L’Oréal India Baddi factory achieves carbon neutrality
Beauty company L’Oréal India has claimed that its manufacturing facility in Baddi in Himachal Pradesh has achieved 100-percent carbon neutrality.
The achievement is in-line with the beauty leader's global sustainability commitment, 'L'Oréal for the Future', which states that all L'Oréal operated sites worldwide must reach carbon neutrality by 2025.
The company has replaced conventional boilers with electric boilers to reduce diesel consumption to zero and has changed the source of electricity to a hydropower plant to reach 100-percent neutrality.
By improving energy efficiency and using 100 percent renewable energy, L’Oréal India aims to reduce its CO2 emissions and operate within planetary boundaries.
Commenting on the initiative, Amit Jain, managing director, L’Oréal India in a statement said, “The plant’s 100-percent carbon neutrality milestone is aligned to the group’s global sustainability targets. We are happy to report that the emissions associated with electricity and fuel consumption have been reduced to zero, thereby having no carbon impact on the environment.”
L’Oréal India operates two manufacturing facilities in India, one in Chakan in Pune and the other in Baddi in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh.
