Groupe to achieve 100 percent carbon neutrality on all industrial sites by 2025
L’Oréal Middle East recently held its first inaugural L’Oréal For the Future Summit, alongside the recently concluded UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt to address global environmental challenges.
The Groupe launched ‘L’Oréal for the Future’ in 2020, the second phase of its sustainability program with a set of ambitions achievable by 2030, to be a catalyst for change in the beauty sector by leading the way in fighting climate change, measuring water sustainability, respecting biodiversity and preserving natural resources.
The Groupe has already reached several milestones in that mission, such as 100 of its industrial sites, including 25 factories, achieving carbon neutrality in 2021, and 67 percent of the PET plastic in its products being from recycled sources last year.
By 2030, the Groupe will also move to 100 percent recycled or biobased plastics in its product packaging and reach the target of 100 percent refillable, reusable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging.
“The L’Oréal mission to not only reduce our carbon footprint but set an example and create the path of sustainability for the sector,” affirmed Laurent Duffier, Managing Director-Middle East, L’Oréal.
“At L’Oréal Groupe, we are committed to creating beauty that is responsible to protect the planet and to improve the lives of people. We have taken bold commitments to transform ourselves to respect planetary boundaries,” asserted Rohini Behl, Head of Sustainability—South Asia, Pacific, Middle East, North Africa.
