While Avon does not have the environmental footprint of a "brick and mortar" store, with more than 6 million independent Sales Representatives in more than 100 countries, Avon ships hundreds of thousands of products every day. Over the past decade, Avon has introduced efficient shipping practices to reduce the environmental impacts of distributing its products, often partnering with transportation and logistics partners to leverage the best options and expertise.
The production and consumption of fuels is a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. Where possible, Avon urges its supply chain partners to minimize consumption of fuel and to focus on sourcing fuel with the lowest environmental impacts and embedded carbon footprints. By doing so, Avon increases fuel efficiency, decreases transport miles and related emissions, and reduces costs.
The company continues to evolve its service model to meet customers' needs and explore new ways to further reduce the environmental impacts of product distribution.
Avon distribution centers in Zanesville, Ohio (U.S.), Brazil and Colombia are all LEED Gold certified, reinforcing Avon's commitment to sustainable distribution.
