With Earth day just around the corner, environmental issues are on everyone’s mind, including L’Oréal’s. However, the cosmetic powerhouse is looking beyond this upcoming weekend and has committed to improving the environmental or social profile of 100% of its new or renovated products by 2020.
L’Oréal has published a report that demonstrates the progress made on its goal to reduce its environmental footprint and reaffirms its commitment to fight climate change.
Alexandra Palt, L’Oréal’s chief sustainability officer stated, “Climate change is a reality and it impacts the most vulnerable within our value chain, for example farmers and producers of certain natural ingredients, such as shea butter from Burkina Faso or argan oil from southern Morocco.”
Palt continued, “Action is urgently needed. At the halfway mark of our 2020 ambitions, we are going to redouble our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and reach our targets, particularly in terms of sustainable production and innovation.”
