Stepping up the deployment of renewable energy


L’Oréal aims at exceeding its objectives of reduction of CO2 emissions thanks to renewable and solar energy

By 2020 in the United States, we will be able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 80%, from a 2005 baseline, thanks to several projects launched in 2016, combined with the purchase of local renewable energy certificates:
• launch of two large-scale projects: 4,000 solar panels (1.2 MW) planned at the plant in North Little Rock (Arkansas) and 5,000 (1.5 MW) at the plant in Florence (Kentucky);
• extension of the solar installation in Piscataway (New Jersey) to satisfy 26% of the plant’s power needs;
• installation of 12 wind turbines on the roof of the distribution centre in Dallas (Texas).
