In 2012, within the scope of the consultations organised during the development of the Sharing Beauty with All programme, L’Oréal developed a materiality analysis. This process enabled the Group to fine-tune its understanding of the sustainable development issues that were important in the eyes of its internal and external stakeholders, in order to compare them with its own strategy.
In 2016, L’Oréal updated its materiality matrix, using a methodology aligned with the criteria for the ISO 26000* standard. Among the 25 topics identified, this new grid highlights 10 issues that are strategic for both the Group and its stakeholders.
* ISO 26000 is an international standard that provides companies with environmental and social responsibility guidance.
