Resources Stewardship Circle. This network of leaders in the beauty, flavor,

Since its founding, we have helped monitor the association’s collective
initiatives to ensure the sustainability of raw material supply chains.
In Haiti, for example, we support the NRSC’s initiatives on local vetiver
production, with particular focus on fighting soil erosion, minimizing adverse
social impact, ensuring advance payment to collectors, and improving
workers’ wages.
