L’Oréal’s biggest subsidiary achieves carbon neutrality

All 25 L’Oréal USA sites—including manufacturing and distribution centres, administrative sites and research facilities across 12 different states—achieved carbon neutrality for direct and indirect emissions (scopes 1 and 2). Examples of initiatives launched to get there include reducing and monitoring energy consumption, using renewable energy providers or developing on-site facilities, and using renewable natural gas provided by the methane produced from the natural decomposition of organic materials. What’s more, the Florence plant in Kentucky built itself the largest commercial solar farm in the state, providing another example of the Group’s commitment to sustainable development. The facility’s 4,140 panels deliver a combined output of 1.4 MW.
