Developing a Sustainability Supply Chain Strategy in Cosmetics

eucalyptus scaled 1


An early stage, high-growth cosmetics and personal care brand desired to define an authentic, purpose-based supply chain sustainability strategy, alongside its broader sustainability goals.

This strategy aimed to build a future-facing operating model and to power the next phase of growth for the business by enabling visibility into their supply chain.


To address this need, Anthesis developed a variety of a reports to better contextualize the current state, including:

  • A research insights report
  • A current state assessment
  • Peer benchmarking
  • Stakeholder views
  • An organization-wide supply chain assessment

Leveraging these insights, we built a strategic framework with actionable roadmaps across four priority areas for internal teams and the supply chain.


Through Anthesis’ Activator Journey and Supply Chain Strategy, this engagement identified four key impact areas, with an associated governance model, to drive sustainability and operational growth for the business. Clear actions, KPIs, internal owners, and timelines to address risks, increase supply chain sustainability and resilience, and optimize sustainable business operations were also defined to ensure progress.

We are the world’s leading purpose driven, digitally enabled, science-based activator. And always welcome inquiries and partnerships to drive positive change together.
