Project Manager Sustainable Sourcing



Context:


Most of L’Oréal’s raw materials are derived from renewable sources and are largely of plant origin. The Group, which uses approximately 1,600 raw materials from nearly 350 species of plants, sees biodiversity as an important and growing source of innovation and is committed to sourcing its ingredients in a sustainable and responsible manner.

The goal of the Raw Materials Sustainable Sourcing department is to ensure 100% of plant-based ingredients used in formulas are traceable, sustainably sourced and that none of them are linked to deforestation. To limit our impact on natural habitats, we are committing to holding flat, by 2030, the total land occupancy vital to the sourcing of our ingredients, compared to 2019. Thus, whilst ensuring the high quality of the materials, our mission is to ensure the respect of human rights along our supply chains, contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and the fight against climate change. Moreover, the in-depth work undertaken with our suppliers on social and environmental factors is an undeniable asset in our business continuity.
