COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, April 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shaun Russell, the founder of Skandinavisk, has been elected as Chair of the Supervisory Board of The B Corp Beauty Coalition. He is joined by ten other progressive B Corp leaders as the voting members of the Supervisory Board. The board sets ambitious objectives for their collective action initiative.
The B Corp Beauty Coalition now consists of over 40 Certified B Corporations working in the beauty industry across five continents. The Supervisory Board will be responsible for directing the progress of the current working groups, defining future priorities and initiatives, and publishing the outcomes of the Coalition’s work.
“We march under the banner ‘B Beauty’, and we aim to broaden the meaning of beauty itself, from one focused on the self, to one where the protection of the beauty of nature is held just as important,” said Shaun. “On behalf of all twelve voting members of the Supervisory Board of the B Corp Beauty Coalition, we now proudly take up the torch and commit ourselves to work together to share best practices, pioneer innovation, publish outcomes, and change the beauty industry for good.”
The Coalition initiated three working groups at the start of the year in the areas of ingredient sourcing, greener logistics and responsible packaging, and is already making progress in defining a series of tools, guidance and performance criteria that will benefit the beauty industry as a whole.
Later in the summer, a series of white papers will be published with their initial findings.
