1-Do you believe that
The Body Shop was guilty of greenwashing, under the leadership of Anita Roddick?
considered a pioneer in modern corporate social responsibility (CSR). Can it
sales to L’Oréal be considered a sellout of its values and principles? Is it an
attempt to spread human values wider in business? Has it just found a strategic
partner to help its product reach a large market?
the critics that L’Oréal was trying to buy CSR through its acquisition of
the body shop?
that the sale of The Body Shop to Natura would create more opportunities for
the firm? Is it likely that the values of naturality and ethics still be
considered to take precedence with the firm’s new owners?
