Restoring peatlands and supporting local producers to preserve the environment


In 2017, L’Oréal launched a four-year peatland restoration project in Borneo, Indonesia, with one of its palm oil derivative suppliers. For many years, Indonesian peatlands have been illegally drained and burned, in order to be converted into agricultural land. This phenomenon has two major consequences - it unleashes large quantities of greenhouse gases and encourages the spreading of fires in the dry season. To eliminate this issue, the project plans to train local village communities on sustainable farming practices in dedicated fields. The initiative will also re-wet 2,000 hectares of land, in order to regenerate local biodiversity. In 2017, the project contributed to preventing the emission of more than 31,700 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
