and ingredient sourcing.
Packaging Evaluation Guide
This provides a glossary of packaging-related concepts and offers guidance on the best and worst sustainable business practices. The Sustainability Certifications and Standards library helps companies navigate the latest standards and certifications released by non-profit and for-profit organizations, while the Plastic Packaging Mapping database assesses the impact of plastic types widely used in the industry.
Greener Logistics Guide
This is a checklist that helps companies and suppliers monitor, track, and improve the environmental impact of their operations based on B Corp criteria.
The product development process would be guided by Ingredient Sourcing through sourcing ingredients. The outcomes of the Ingredient Sourcing working group are under evaluation, and to be published soon.
All the content on the B Beauty Navigator is available on the B Corp Beauty Coalition’s website and is open to companies committed to cooperation, prioritizing, and improving their own sustainability credentials while sharing best practices for the greater good of the industry.
