Inspiring consumers to take action with us
An important part of achieving sustainability is accurately assessing the impact of products and acting to reduce that impact. We think our responsibility is to share this information with consumers so they can make informed, sustainable choices. People are willing to do their part for the environment, but to achieve this, transparency is key. That is why we developed a Product Impact Labelling system to inform consumers on the environmental and social impact of our products.
In order to provide consumers with clear and useful information, this Environmental and Social Impact Labelling includes a score on a scale from A to E, with an “A” product considered as “best in class” in terms of its environmental impacts in its category. The score will give an accurate vision of the impact of a L’Oréal product by taking into account 14 planetary impact factors such as greenhouse gas emissions, water scarcity, ocean acidification or impact on biodiversity, measured at every stage of a product’s life cycle.
The labelling is now accessible on product web pages for Garnier Haircare products, in France. We will progressively roll-out the labelling system. We pledge that by 2022, it will apply to all the Group’s rinse-off products.
Focus On Our Product Environmental and Social Labelling System
How did we design the methodology?
How to decode the labelling?
How do I know the data is reliable?
Where can I find the environmental and social labelling?
Our environmental and social labelling builds on the extensive work that has been carried out in recent years to improve the profile of our products. Recognized by scientific independent experts, it is also consistent with the recommendations of European authorities.Clémence GossetHead of Consumer information, L’Oréal Corporate Responsibility
