Recovering residual waste
L’Oréal aims to go one step further by ensuring the best possible recovery of waste that cannot be avoided at source. In 2019, it recovered 97% of its industrial waste by reusing or recycling it, or harnessing it to produce energy. 58% of this waste was comprised of recovered materials (i.e. reused or recycled).
Promoting the circular economy
Throughout its value chain, L’Oréal endeavours to promote eco-design, resource efficiency and local waste management. The Group seeks to join circular economy networks wherever it operates, in order to create industrial synergies with other players in the area.
