To showcase commitment to sustainability and community engagement, Honasa Consumers releases its first-ever social impact report

8 May 2024: Honasa Consumer Limited, a prominent player in India’s beauty and personal care industry, has unveiled its inaugural impact report titled ‘Driven By Purpose’. This comprehensive report, evaluated by Aspire Impact Ratings Pvt. Ltd., underscores the company’s steadfast dedication to social and environmental causes while emphasizing its commitment to responsible governance. Through a diverse array of purpose-driven brands, Honasa endeavors to foster a sustainable future by seamlessly integrating environmentally conscious practices and socially impactful initiatives into its operations.

The report meticulously outlines the substantial impacts of various purpose-driven endeavors, spanning economic development, environmental stewardship, and community empowerment. These initiatives have sparked positive transformations across 14 states and 2 Union Territories in India, promoting sustainable growth and delivering transformative societal benefits.

Mamaearth’s Plant Goodness initiative stands out as a prime example, focusing on afforestation and supporting farmer livelihoods. In partnership with the Sankalptaru Foundation, Honasa has planted 500,000 trees and empowered 581 farmers, foreseeing an annual fruit yield of over 10,000 tons and a potential revenue surpassing INR 20 crore. This initiative has also resulted in significant environmental benefits, including the sequestration of 250,000 tons of carbon, the production of 500,000 tons of oxygen annually, and the greening of 3,500 acres of land.

Furthermore, Mamaearth’s Plastic Positive initiative has successfully recycled 8311 Metric tonnes of plastic, showcasing a commitment to environmental sustainability. The Derma Co’s collaboration with Bhumi NGO has led to the implementation of The Young Scientist Program, enriching over 10,000 underprivileged children with practical science education and yielding a remarkable 42% increase in science assessment scores.

Aqualogica’s Fresh Water for All initiative, in collaboration with the Watershed Organisation Trust, addresses the pressing issue of clean drinking water accessibility in remote areas. By installing water tanks in four villages, this initiative has provided 496 households with easy access to clean water, saving over 400 collective hours daily previously spent on water collection activities.

The Bblunt Shine Academy, launched in collaboration with the Sambhav Foundation, has empowered over 10,000 women across 11 states by offering training and certification in hair styling. Through a combination of online and offline courses conducted by master trainers, this initiative promotes skill development and financial independence among participants.

Speaking on the report launch, Varun Alagh, co-founder and CEO of Honasa Consumer Limited, commented, “We crafted Honasa with a vision to go beyond products and strived to create a greater impact on the lives of our consumers and society at large. Within our diverse portfolio of purpose-driven ‘Me and We’ brands, each element embodies a commitment to our consumers, our communities, and our planet.
