Ethical sourcing of natural ingredients to be discussed on 19-20 June 2018 in Paris

This 19-20 June in Paris, companies from the beauty, food, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors will be coming together for the UEBT [1] Beauty of Sourcing with Respect Conference to discuss consumer demand for natural and ethical sourced ingredients, and new rules for companies on how they research and develop substances from nature, including how businesses share benefits with countries, local communities and indigenous peoples.

The conference will also launch the 10th edition of the UEBT Biodiversity Barometer, a special piece of research that spans a decade and has included interviews with 50,000 consumers asking what they know and understand about our planet’s biodiversity, and what they expect from brands.

Anne Bahr Thompson, author of the 2017 book Do Good: Embracing Brand Citizenship to Fuel Both Purpose and Planet, and a top thought leader who has worked with brands from Pepsi to Microsoft to UNICEF will provide the keynote address, challenging companies to embrace a vision of brand citizenship that deeply respects people, plants and animals.

The conference will also bring policymakers from China, India and South Africa for an important exchange with business leaders on the shape and evolution of new and robust rules that regulate how companies tap into the wealth of ingredients found in nature, including how a business must research and develop new products derived from plants, animals or microbes.

The agenda also includes sessions on technological developments, ABS [2] legislation in various countries, certifying credible company programs, involving smallholders in specialty ingredient supply chains, and sector-wide approaches to improving supply chains.

Speakers include representatives from an Amazon community, Natura Cosmetics, Weleda, L’Oréal, Symrise, Martin Bauer, Capua 1880, Seppic, Plant Advanced Technologies, Rainforest Alliance, Sederma, WWF, Global Nature Fund, Sustainable Food Lab, Tatil Design, United Nations Convention on Biological Resources, and ABS experts and authorities from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
