Responsibility hero

Our heart beats for everyone in this world

… that’s our promise. We love to produce fabulous cosmetics that make your heart beat a little faster. It inspires enthusiasm and is fun. It lets you unleash your creativity and personality.

We want to get a little better every day and are continuously working on having a positive influence on the lives of others – in our company, in our neighbourhood and with our partners along our value chain. To us, this also includes treating the environment with respect. For a healthy planet. Because we are convinced that only a sustainably operating company can be successful in the long-term.

The pillars of our corporate responsibility strategy

At cosnova, we want to make a positive contribution to protecting our planet and all people and have set ourselves ambitious goals to achieve this. A holistic corporate responsibility and company strategy is at the heart of this - consisting of 5 strategic pillars:

What we have achieved

We have been pursuing a comprehensive sustainability strategy for several years now and know that we need staying power to reach our ambitious goals – but we have also already managed to achieve many improvements, as can be seen in our chronicle.

With our Sustainability Report 2021, we show where we stand. Spanning our corporate responsibility pillars, we pick up highlights, share progress, and provide insights into the cosnova world, and how we are striving to make it more environmentally friendly every day. The report is available for download in German and English.


In our efforts to become a little more sustainable every day, we also collaborate with strong partners who are just as committed to the cause as we are. This way, we can achieve our ambitious goals together. As a partner of WWF Germany, for example, we are working hard on protecting the oceans by promoting the recycling infrastructures in Southeast Asia.

Who we are: The CR team at cosnova

Sustainability is not a project, but an ongoing transformation of the entire company. To this end, we have a dedicated team of experts who are paving the way for the future in close collaboration with the specialist departments and the executive management.
