Since 1946, we’ve been a leader in product development that is rooted in the best beauty performance and conscientious chemistry. Our mission will always be to bring the best to everyone we touch and to help support the environment in which we live. As the namesake brand of The Estée Lauder Companies, here is what we are doing today and tomorrow for a more sustainable future.

Carbon Neutral

Estée Lauder offsets the carbon emissions from shipping
for every U.S. Home Delivery order placed on*

*Estée Lauder is providing funding to the Doe Mountain Improved Forest Management Project
to offset CO2e emissions from deliveries made from our Estée Lauder US fulfillment
center to our consumers' home delivery addresses (excludes buy online and pickup in store
and same-day delivery). The Doe Mountain Improved Forest Management Project protects a
stretch of mixed-hardwood forest across 8,600 acres in Northeastern Tennessee. Management
of the area includes natural forest growth and non-commercial maintenance harvests to
promote forest health and support carbon sequestration. The Doe Mountain project (ACR398)
adheres to ACR's Improved Forest Management Methodology for Quantifying GHG Removals
and Emissions Reductions through Increased Forest Carbon Sequestration on Non-Federal
Forestlands, version 1.3, is sold by 3Degrees Group, Inc. These credits are independently
verified by SCS Global Services.

Renewable Energy is powered by renewable electricity.*

*The electricity used to power our e-commerce data center in North America is covered by renewable energy certificates.

Responsible Sourcing

We source global ingredients and materials to create our products, and we collaborate with a wide, diverse supplier network. We work diligently to source ingredients responsibly and with attention to potential impacts on people and the environment. We aim to continuously improve and strengthen our sourcing practices while remaining sensitive to the local communities in which we operate.

Packaging Sustainability

By 2025, 75-100% of our packaging will meet at least one of the “5 Rs”: recyclable, refillable, reusable, recycled or recoverable. We will increase the amount of post-consumer recycled material in our packaging by up to 50%. We’re also eliminating extraneous cartons and paper for our products wherever possible. We aim to have 100% of our forest-based fiber cartons FSC-certified by 2025.

Ingredient Transparency

We list all of our products’ ingredients on their respective product pages on, and, where applicable, any ingredients our products are “free from.” Our Ingredient Glossary features key high-performance ingredients and their skin benefits to further educate you about our products.
