L’Oréal to use only recycled plastic by 2030

On June 25, the beauty group L’Oréal revealed its environmental plan “L’Oréal for the future”. With a view to 2030, L’Oréal aims to make all its factories carbon neutral, but also to use 100% recycled or biosourced plastic packaging.

 

Packaging is at the heart of the French group’s concerns and objectives. L’Oréal is already working to eliminate the use of virgin plastic in the packaging of its products.

 

L’Oréal’s sustainable transformation is entering a new era,” said Jean-Paul Agon, L’Oréal’s CEO. Today’s planet is facing unprecedented challenges. It is crucial that we accelerate our efforts to enable humanity to live in a safe environment. We are doing this on our own scale. We know that the greatest challenges lie ahead and L’Oréal will remain true to its ambition: to act in full respect of “planetary limits. »

 

In order to achieve its objectives, the group is in line with the “Science Based Targets” initiative, which is based on three pillars: the preservation of biodiversity, the sustainable use of water and the circular management of resources.

 

L’Oréal is already carrying out various actions to ensure the group’s sustainability while promoting sustainable development. To date, 35 of the group’s sites are carbon neutral, including 14 factories. The group is committed to making all its sites carbon neutral by 2025.

 

It has also been working actively since 2005 to reduce the CO2 emissions of its factories and distribution centres. These emissions have already been reduced by 78% in absolute terms over the last 15 years, exceeding the target initially set at 60%.

 

Finally, L’Oréal is committed to halving greenhouse gas emissions for each finished product, compared to 2016.
