We measure our impact for the whole manufacturing process – our goal is to create products with a positive environmental impact.

2019 Results

The main objectives set in 2018 and the results obtained in 2019.

Offset the CO2eq emissions of our major events to make them carbon neutral

The goal has been achieved. The CO2eq emissions of the main corporate events in 2019 were calculated and offset. These involved more than 5,000 people in total: World Wide Hair Tour, Tribe Event, Hair on Stage Bologna, Hair on Stage Manila and the National Meeting of Italian Hair Care Agents. A total of 322.4 tons of CO2eq were offset, resulting from the energy consumption of the event venues, the participants’ travel and the energy consumption of the hotels where the participants stayed.

Offset CO2eq emissions from our staffs’ commute to work

The goal has been achieved. We have offset 353.5 tons of CO2eq resulting from staffs’ commute to work at Davines Village, measured through a questionnaire prepared by the Sustainability Department for everyone who works at the Village. The collected data has also made it possible to estimate that 34.1 tons of CO2eq emissions were saved in 2019 thanks to smart working and will allow for the future the development of solutions that further reduce the environmental impact of the commute to work.

Offset all CO2eq emissions from the lines on which we applied the LCA analysis

The goal has been achieved. We have offset emissions from the entire life cycle (excluding the use phase) of A single shampoo and Mask and Essential Haircare lines. Total offset emissions amount to 3,681.82 tons of CO2eq. Use of LCA analysis is extremely important to identify the components and life stages of products with a larger ecological footprint and, consequently, to identify possible reduction measures to limit their environmental impact.

HOW DO WE CRAFT OUR PRODUCTS

A product’s positive impact is determined by many factors that arise throughout the course of its life, from its creation to its production, distribution, use and, finally, disposal.

Life cycle impact assessment

We measure our products’ sustainability at every stage of their life cycle, using two different assessment methods: the Strategic Life Cycle Assessment (SLCA) for a qualitative assessment, and the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for a quantitative assessment.

Products (based on turnover) to which the SLCA analysis has been applied

Choosing the ingredients

We select environmentally friendly ingredients that are safe, effective, high-quality and preferably obtained from organic and/or ethical farming that protects local biodiversity.

Natural ingredients*

naturalita_ingredienti

*Since 2018 we have been using our own criteria for classifying ingredients of natural origin, which does not allow any raw material that has a small amount of synthetic content or that does not exclusively include ingredients obtained from sustainable processes.

Biodegradability of ingredients*

biodegradabilita_ingredienti

*We use the OECD 301 method, Regulation (EC) No 648/2004, to determine our ingredients’ biodegradability.

Choosing the packaging

We design packaging with the aim of limiting its volume and weight to a minimum and strongly
encouraging its reuse or recovery, including through recycling, always guaranteeing safety and hygiene, with the lowest possible environmental impact.

CO2EQ EMISSIONS – HOW WE REDUCE AND OFFSET OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

At an environmental level, the main challenge facing our planet is the climate change that threatens the resilience of the Earth’s ecosystems and human survival. Based on this awareness, the Davines Group, together with over 500 B Corps worldwide, committed to achieving “net zero emissions” by 2030.
This goal requires us to constantly map our emissions and to reduce them as much as possible. We will continue to offset the quantity of CO2eq that cannot be zeroed through EthioTrees, a proprietar reforestation project.

Our methodology

We follow the guidelines of an internationally recognized standard, the “GHG protocol”, which breaks down the company’ emissions into three areas:

Scope 1
direct emissions from proprietary sources or sources directly controlled by the company;

Scope 2
indirect emissions from consumption of electricity, steam and heat;

Scope 3
indirect emissions that do not fall within scopes 1 and 2 and that result from other activities that take place outside the Group’s production plant and offices.

LE SEDI DEL GRUPPO DAVINES SONO “CARBON NEUTRAL”

CO2 and CO2eq

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a climate-altering gas that naturally occurs in our atmosphere; its very high concentration contributes to global warming. However, CO2 is not the only gas responsible for the greenhouse effect, which is also caused, for example, by nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). CO2 equivalent (CO2eq) describes the impact of greenhouse gases in a single unit. For any quantity and type of greenhouse gas, CO2eq indicates the amount of CO2 that would have an equivalent impact on global warming.

Our results to date

100% of the products that leave our warehouses have CO2eq-offset packaging.

All the Group’s offices are carbon neutral (100% scope 1 + 2) thanks to reduction of our emissions and offsetting of residual emissions.

-47.7% emissions (scope 1 + 2) compared to 2018 for the Parma office and manufacturing plant, mainly due to the use of biomethane rather than gas from fossil-fuel sources.

34 ton CO2eq saved thanks to smart working at the main office in Parma.
