Avon Products, Inc.

Avon Products, Inc. recognized the beauty of "corporate responsibility" nearly a century before the term became part of the cultural lexicon. From the very beginning, in 1886, forward-thinking Avon founder David H. McConnell committed his company "to meet fully the obligations of corporate citizenship by contributing to the well-being of society and the environment in which it functions" - words that still guide the company more than 125 years later.

Avon is committed to the mission to "do well by doing good," managing its business enterprise to the highest standards while leveraging its unique capacity to mobilize and engage people to be agents of change in their lives, communities and the world.

Avon's Corporate Responsibility reflects the three pillars of Avon's corporate mission and drives the focus of the company's corporate responsibility efforts and achievements:

Healthy Forests, Beautiful World

Avon's global reforestation initiative, Healthy Forests, Beautiful World, formerly known as Hello Green Tomorrow, raises funds through the sale of special products by Avon Sales Representatives and on Avon’s eCommerce sites to help end deforestation. Avon has donated more than $6.8 million for global reforestation since 2010 to The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to support the rainforests in Brazil and Indonesia, two of the most critically endangered ecosystems. Both of these forests are important for mitigating climate change, supporting biodiversity and providing for the health and economic well-being of millions of women, families and communities worldwide.

With more than 6 million Representatives around the world, Avon has a unique capacity to engage and mobilize people to help end deforestation, as it also does for the issues of breast cancer and violence against women. As a direct seller that relies on its brochure and printed materials, the issue of deforestation is especially important to Avon.

Avon Foundation for Women

The collective power of Avon's worldwide network of Avon Representatives, employees, supporters and donors creates an incredible philanthropic force. The Avon Foundation, founded in 1955 with the goal of improving women’s lives, today is proud to be the largest corporate philanthropy dedicated to women's causes globally, with a focus on the issues of breast cancer and violence against women.
