Digital solidarity sourcing
In 2017, L’Oréal’s first solidarity sourcing project – in the strategic area of digital technology – got underway. Established in partnership with local service provider Photon, the Website Factory project is already active in India. Brands such as L’Oréal Paris, Garnier, Kérastase and Essie rely on this service to roll out their Internet sites and ensure their maintenance.
Located in a “priority development zone” of the Chennai Metropolitan Area, this initiative revolves around three commitments: job development and economic revitalisation of the region; inclusion of vulnerable local communities, particularly through training; and equal treatment for women and minorities.
It has 69 full-time employees, a number which is set to double in 2018 thanks to expected growth in business.
