In 2022, the L’Oréal Group was awarded a triple "A" rating, the highest grade, on all three of the organization's rating criteria (climate, forests and water), alongside 12 other companies out of more than 18,700 applicant organizations. With this nomination, the L’Oréal Group is proud to be the only company in the world to have received this recognition for the seventh consecutive year. This is a true recognition that is the fruit of our labor and commitment of our teams around the world, at our sites and within our departments (R&I, packaging, purchasing, EHS, divisions and brands), to achieve these results but also to collect and organize them.
L’Oréal recognized the urgency of addressing the challenges of the global environmental crisis early on, with its first sustainability program launched in 2013. In 2020, the group entered the second phase of its sustainability program with "L’Oréal for the Future".
By the end of 2021, the Group was proud to have reached new levels in achieving its climate, water and forests targets:
- 87% reduction in the carbon footprint of all industrial sites since 2005 (in tons of CO2 equivalent)
- 94% of the natural ingredients in our formulas are traceable and come from sustainable sources.
- - 53% reduction in water consumption in factories and distribution centers since 2005 (in liters per finished product)
More than an award, we see this as a recognition of our commitment and actions to help transform our model towards a more sustainable world. At L’Oréal, we know what’s at stake and we will do everything we can to contribute to climate action, addressing the challenges facing the world and accelerating our efforts on a global scale.
Through this fundamental transformation, we hope to be a catalyst for change in our own industry and beyond, and to inspire our consumers to act with us.
