NIVEA feels it is our responsibility to protect our beautiful planet because it is not only our home but also the home of millions of animal species, which rely on balanced ecosystems, such as forests, rivers, and savannahs.
In addition to making sure that we source our plant-based ingredients harmoniously with nature, NIVEA’s parent company, Beiersdorf, also aims to protect ecosystems with particularly high and unique biodiversity.
Our first ecosystem initiative is located on the island of Borneo in Malaysia. We are working with local partners to protect wildlife habitats in Tabin, since this region is home to many rare species. The aim over the next five years is to stabilize the populations of endangered species, such as the rare Borneo elephant and the orangutan.
To achieve this goal, we will continue promoting sustainable palm oil production and end deforestation. By 2025, all palm oil farmers and a total area of 20,000 hectares in this region will be certified according to the internationally recognized RSPO standard (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil).
