In an exclusive editorial with GFL cosmetics we explore their sustainable initiatives and the opportunity to appeal to a wider range of guests by providing environmentally friendly amenities.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals? The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

Whilst we all strive for a better future, what plans do you have in 2024 with regards to sustainability?

GFL’s goal is to convert the existing model to one that delivers against our commitment to a circular economy, reducing CO2 emissions and water usage. We are taking action by focusing on solving problems related to plastic production, recycling and waste. We are moving from virgin to post-consumer recycled plastic, which will reduce our CO2 impact and CO2 emissions. We favour the use of cosmetics with less impact on the aquatic ecosystem. Eu Ecolabel, Cosmos, Nordic Ecolabel are only some examples of our contribution to reduce the CVD-TOX.

GFL has always been committed to the creation and development of personal care products through innovation while utilising the latest technologies. We create formulas made of the finest natural and organic certified ingredients, meeting the requirements for a range of consumers.

Our headquarters are in Lugano, Switzerland and our manufacturing facilities are in the Milan area of Italy. The raw ingredients used in creating our cosmetics are sourced locally and our facilities are powered using 100% renewable energy. 

Providing a sustainable, high-quality service to our hotel customers is paramount and to achieve this, in the UK, we partner with local and national distributors. These partnerships ensure our products are available when you need them whilst the carbon footprint is kept to a minimum.

If your plans for 2024 include the introduction of sustainable guest amenities, we would sincerely like to hear from you.
