For The Planet
Global warming is accompanied by environmental changes that threaten potentially permanent degradation of human and natural habitats. Sea levels, melting glaciers, ocean warming and acidification as well as extreme weather events are on the rise. With higher stakes must come stronger commitments. This is the reason why L’Oréal has decided to take its efforts even further through a program called “L’Oréal for the Future”. Our commitments towards 2030 mark the beginning of a more radical transformation and embody our view as to what a company’s vision, purpose and responsibilities should be to meet the challenges facing the world. It is no longer enough for companies to reduce their environmental impact with objectives that are “self-set”. At L’Oréal, our commitment is to ensure that our activities are respectful of the so-called “Planetary Boundaries”, meaning what the planet can withstand, as defined by environmental science. In order to reconcile our needs with the preservation of a resource-limited planet, we are raising the bar and implementing a new internal transformation program. Unlike the first program, our new commitments will not just focus on our direct impact. They will also tackle our indirect, extended impact, related, for example, to the activity of our suppliers and the use of our products by consumers.
