L’Oréal North Asia achieves carbon neutrality across all sites 

THE WHAT? L’Oréal Group’s North Asia Zone is the first of the company’s zones worldwide to achieve carbon neutrality across all operated sites, plants, distribution centers, offices and research & innovation centers.

THE DETAILS This spans five geographic markets of Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

With the Japan market achieving carbon neutrality for its sites in July 2022, L’Oréal North Asia became the first zone of the L’Oréal Group to achieve carbon neutrality for all the sites L’Oréal operates.

The L’Oréal North Asia Zone is said to have achieved several firsts on the company’s CO2 emissions reduction roadmap. 

In both Mainland China and South Korea, CO2 emissions reduction was through installing onsite renewable energy generating facilities, which was said to be an important contribution to the overall effort.

THE WHY? Fabrice Megarbane, President of L’Oréal North Asia and CEO of L’Oréal China, “With the United Nations warning that every country, city, organisation should adopt plans for net zero – the call to act has seen L’Oréal North Asia Zone rise to the challenge and show true leadership. 

“As a company, we recognized the gravity of the global environmental crisis more than 20 years ago and began reducing our environmental footprint in our manufacturing plants and distribution centers back in 2009. With the launch of our ambitious sustainability commitment in 2020 – L’Oréal for the Future – which states that all L’Oréal sites worldwide must reach carbon neutrality by 2025, the North Asia Zone accelerated its efforts to achieve its goals, which we are immensely proud of.”
