The hairdressing sector in Europe employs more than one million people across 400.000 hairdressing salons, receiving 350 million potential customers.
Environment means striving to minimize the environmental impact on the activities in the Salon, by choosing a systematic preventive approach rather than curative source environment afterwards.
Entrepreneurial skills are important in a rapidly changing world.
Water is a lot used in the hair & beauty. Water has both an environmental impact as a role on the field of Health & Safety.
Customers of the future will ask for more sustainability in the Hair & Beauty salon.
Quality of service in the salon should not be a fortuitous outcome, but something which is a logical consequence of the control of the process of hairdressing.
In the Hair & Beauty sector is still insufficient awareness for a safe and healthy work environment. Therefore, it is important to organize in the salon working adequately. The crew members are the driving force behind the company. Protect them and the customers.
We can prevent a large part of the waste in the salon. The use of sustainable products contributes to the greening of the salon.
The energy consumption in the Hair & Beauty sector can be reduced even further. Use of green power, energy-saving equipment be increased.
CSR stands for corporate social responsibility. It means that companies working on both financial, and environmental and social goals. That way they book economic and social benefit. The ISO 26000 guideline is the internationally recognized CSR guideline.

"Future Skills & Sustainable Development in the Green Salon"
The hairdressing sector in Europe employs more than one million people across 400.000 hairdressing salons, receiving 350 million potential customers. Hairdressing (and barbering) services, together with beauty treatment - The Hair and Beauty sector as it is called, form the personal services sector.
Our project aims to develop innovative ways of learning about sustainability and to promote sustainability in schools and companies in the sector.
We (teachers, students and other stakeholders involved) will combine the sustainable ideas through education and training with innovative ideas within the sector. We will generate educational products like workshops on sustainability and innovation, teaching materials for schools and extracurricular education about sustainability in the 'green' salon, a study of management systems of sustainability in the sector, develop a diagnostic scan and roadmap for businesses and schools and a physical sustainability game and an Internet awareness game about sustainability and entrepreneurial skills.
