Led by Avon, the #IsolatedNotAlone campaign teamed up with several organizations to raise awareness of the increase in domestic violence as a consequence of isolation measures that leave victims at home with abusers. The campaign signposted support for those at risk, reaching 200 million people via our businesses’ social media channels.
The Avon Foundation also committed US$1 million to domestic violence support groups around the world that focus on direct impact, grassroots initiatives, taking Avon’s total donations to tackle gender-based violence to more than US$ 4 million in 2020.
The campaign also included an open letter to global governments to spotlight the issue and expand funding and resources to deal with the increase in violence.

In 2020, the Natura Institute completed a decade of activities in Brazil and initiated its expansion to the countries in Hispanic Latin America in which Natura operates. Each country will maintain strategies aligned with local needs, but the goal of promoting improvements in public education and offering educational measures for the Natura Beauty Consultants will be shared by all. To achieve this goal, the institute draws on funds generated by Crer Para Ver, a line of non-cosmetic products commercialized by Natura and by the consultants since 2014 whose earnings are channeled into initiatives to improve education.
In 2020, for the third year running, the Natura Institute achieved record revenues with the commercialization of Crer Para Ver line products. The total for Brazil and Hispanic Latin America was R$79.3 million, almost 50% higher than in 2019. The results achieved attest to the importance of the work and the priority focuses of the initiative: 1. literacy at the right age; 2. quality learning in secondary education; 3. engagement with public authorities and the third sector to drive other priority educational agendas; and 4. incentives for the education and mobilization of consultants.

Temos um forte legado de apoio às comunidades em que trabalhamos e para as quais trabalhamos. A generosidade estende-se a toda a empresa, mas agora somos mais públicos e intencionais com a nossa filantropia do que nunca.
Estamos empenhados em retribuir mais do que recebemos. Através da Fundação Aesop, estabelecemos parcerias com instituições de caridade que trabalham com comunidades sub-representadas, enfatizando a narração de histórias e a alfabetização. A nossa ambição é alargar o apoio para além dos meios monetários e proporcionar relações duradouras.
Durante 2022, a Fundação Aesop continuará com o trabalho realizado durante 30 anos, aumentando a eficiência e o alcance do nosso impacto social. Isto começa internamente com um maior envolvimento dos colaboradores – e externamente através da identificação de mais parcerias com organizações de caridade para trabalhar com todo o mundo.
