With the slogan "Beauty stays with you, packing with us", the EcoEstilo Project is the main project of Renner's PGRS. It is an initiative of the company to stimulate customers, consumers and employees to discard the fragrance and beauty residues, purchased or not at Renner, in appropriate collectors, available in all stores in the area of perfumery. The collected packagings are designed in an environmentally correct manner. In addition to the products discarded by the customers, the test samples from stores and defective beauty products are also collected.

In October 2014, Renner inaugurated the company's first sustainable store, at Riomar Shopping Fortaleza (CE). In 2015, it was awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in the Gold category, indicating that the enterprise in question is certified because it was built with socio-environmental measures capable of allying the well-being of customers and employees, actions for the community in which it is inserted and mainly the reduction or elimination of impacts with the environment.
The LEED certification, created by the US Green Building Council, provides parameters to stimulate the construction of sustainable buildings and certifies the projects in four different categories, according to the criteria met: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Among the sustainability practices adopted for the store that helped ensure the positive results for certification are the use of 70% of LED luminaires; the 20% reduction in energy consumption; 60% reduction in water use, as well as selective collection; use of recycled wood and use of equipment with high energy efficiency.
LEED certification has led Renner to incorporate best practices into all projects through a Technical Memorial: during the construction or remodeling of one of its stores, it has been observed principles of architecture, engineering and management to minimize the environmental impacts resulting from these works.
And following the management for sustainability in stores, Renner concluded the implementation of the project of sustainable management of furniture and mannequins, which aims to reduce waste and meet the needs of stores for these equipment more efficiently.
In this sense, two fronts of the project are the reuse of furniture and mannequins: the project promotes the sorting of furniture and mannequins in stores and other stores in the region, allowing the reuse of the equipment in better state and efficient management of the waste: created a new collection flow in which, after sorting, the materials to be discarded are taken directly from the store by companies specialized in giving the correct destination to the waste. In the previous model, the materials were destined first to the Distribution Center of the company, requiring greater displacement and space for accommodation. The new flow allows logistical and operational gains and, therefore, greater efficiency and economy.
