“The global mobilisation of over 27,600 employees translates to nearly 170,000 volunteer hours. This collective effort to benefit more than 800 organisations is a source of pride for us all,” declared L’Oréal’s Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer Alexandra Palt. “At L’Oréal, Citizen Day is a pillar of our business culture.”
Highlights from Citizen Day 2018
