Internal control and risk management

The internal control system contributes to L’Oréal’s development by ensuring compliance with laws, the application of the group’s standards and the reliability of financial and non-financial information, together with the efficiency and simplicity of internal processes. By enabling us to anticipate, prevent and manage our risks more effectively, the system provides support for decision-making and action. Since 2012, the network of managers has grown significantly to more than 110 today, covering almost all the countries in which the group operates.

A relationship of trust and dialogue with stakeholders

Throughout the year, the financial communications team organises events for exchanging with individual shareholders, investors and financial analysts to continue to strengthen this relationship of trust. In 2015, the Capital Market Days had a digital theme, with the group highlighting the competitive advantages of digital media in the beauty sector, and the opportunities they provide for better connecting with and serving consumers all over the world. This year the shareholders on the Consultation Committee helped to optimise the second digital edition of the Annual Report.
