About the Event
Forum Europe was delighted to work with Cruelty Free International, an NGO with the aim of ending cosmetic testing on animals, on a multi-stakeholder breakfast side event in the context of the United Nations High-Level Political Forum. The event took place on the morning of Monday 15th July in New York.
Hosted by Cruelty Free International, and in partnership with Estée Lauder Companies, the Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations and the Permanent Mission of Guatemala to the United Nations - this invitation-only event welcomed some 40 senior representatives from the UN, governments, leading beauty companies and civil society. Guests celebrated the power of partnerships for sustainability and explored the growing momentum across the stakeholder spectrum for a sustainable beauty industry.
The event served a delicious vegan breakfast and was set against stunning views of the New York skyline. Directly opposite UNHQ, the event offered a valuable contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals, and to the mission of ending cosmetic animal testing.
