The company has joined forces with the sustainable plastic innovator Loop Industries on the initiative.

The brand offers yet in-store recycling facilities at 30% of its retail locations - a figure it hopes to increase to 100% by the year 2025.

01/25/2019 L'Oréal receives "Triple A" status for its environmental efforts

L’Oréal has proven that it is getting serious about corporate sustainability, with its latest accolade. The beauty giant has been awarded a place on the ‘A List’ from non-profit environmental body CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) for climate change, water security and forests.
The organization scores around 6,800 companies annually in terms of the steps they are taking regarding climate change, deforestation and water security, rating them from A through to D minus. L’Oréal’s scoring makes it one of only two companies to have received A’s in all three categories this year, and the only company to have done so three years in a row.
Last October, L’Oréal was one of more than 290 major brands that signed ‘The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment,’ led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with UN Environment, which aims to reduce plastic waste via measures such as eliminating single-use plastic from supply chains and ensuring that 100 percent of plastic packaging can be easily and safely reused, recycled, or composted by 2025.
