Every year since 2010, L’Oréal has been giving employees worldwide the opportunity to devote an entire day during their work time to supporting non-profit social and environmental organizations. Employees can get involved in various initiatives, such as renovating non-profits’ premises, supporting young social entrepreneurs or collecting waste.
