1. Strategic Analysis and Action

The company declares whether or not it pursues a sustainability strategy. It explains what concrete measures it is undertaking to operate in compliance with key recognised sector-specific, national and international standards.

“Our heart beats for every woman of this world. We offer them the products and brand experience that help them feel more beautiful at any time.”
cosnova's global mission is the basis of our actions. Our trustworthiness, our good reputation and our credibility as a company with its globally operating brands and the resulting convinced, loyal customers provide the foundation for long-term success. To ensure this long-term success, companies must continuously and intensively address the environmental, economic and social impacts of their day-to-day operations. Corporate social and ecological responsibility is very important to us, which is why we strive to combine our economic success across all areas of the company as well as in the value chain with our partners with this social and ecological responsibility. A Code of Conduct based on the ILO Core Labor Standards was developed as the basis for achieving this goal. Our cosnova Sustainability Mission provides the foundation for deriving concrete measures for the three areas mentioned. During the development of the strategy, this was formulated as follows:

“Our heart beats for everyone in the world. And with every heartbeat, we try harder
  ...to have a positive impact on other people’s lives: in our company, 
in our neighborhood and with our partners along our value chain
 … to constantly challenge ourselves to perform even better 

and to lead the way to long-term and sustainable success
… to be a responsible company that treats our planet with respect.

The Sustainability Mission helps us to anchor sustainable ways of thinking in our company, but also to do our part for a global, positive change. In 2016, the cosnova Corporate Responsibility Strategy (Sustainability Strategy) was adopted based on the previously formulated mission. Since then, we have been working continuously on the implementation of the four core topics defined therein. The following concrete measures for the implementation of the strategy were defined:
