Arcade Beauty commits to decarbonation

Aware of the weight of its activity on the environment, Arcade Beauty takes its responsibilities in the fight against climate change, and pursues an ambitious decarbonization plan.

During its participation to the Convention des Entreprises pour le Climat (CEC), Arcade Beauty wrote its 2030 roadmap. This roadmap is based on 2 fundamental questions:

  • How to contribute to the beauty and well-being of all, while reducing the waste of samples and cosmetic products?
  • How can we offer consumers eco-designed packs that are distributed wisely and then collected after use to be recycled?

A 1.5°C trajectory

Arcade Beauty has recorded its SBTI 1.5°C commitment. Thus, the group is concretizing its decarbonization actions. Its objective is to reduce its CO2 emissions by 3000 tons by the end of the year.

The calculation of the footprint is based on 3 scopes: energy and electricity consumption (scopes 1 and 2), indirect emissions upstream and downstream of the company such as raw materials and packaging, transport... (scope 3).

Major challenges throughout the chain

The work carried out is based on 3 major axes:

  • Manage energy (reduction, conversion and optimization)
  • Involve partner suppliers in an optimization process (CSR questionnaire integrating EcoVadis, carbon footprint and decarbonization actions)
  • Act in a systematic logic of eco-design

Ecodesign in 4 Rs 

Arcade Beauty has integrated the 4 R's in its ecodesign strategy:

  • Reduce (weight of packs, number of layers, over-packaging...)
  • Recycle/Recycled: to date 80 % of the proposed technologies are recyclable or include a share of recycled material
  • Renew (gradual replacement of plastic by paper), development of compostable technologies
  • Reuse (development of reusable packs & charging solutions)

Some examples in figures

The recyclable paper and monoresin bags allow CO2 savings of 58 % for the paper and 32 % for the monoresin.

Recyclable secondary packaging allows a CO2 saving of 80 % for paper and 74 % for monoresin.

In the Retail product range, recyclable 3Dpouch in PE offers significant environmental benefits (less 19 % of CO2, and on average less 50 % of material weight).

Arcade Beauty is working on the ISCC+ certification of its factories in order to promote the use of plastic from chemical recycling (PE and PP in particular).
