Nature-based solutions in our supply chains
Using the latest evidence and research, we’re working with Oxford University social venture Nature Based Insetting (NbI). Together, we are measuring the impact of our priority natural raw materials, such as latex. The resulting framework will assess Reckitt’s nature impacts, risks, and dependencies, while also identifying opportunities to protect and restore biodiversity at a local level. This framework will guide our actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, address biodiversity priorities and enhance people’s livelihoods.
