German Sustainability Award 2023 and 
Global Transition Award 2022 for La Biosthétique

There are heartfelt themes that are ideally reflected in a brand's DNA. At La Biosthétique, sustainability is a theme that has been our fundamental since Marcel Contier founded the company in the 1950s. For us, sustainability means passion, conviction, lived culture - in many ways. From production to shipping, all our processes and developments are strictly guided by their environmentally friendly orientation.

Our goal is to keep the ecological footprint on this planet as small as possible while offering exclusive hair and skin cosmetics that set their own qualitative standards.

As early as 2020, our corporate site in the Black Forest was certified as climate-neutral by ClimatePartner, and today 600 La Biosthétique hair salon partners in Germany, Austria and Switzerland operate as "climate-neutral salons". 

At La Biosthétique, the idea of sustainability is not so much a trend as a lived tradition.

These efforts in terms of sustainability, climate and environmental protection have now been rewarded with two major awards, received by Isabelle Weiser and Dr. Christian Ader.

"We are very pleased about these two important successes and feel confirmed in our actions. At the same time, we would like to thank our salon partners, whose commitment has enabled us to offset more than 19 million kilograms of CO2. Climate protection is only possible together and we hope to generate even more climate-neutral salons through the two awards in order to achieve our goal by 2030 and to be able to reduce our emissions by a further 20%."

The German Sustainability Award 2023 - Europe's largest award for ecological and social commitment - has been presented since 2008 by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. (German Sustainability Award Foundation) in cooperation with the German government and other sponsors from leading associations and business organizations. 

A prerequisite for nomination is to demonstrate impressively that as a company it acts in a socially as well as ecologically responsible manner.

No less significant is the Global Transition Award 2022, presented by the German daily newspaper Handelsblatt. With our objective to minimize the indirect emissions of our supply chain as well as the inclusion of our partner salons as certified climate-neutral hair salons, we convinced the jury. La Biosthétique is demonstrably* on track to meet the 1.5 degree target of the Paris Climate Agreement.
