Roof-Top Solar System by L’Oréal

Posted on July 7, 2011 by

Beauty-care and cosmetic giant, L’Oréal will be adding a 1.4 MW solar system on the rooftop of its manufacturing plant in New Jersey, USA. This is the company’s first first renewable energy use in the US. The solar installation will provide about 25% of the plant’s electricity requirement.

Globally, L’Oréal gets around 20% of the company’s global electricity is supplied from renewable sources.

In 2009 L’Oréal announced long-term environmental targets for its factories and warehouses which will be measured on a like-for-like basis. The targets include: 50% reduction in GHG emissions; 50% reduction in water use per unit of finished product; 50% reduction in waste generated per unit of finished product.

Steve Kottakis, Vice President and L’Oréal Plant Manager said about the New Jersey facility “This new solar energy system will help us meet an important sustainability goal which is to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions by 50% by 2015.”
