Under the vision to make a more beautiful world,
Amorepacific runs a variety of CSR programs based on the three initiatives of women, natural ecosystem, and nurturing culture.
Launched in 2000 as Amorepacific’s naturalism brand, innisfree has focused on delivering healthy beauty based on ingredients from the pristine nature of Jeju Island. We have continued to conceive ways to fulfill the five commitments we made with our customers—natural ingredients, ethical consumption, eco-friendly campaigns, green designs, hands-on experience of unblemished nature— while conducting activities to deliver greater value to our customers and society as a whole, thereby establishing itself as a sustainable cosmetics brand.
Starting with the belief that living a green life is neither difficult nor boring, but rather can be a part of daily fun, innisfree’s PlayGreen idea is embodied by the PlayGreen campaign, along with ‘Use a Hankie, Save the Earth!’ and used cosmetic bottles recycling activities.
The PLAYGREEN is a festival for people who practice the green life to gather and have fun by sharing various ideas to realize the green life in daily life. Through this campaign, innisfree provides customers with various experiences of saving the earth.
In 2019, Amorepacific conducted an event called 'I LIKE ZERO' that encouraged 2,500 participants to spend a day without waste as part of the efforts to support the global zero waste movement. The proceeds made through the ticket sales and fundraising were donated to innisfree foundation for creating forests in Jeju island.
This is one of innisfree’s landmark green campaigns, which takes place each year in June, the month of the environment. The campaign promotes a daily habit of using handkerchiefs in order to reduce the use of disposable paper tissue thereby, protecting trees, forests and moreover, the entire planet.
Established in 2003, the campaign has been encouraging customers’ participation in innisfree’s green efforts. innisfree has introduced Green Products, which are packaged in up-cycled empty bottles, and opened the concept store named ‘Empty Bottles Space’ decorated with upcycled cosmetic bottles.
This is innisfree’s brand social responsibility project that practices the joyful sharing for the benefit of nature and our neighbors. innisfree endeavors to ensure that our customers makes a social contribution through practicing green life.
innisfree hopes to return to the nature the benefits we gained from it. By cultivating the innisfree Forest with our customers, we are working to preserve the value of nature. Currently we are making more innisfree Forests across the world through activities such as preservation of the Gotjawal Forest in Jeju; prevention of desertification in Inner Mongolia; and cultivation of mangrove forests in ASEAN countries.
innisfree seeks to obtain a deep understanding of Jeju as our brand heritage and return the favor bestowed by the clean island. To conserve Jeju’s natural environment, it dispatches the Jeju Daumi volunteering team to Jeju every year to maintain the Oreum trails.
