Sourcing as a catalyst for social inclusion
04/2016 • Updated 14/04/2017
In 2010, L’Oréal created Solidarity Sourcing, a global purchasing program designed to allow even the smallest companies to bid on Group contracts, and thus help people from underprivileged communities find lasting employment and an income.
The Solidarity Sourcing programme is deployed in all geographic zones and concerns all fields of purchases (raw materials, contract manufacturing, promotional items, etc.).
In 2016, the programme has enabled 63,228 people throughout the world to access work and income.
