The program, according to Alexandra Palt, chief corporate responsibility officer and executive vice president of the Fondation L’Oréal, defines targets according to science.
Highlights of L'Oréal for the Future include, by 2025 each of the group’s sites will have attained carbon neutrality by using 100% renewable energy. By 2030, all the plastics used in L’Oréal’s product packaging are to be from recycled or bio-based sources, and the group aims to half its greenhouse gas emissions per finished product versus 2016. The company notes that meeting these objectives should also improve the environmental profiles of suppliers and consumers.
It's all about the future, but the future gets underway today at L'Oréal when Garnier unveils environmental and social-impact product labeling, as well, with scores ranging from A to E that are explained on the brand's website. The system was recognized by independent scientific experts and verified by an independent auditor.
“It will allow consumers to get informed about the environmental and social impacts of their products,” Palt said. “It will be digital and accessible.”
