Our Sustainability Pledge at AMR Hair & Beauty Supplies
Welcome to our sustainability journey. As Australia's leading hair and beauty supply business, we understand our responsibility to our environment, our customers, and our global community. Our mission isn't just to provide top-tier beauty supplies - it's to do so while minimizing our footprint and helping shape a more sustainable industry.
Born in Sydney, Australia, we've expanded our reach over the years to include Melbourne, ACT, WA, and beyond. With every growth step, we prioritise creating a more sustainable business structure and engaging our teams globally in environmental initiatives. Our sustainability is a reflection of who we are as a company and what we believe in.
Sustainability is not just a project with an end date, it's an integral part of AMR. We began as a small store in Sydney and have grown to a global enterprise employing over 120 people. Our sustainability journey has been continuous since 2019 when we started introducing sustainable beauty products, goals & initiatives.
