The Union for Ethical BioTrade has announced that ‘the human dimension of biodiversity’ will be the theme of its 6th annual conference.

The Paris-based conference, which takes place in April, will emphasise the social aspects of ethical sourcing of biodiversity. The nonprofit association stated that focus within ethical trading is shifting from ingredients to suppliers.

Within the beauty industry, nature is often central in the story of particular products or brands, but the human aspect is gaining increasing importance​,” it said in a statement.

The conference, which is supported by L’Oreal, Natura Brazil, Native and Weleda, will feature new UEBT/IPSOS research on consumer awareness of biodiversity, and will consider access and benefits sharing.

“The beauty industry recognizes more and more value to inclusive approaches such as social responsibility, fair trade, and solidarity sourcing”​, says Rik Kutsch Lojenga, UEBT’s Executive Director.
