The company has implemented measures to mitigate cost pressure from uncertainties due to the Ukraine war, COVID-19-driven lockdowns in China, and inflationary pressure on raw material and logistics costs.
Beiersdorf will release its quarterly statement for January to March, including a statement on the EBIT margin forecast for 2022, on 28 April 2022.
Recently, the skincare giant announced a strategic partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature Germany (WWF Germany) that will focus on climate protection, regenerative water environments and fully circular resources.
WWF Germany will advise Beiersdorf on the expansion of existing targets and the definition of additional ones, with the aim to strengthen the holistic approach to sustainability within the skincare company.
