Sustainable Cosmetics Summit Set for New York, March 2010

With sustainability coming to the forefront because of concerns about climate change, and coinciding with the United Nations Climate Change Conference, Organic Monitor announced the details of its new Sustainable Cosmetics Summit.

The Sustainable Cosmetics Summit is a series of international summits that focuses on the leading issues the beauty industry faces concerning sustainability, natural, organic, fair trade and ecological products. The aim of the summit is to encourage sustainability in the beauty industry by bringing together key stake-holders and debate these major issues in a high-level forum.

The summit is scheduled to take place in New York, March 24-26th, 2010.  The summit will cover major industry issues such as natural and organic cosmetic marketing challenges, Eco-labels and standards, ethical sourcing, financing and investment options and technical hurdles.

Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, will once again open an Organic Monitor summit with his opening keynote ‘Inconvenient Truths for the Beauty Industry’. Mike Indursky, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer of Burt’s Bees, will show how sustainability can be integrated into a company’s business ethos. Other papers in the Sustainability Pathways session will look at practical approaches to reduce the environmental impact of cosmetic products.

The summit will consist of four main sessions:

  • Session 1: Sustainability Pathways
  • Session 2: Eco-Labeling and Regulatory Developments
  • Session 3: Best-Practices in Marketing Ethical Cosmetics
  • Session Four: Investment & Formulation Issues

Like previous summits, in attendance will be key stake-holders in the beauty industry that include cosmetic manufacturers, ingredient & raw material suppliers, retailers & distributors, industry organizations & certification agencies, researchers & academics, investors, etc.
