L’Oréal is a founding partner of the Women4Climate programme, which was launched in 2017 by C40 Cities, a global network uniting 90 of the world’s large cities that have committed to preserve the climate.
This initiative aims to support and train young women from civil society to strengthen their leadership capabilities and enable them to achieve their local climate adaption projects.
“At L’Oréal, we consider it a strategic imperative to commit ourselves, alongside the C40 women mayors, to supporting the future generation of women leaders in addressing climate change. This commitment reflects two of the Group’s major values: promoting gender equality and preserving the climate,” explains Alexandra Palt, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer of the L’Oréal Group and Executive Vice President of the L’Oréal Foundation. “Women play a fundamental role in the fight against climate change. It is our responsibility to help and support them.”
In every city signing up to the programme, L’Oréal will engage mentors from its teams to support the young women who are selected. This is already the case in Paris and in Mexico City: in each of these cities, a first cohort of 11 young women has been chosen to benefit from this mentoring programme.
