Join us for this interactive webinar on Thursday 14 January 2021 between 12.30 and 14.30 (GMT) as the environmentalist and writer, Jonathon Porritt, Dr Sally Uren, Chief Executive of Forum for the Future, John Chave, Director General of Cosmetics Europe, Graham McMillan, Principle at Teneo and Dr. Emma Meredith, Director-General at CTPA explore key current and upcoming global challenges and how the cosmetics industry must adapt.
The UK Government is focussed on driving environmental change and will hold the Presidency of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference from 1-12 November 2021, also known as COP26. COP26 will ensure that climate change and the business imperative to act remains high on the global agenda.
To have sustainability at the heart of a business means identifying how to reduce the impact of human activities on the world’s resources, not causing harm to the environment and putting people and the planet first, ahead of everything else.
On 14 January 2021, CTPA will share a horizon scan, conducted by Forum for the Future for the Association, followed by a stimulating debate aimed at engaging members, the wider industry and external stakeholders to investigate ways of unlocking fundamental challenges faced by the industry, whilst developing more sustainable business practices. The event will also explore exciting initiatives and innovations launched by CTPA as part of its ongoing strategy: 'Driving Towards a Net Positive Cosmetics Industry'.

Why is it important?
Given the increasing legal requirements, rising costs and operational issues, unprepared businesses will be left vulnerable in areas such as sourcing and transportation, energy, water or waste management. By embedding sound practice and policies in good time, businesses will be more prepared to adapt to the changing and challenging landscape.
Together we will debate the most pressing issues such as those around supply chain transparency, the environmental fate of cosmetic products and their packaging, enhancing circularity of resources and informing consumer understanding of how the industry can be a force for good.
Who should attend and why?
The summit is designed to be of significant interest to all involved in the industry from senior management to development and design, through marketing to retail, other sector associations and a wide range of stakeholders from policy makers to campaigners, those working in the areas of recycling and reprocessing as well as journalists and influencers.
