About the summit

The aim of the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit is to encourage sustainability in the beauty industry by bringing together key stake-holders and debate major issues in a high-level forum. Launched in 2009, the summit now takes place in the major geographic regions of the world.

The European edition will take place on 25-28th October 2021, CET time. The North American virtual edition is taking place online on 21-24th June, whilst Latin American and Asia-Pacific editions will be hosted in 2022.
