Our Philosophy & Targets
NIVEA has been a companion in people’s lives for decades, caring for healthy beautiful skin, and nurturing people from the outside in. We are humbled by that trust and want to live up to it by extending our care for the skin to the protection and preservation of our planet.
We strive to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible by rethinking our packaging, formulation, and production methods. To achieve this, NIVEA has set ambitious climate targets on a company level that are in line with latest climate science.
At NIVEA, we respect and love nature. Our care for the planet also includes the protection of animals that depend on and maintain our ecosystems. We are convinced that animal testing is unnecessary to prove the effectiveness and safety of skincare products.
We make sure that everything we put into our NIVEA products is safe and healthy to use – and we strive to use responsibly sourced renewable materials wherever possible to move toward a more sustainable future. When using natural resources, we also pay attention to the cultivation of these plants.
Naturally, our commitment to protect our planet and our communities also extends to the way we produce NIVEA skincare: We strive to decrease our CO2 footprint by saving energy, generating less waste, and using water responsibly.
