Key Issues and Challenges Conclusion The Body Shop has many Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives in place.
It is evident that they strive towards maintaining the ethical and environmentally aware image that they have created for themselves by working, sponsoring and partnering with global foundations and organisations that run for worthy causes.

legal action sought against the company “Some of Body Shop's critics and customers said that they felt betrayed by the deal as Roddick had previously been vocal in her criticism of companies like L'Oréal. They called for a boycott of Body Shop's products. However, Body Shop and Roddick defended the deal by saying that the acquisition by L'Oréal would not compromise Body Shop's ethics; the merger would, in fact, give Body Shop a chance to spread its values to L'Oréal. L'Oréal also announced that Body Shop's values would not be compromised and that it would continue to operate as an independent unit.”
