Plants not quite like any other

Throughout its purchases, L’Oréal committed to empowering women and disadvantaged people in China through work and decent salaries.



In 2016, in close collaboration with committed suppliers, we launched a new Solidarity Sourcing project. The Group entrusted the production of a substantial portion of its promotional items to plants located in China, in remote, underprivileged areas of the provinces of Anhui and Hunan, which are the most affected by economic migration. In 2016, our purchases enabled 160 people to work full-time, in their region of origin, with a decent salary. Two-thirds of employees are women; they are almost all mothers with families who thus have the possibility to provide for their needs while staying near their homes and children.


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.
