An inclusive Website Factory



L’Oréal’s first Solidarity Sourcing programme on the strategic topic of digital technology took shape in 2017. The project, called Website Factory, is notably unfolding in India, in partnership with the
Group’s supplier Photon. Brands such as L’Oréal Paris, Garnier, Kérastase and Essie are using it to implement and maintain their websites.

Located in the area of Chennai classed as a “priority development zone” by the Indian government, the programme has three areas of focus:

  • developing employment and regenerating the region;
  • practising a policy of including local, underprivileged communities, particularly through training programmes;
  • respecting and providing equal opportunities to women and minority groups.

It employs 69 people full time, a figure which is expected to double in 2018, considering the outlook for the initiative’s activity.


Promoting access to employment and social inclusion

By the end of 2015, the Group will guarantee its employees, in the 68 countries where it is present, access to the best practices in place for worker benefits through the L’Oréal Share & Care programme. This programme represents the universalisation of our social model, while also serving as a genuine catalyst for rapid progress. By 2020, 100% of L’Oréal’s employees will also have regular access to training, as part of our objective to ensure training for all.
