L'Oreal for the Future

L'Oréal for the Future, our sustainability commitments for 2030.

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.

Novéal is taking action to enable the group to reach its environmental objectives at several levels : 
1. Improving the performance of our production units
2. Innovation and process design of our ingredients
