Example1 Example1 “Discover a sustainable supply chain in Madagascar”



Sustainable sourcing is key when it comes to designing natural active ingredients. The pioneering experience started in the 1960's with the creation of a supply chain in Madagascar for Centella asiatica. The challenge was to implement best practices on fair and equitable benefit sharing. The supply chain is based on 3 pillars: sustainable wild harvesting; traceability and quality; local economic and social development. We proactively implemented best practices on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) since our inception, meeting the required commitments towards our suppliers, towards communities and towards the scientific community. As a trading member of the UEBT since 2008, Seppic - Lons site, is committed to promote the Sourcing with Respect® of ingredients that come from biodiversity. This commitment is at the heart of our conscious Research and Innovation and it meets today's customers expectations. In Madagascar, the Protocol of Nagoya has entered into force in January 2017: the challenge of today is to apply the Enforcement Decree for the concrete implementation of ABS.
