DAVINES CONTRIBUTES TO THE CHALLENGE LAUNCHED BY THE UNITED NATIONS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET
In September 2015, the governments of the 193 member states of the United Nations signed the 2030 Agenda, a shared plan for sustainable development to be achieved within 15 years, laid out in 17 objectives named SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

The 2030 Agenda extended a call to action and collaboration to all, from governments to individual citizens, and businesses were asked directly to focus their creative energy and innovation on contributing to sustainable development and the wellbeing of people and the planet.
Davines decided to respond to this invitation.

A CORPORATE STRATEGY IN LINE WITH THE SDGs
In 2016 Davines chose to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), projecting them into its corporate strategy, with the concrete results of its contributions available in the 2018/2019 Sustainability Report.
In 2018, the company set itself a harder challenge by not only committing itself to reaching the SDGs, but also to sharing them with its colleagues and stakeholders. The publication of its book, An Extraordinary Manual to Make the World a Better Place, a collection of 124 ideas to promote the application of SDGs in hair salons, is a concrete support for those who want to improve the world through their work. In a further effort to share the importance of SDGs, the company also organised internal workshops for colleagues and external workshops for B Corp companies.
NEW WAYS TO GRAPHICALLY REPRESENT SDGS
The Davines Group has always challenged itself to find new ways to graphically represent SDGs in order to fuel thoughts and discussion. The graphic* below is inspired by Eastern philosophies and offers a way to holistically reflect on sustainable development objectives. We are fascinated by the Bhutan government’s ideology of Gross National Happiness, and we love to think of happiness as the balance between three realms: the harmony of people with people, the harmony of people with nature, and the harmony of people with the spiritual*.
