Since 2009, L’Oréal has engaged its employees through a day of volunteering activities called Citizen Day. With some 27,600 participants and 170,000 volunteering hours across 63 countries, this event supported 855 organisations in 2018.
On the environmental side, L’Oréal is pursuing the implementation of its Working Sustainably programme, which aims to reduce the environmental footprint of its administrative sites and research centres, and to engage employees in adopting sustainable behaviours.
46 countries participated in the Group’s second Sustainably Week, which took place in September 2018 and focused on sustainable travel. During the week, 40 million tonnes of CO2 emissions were avoided, which is the equivalent of 800 return flights from Paris to London.
