We create beauty that moves the world. We want tomorrow’s world to be fair, diverse, and inclusive. And we want women to be part of shaping it. We have a proud history of empowering women and working with them to build the world of tomorrow.
We express this commitment through a host of local and international initiatives and our L’Oréal for the Future sustainability program. We have teamed up with suppliers to develop solidarity programs, including our Solidarity Sourcing initiative. Two-thirds of the beneficiaries of Solidarity Sourcing projects are women.
Meanwhile, our brands are taking action and using their influence to raise awareness among partners, clients, and consumers to advance the cause of women.
Foster social inclusion of women through Solidarity Sourcing
By the end of 2020, the Solidarity Sourcing program had helped 81,138 people from vulnerable communities to get a job and receive a decent income. Of these, 47,420 beneficiaries were part of 68 projects specifically targeting women’s empowerment in 23 countries, with support from 15 partner associations and NGOs.
These Solidarity Sourcing projects support women who produce raw materials such as shea, argan, and galangal, which are grown and harvested in accordance with fair trade principles. The projects also support female entrepreneurs, single mothers, military wives, and women who have been the victims of violence.
By 2030, we will have helped another 100,000 people from disadvantaged communities gain access to employment, notably through our Solidarity Sourcing program.
