Preserving Natural Resources

At L’Oréal, we manage our consumption of natural resources to ensure that our activities are compatible with a resource-constrained planet. We promote the use of renewable raw materials that are sustainably sourced or derived from green chemistry. We are also working on solutions that allow for more recycling and promote the development of the circular economy.

For more sustainable packaging

Preserving nature resources

Since 2007, L’Oréal has implemented a responsible packaging policy based on three pillars, known as the “three Rs”: Respect, Reduce and Replace. The Group uses a global, systematic eco-design process, ahead of product design, for the packaging of finished products and also for packaging used during transport. L’Oréal extended this process to include point-of- sale (POS) advertising materials in 2015. It systematically analyses the environmental profile of its packaging in order to identify opportunities for improvement.
