Yichang: a plant with carbon neutrality



For the past few years, the Yichang plant in China, which specialises in make-up production, has been pursuing innovation to improve its energy performance and cut its CO2 emissions. This ambitious strategy has reduced the site’s energy consumption by 33% in 10 years, empowering it to achieve LEED Gold certification. Through the use of hydropower, the leading source of renewable energy in the region, the Yichang plant has been 100% electric since September 2015, reaching carbon neutrality.

Reducing CO2 emissions

L’Oréal set the objective of reducing CO2 emissions at our plants and distribution centres by 50% in absolute terms, between 2005 and 2015. This goal was reached this year already, even though production volumes actually increased by 21%. The Group is now targeting a 60% reduction by 2020.
