Der Unternehmensbereich Beauty Care hat die Initiative „BeSmarter“ gestartet. Neben einen Fokus auf Recycling konzentriert sich die Initiative auch auf das Wasser als Ressource. Ein Ziel dabei ist es, die Verbraucher für einen verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit der wertvollen Ressource Wasser zu sensibilisieren. Außerdem führt die Verwendung von Wasser mit geringeren Temperaturen zu geringeren CO2-Emissionen.

The Beauty Care business unit has launched the “BeSmarter” initiative. Next to the focus on recycling the initiative puts a particular focus on water as a resource. Thereby, a goal is to create consumer awareness about the responsible use of water as an important resource. Using less hot water also results in less CO2 emissions.
