Sharing our growth
At L’Oréal, we believe it is our responsibility to share our growth – and its benefits. Our Group is committed to making tangible improvements in communities wherever we are present.
This means going beyond mere “supplier” and “consumer” relationships. Our suppliers are partners with whom we join forces to meet our sustainability commitments. We are exploring new forms of cooperation all along the supply chain: ethical sourcing, training, sustainable partnerships… These actions give concrete form to our principles, allowing us to take an active role in shaping a better environment for everyone, especially where communities are most vulnerable. At L'Oréal, we are placing a particular emphasis on the improvement of women’s rights, health and standards of living.
To us, sharing growth means working to provide fair wages, encourage good practices and contribute to the preservation of the environment – in order to have a tangible, lasting, positive impact on people’s lives.
Our Brands have a great role to play to achieve this objective. Through their diversity, their history and their commitments, they support causes and communities close to them.
Focus On Acting for Empowering Communities
We have implemented multiple initiatives and programs to help communities thrive and flourish throughout the world.
In addition of the Group's actions, we encourage each of our brands to take initiatives on today's major social and environmental causes. Each brand identifies its own particular cause, conducts awareness campaigns and encourages its partners, clients and consumers to take part.

India: Inclusive Recycling
L’Oréal aims to have a positive impact all along the supply chain. For 10 years now, we have been working closely with our suppliers and subcontractors to improve opportunities and job accessibility for disadvantaged communities throughout the world. By dedicating a sizable portion of our company’s global purchases to this goal, we have helped tens of thousands of vulnerable people, usually excluded from the jobs market, to find – and keep – work and a living wage. We also encourage our partners to pursue a similar policy within their own ecosystems, creating a virtuous circle that has been growing for years.
