Elizabeth Arden: Toward a More Sustainable Future
More than a century ago, Elizabeth Arden created a company based on her strong belief that "it is the birthright of every woman to be beautiful." That company, which pioneered the American beauty industry with innovative Red Door salons and cosmetics, today operates in more than 100 countries around the world. Yet, as it has grown, its founder's unique vision to partner science with nature in order to develop a customer's finest natural assets has also developed into something much larger with the potential for even greater impact.
Our Commitment to Social and Environmental Responsibility:
As a corporate citizen of the world, Elizabeth Arden recognizes its obligation not only to enhance the lives of its customers, but also to improve, protect and preserve the environment - local and global - wherever we operate. Today, Elizabeth Arden and its partners are working to develop a broad vision of sustainability - taking responsible actions in our business and in the communities where we live and work - that will help ensure a better world today and into the future.
We continue to support focused socially responsible and responsive initiatives while designing, developing and expanding programs to help sustain our environment. Our social responsibility efforts focus on two specific areas where we have already had an impact: causes that seek to benefit women, including promoting self-confidence for those afflicted by cancer, as well as innovative programs that expand educational opportunities in public education for young people.
Working with our partners in manufacturing and distribution around the globe, we are committed to ensuring environmental health and safety while also supporting programs that will help us reduce our environmental footprint. Our actions - and those of our suppliers and partners - also will target reducing, reusing and recycling materials in our production and maximizing efficiencies in our distribution methods. Our goal - as it has always been -- will continue to be to provide a better tomorrow for our customers, employees, neighbors and the world at large. As we seek to add beauty to the lives of our consumers, we seek to do the same for the planet we share with them.
