SBWA - China: the Suzhou plant’s waste reduction campaign

L’Oréal’s Suzhou plant has been engaged in a campaign since 2016 to reduce waste and raise employee awareness of the need to preserve natural resources. In this way, the plant reduced its waste by 21% (per finished product) in 2018. With the combined effort of all its employees, the plant has put tangible initiatives in place: reducing losses in the manufacturing tanks and optimising the main transport packaging used during the delivery of packaging items. In 2018, it lowered production losses by 47%, and avoided wasting more than 300 tonnes of material. At the same time, it also reduced the waste linked to packaging by 1.5%.
