L’Oréal has published its Sharing Beauty with All 2018 sustainability program report, which shows a 77 percent drop in carbon emissions for its plants and distribution centres from 2005.
The program, which aims to fight climate change, also highlighted that by the end of 2018 some 38 of the company’s production sites achieved carbon neutrality.
Adding another coup, last year L’Oréal was recognized as one of two companies in 3000 to be awarded three ‘A’ ratings by the CDP in climate protection, sustainable water management, and fighting against deforestation, with the French beauty giant the only company to have achieved this three years in a row.
Alexandra Palt, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer L’Oréal, said, “Climate change is a major concern for the world, and its consequences call for urgent action. The L’Oréal Group aims to play a leading role in driving efforts to meet this challenge,” says Alexandra Palt, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer L’Oréal. “Companies need to get involved, and we should be judged on the merits of our actions and results.”
Last year the company also guaranteed that 100 percent of all new or renovated products underwent an assessment with its Sustainable Product Optimisation Tool (SPOT), with 79 percent being improved by the function.
