L’Oréal was also one of only two companies in the world to score an A for all three of CDP’s programs (climate, water and forests) in recognition of the Group’s impressive actions to cut carbon emissions, enhance water stewardship, tackle deforestation in its supply chain and lead the new sustainable economy.
