Welcome to CTPA's Sustainability Hub
CTPA's strategic objective to deliver the CTPA Sustainability Strategy, 'Driving towards a Net Positive Cosmetics Industry' brings industry together, working in partnership with others to deliver short, medium and long-term outputs. Together with the CTPA's Sustainability Committee, we continue to build our understanding of key issues, identifying and engaging key partners and highlighting how industry is collaborating to act as a hub for system-wide change to help all companies, members and non-members, to work towards this ambitious goal.
The CTPA Sustainability Hub is a vital resource providing definitions, legal requirements and related guidance, both external and from CTPA, to help steer companies of all sizes towards making their own roles, products and businesses more sustainable.
