Supplier Code of Conduct

We strive to create a positive social and environmental impact by operating ethically, with transparency and integrity across our entire network as set out in our Supplier Code of Conduct.


Respecting and Defending Human Rights

Respecting human rights is a big part of what The Body Shop is about - having pioneered the philosophy that business can be a force for good. Tackling the challenges facing today’s world requires not only systemic change but a ‘just transition’ to ensure that nobody is left behind. The Body Shop’s Human Rights Statement sets out how we respect and defend Human Rights.

We recognise that some materials we use have significant social or environmental concerns. Based on risk assessments, The Body Shop prioritised six supply chains (palm, soy, ethanol, mica, cotton and paper) for full traceability and/or certification by 2025.
