Our Progress

We are consolidating our organizational footprints for scopes 1, 2 & 3 with the Carbon Trust to determine our Green House Gas inventory baseline, to ultimately set and approve Science Based Targets in line with 1.5°C trajectory. (to be concluded in Q4/21).

We are supporting PlenaMata portal, through a partnership between Natura, MapBiomas and InfoAmazônia, which gathers data and indicators of deforestation and initiatives for the conservation and regeneration of Amazon biome.

The purpose of this portal is to engage governments, private sector, civil society organizations and local communities in support of the fight against deforestation and successful conservation and environmental regeneration initiatives (to be launched in Q3/21 at http://plenamata.eco).

We are part of the SBTN’s (Science Based Target Network) Corporate Engagement to apply the initial guidance on science-based targets for nature (to be concluded in Q3/22).

Our Progress

We are currently setting the base line while respecting the privacy legislation in main markets (to be concluded in Q1/22).

We will develop a comparable measure of income among our consultants in 10 key geographies, and will benchmark against the living wage, with a view to increasing earnings (to be concluded in Q4/22).

Natura has been nominated as Chair of the Ethics Committee at WFDSA (World Federation of Direct Selling Association), to advocate for a strong direct selling/social selling model.

Over the past year we have charted each Group company’s current policy and practice related to human rights and mapped these against the best practice captured by the United Nations Guiding Principles (UN GP) ( and drafted policy (to be launched in Q4/21).

Our Progress

The development of the LCA (life Cycle Analysis) tool methodology that combines an integrated life cycle assessment of environmental impacts to measure and guide our choices will start in the 2Q21 and will be concluded in Q4/22.

We are committed to explore disruptive regenerative solutions that capture more carbon than its emission, conserve and restore biodiversity and ecosystems and generate quality of life through means that are just and inclusive for all.
