Centrex earns triple certification

02/2015

Between December 2012 and September 2013, L’Oréal Mexico’s distribution centre was awarded the most stringent environmental, quality and safety certifications available: OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

"We’re the only distribution centre to have been given this triple certification in Latin America," explains Supply Chain Director Gerardo Miranda.

A PIONEERING CENTRE IN GREEN ENERGY USE

Centrex, built in 2010 and processing 144 million units annually, was already the first distribution centre in Latin America to receive LEED Gold certification. Furthermore, by 2013, the centre’s performance was such that it achieved the environmental objectives set by the Group in 2005 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and waste generation. The transition to low-energy lighting helped save energy and the installation of solar panels, along with intensive work with suppliers, enabled the site to achieve 100% green-energy reliance in 2014. Safety was also improved, with a focus on process automation and staff structure and training. These results are great news not only for environmental and safety reasons, but also for cost control, and pride in their performance motivates the teams to keep reaching for new horizons.
