  • Aveda supported and played a role in CI's conservation enterprise development training workshop for representatives from nine Latin American countries in Bolivia in 2001.

  • With the support of CI, Aveda helped to capitalize an independently operated business, Profores, in Puerto Maldonado, Peru to produce and market sustainable rainforest products.
