Sustainability takeaways 2019/20


Founded in 1983, the Davines Group began as a small research lab and has since then grown into an international company - with a presence in over 90 countries - certified by B Corp. But through it all, we've remained a family-owned business, and have been dedicated to creating beautiful products that keep environmental impact and sustainability in mind since 2006. Every year, we release a  Sustainability Report  to illustrate our goals and achievements over the past year. Here's a look at our progress from 2019-2020.


What is a B Corp?

In 2016, Davines became a certified B Corporation for the first time. In 2019 we recertified ourselves improving our score from 99 to 117.4. 
To achieve the B Corp certification, a company must meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. As a B Corp, Davines pursues not only profit but also purpose, building a more inclusive and sustainable economy. 

What is a Benefit Corporation

In 2019, we became a Benefit Corporation as well. When a company acquires the legal status of Benefit Corporation, it reinforces in its by-laws the long-term commitment to operate not only for profit, but also for the benefit of the planet and the community.
