Beauty and Personal Care Product Sustainability Rating System

This document presents the technical content for the Beauty and Personal Care (BPC) Product Sustainability Rating System. This assessment system was created by Forum for the Future and The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) as the result of a thorough collaboration among various stakeholders including leading brands such as CVS Health, Procter & Gamble, Target, Eastman Chemical Company, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. and Unilever.

The BPC Product Sustainability Rating System includes a set of key performance indicators (KPIs), along with a proposed method of scoring products against these indicators. A range of sustainability attributes and activities, from basic practice to aspirational leadership, are reflected within the KPIs. Retailers and other companies may voluntarily use this tool to independently and individually evaluate product sustainability, with scores intended to remain confidential between retailer and supplier. Resulting product assessment may be used to facilitate supplier-retailer conversations, drive improvements in supply chains, and independently evaluate and incentivize better, more sustainable products.
