We’re committed to developing your favorite John Frieda products to provide the highest level of safety and performance with the lowest negative impact on people, animals and planet.
Sustainable Formulation Design Vision.
By 2025 – strive to have all our products be safe for land & water through formulas which are made with biodegradable ingredients and will not harm aquatic life.
Responsible Ingredient Selection.
Our sustainable formulation design vision guides our ingredient selection. We use responsibly sourced ingredients that are aligned to our standards with respect to natural systems, animal welfare, human health and human rights.
Packaging that supports ZERO WASTE, tackling the impact of plastic head on and using innovation to reduce our use.
For us, packaging is more than just a means of bringing our great products to you. We take great pride in providing product packaging that visually delight, are easy for consumers to use and are made with our planet in mind.
When it comes to Sustainability, our goal is to offer packaging which brings to the marketplace innovative packaging materials, designs and system that support people in attaining a ZERO WASTE lifestyle. Our 4 key goals:
Reduce: By 2025, reduce fossil fuel-based virgin plastic by 30% compared to 2017. By 2025, minimize the amount of plastic packaging used via innovative designs.
Replace: By 2025, strive to incorporate 50% Post-Consumer Recycled Materials in our plastic packaging and use responsibly sourced wood fiber materials.
Reuse: By 2025, innovate with new reuse and refill formats that help consumers re-use their original packaging many times.
Recycle: By 2025, strive to have all of our packaging be designed for recycling. By 2023, eliminate use of black plastic.
Production that is respectful of resources, with ongoing efforts to reduce carbon emissions, water consumption and waste generation.
Our production is all about doing more and better with less. Every step along the way, we strive to be respectful of resources, with ongoing efforts to reduce carbon emissions, water consumption and waste generation.
To reduce the environmental impact of production is a massive task, because it is necessary to transform not just one manufacturing module, but a vast sum of small steps along the process. This does not stop us though – we evaluate and measure our impact on the planet and look for ways to minimize overconsumption and inefficiencies in energy, water and waste.
We replaced fossil fuels with green forms of energy – since 2019, all our US operated factories and owned offices are using 100% renewable energy*. We have a set plan how to reduce wase to landfills to zero by 2025. In the US, we even generate our own solar energy, which we aim to expand at every opportunity.
We actively support water conservation by reducing full lifecycle H2O use via reformulations & formats and by 2026, we strive towards implementing a new wastewater treatment technology to recover and reuse wastewater. Following our energy reduction plan, we have reduced our yearly energy consumption by 14%, our water consumption by 23% and our wastewater volume by 19% since 2010.
