The US Environmental Protection Agency has recognized L’Oréal USA as one of the nation’s leading green power users, bringing the French beauty giant into the ranks of the EPA’s Green Power Partnership.
L’Oréal USA uses nearly 27 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, representing 33 percent of its total energy use, and making the French beauty giant the second largest on-site green power user among consumer products companies within the partnership.
“We are proud to be recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency for our renewable energy achievements,” said Fréderic Rozé, President and CEO of L’Oréal USA. “As the world’s beauty leader, it is our responsibility to integrate sustainability into all areas of our business and this partnership signifies the company’s ongoing effort to identify cleaner sources of power.”
James Critchfield, Manager of the Green Power Partnership added, “EPA is excited to welcome L’Oréal USA as a Green Power Partner and applauds their use of on-site green power and taking a leadership position on the environment. L’Oréal USA is helping to support the voluntary renewable energy market, reduce harmful air pollution, and demonstrates that using green power is smart for business and the environment.”
