Transforming L’Oréal’s business to respect the planet’s limits

- By 2030, 100% of the plastics used in L’Oréal’s products’ packaging will be either from recycled or bio-based sources
- By 2030, L’Oréal will reduce by 50% per finished product, compared to 2016, its entire greenhouse gas emissions
Contributing to solving the world’s challenges by supporting urgent social and environmental needs, through an unprecedented plan launched in May 2020
- L’Oréal is allocating €150 million to address urgent social and environmental issues.
“The biggest challenges remain to come”
In order to empower its consumers to make more sustainable choices, the company has developed a Product Environmental & Social Impact Labelling mechanism, scaling from A to E, endorsed by independent scientific experts and verified by an independent auditor, which will be progressively deployed for all brands and categories. “Our sustainable revolution is entering a new era. The challenges the planet is facing are unprecedented, and it is essential to accelerate our efforts to preserve a safe operating space for humanity. We do so in our own business operations and in our contribution to the society at large. We know that the biggest challenges remain to come and we will stay faithful to its ambition: operate within the limits of the planet”, said Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO of L’Oréal.
