L'Oréal has received a 2017 Green Power Partner of the Year Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) due to its sustainability strategies and impact on the green power market. It is one of only two organisations to receive this recognition nationwide in the US.

The award was presented at EPA’s annual Green Power Leadership Awards Luncheon and handed over by Jay Harf, Vice President, Environment, Health, Safety, and Sustainability for L'Oréal Operations Americas. The ceremony itself was part of this year’s Renewable Energy Markets Conference in New York where America’s leading green power users are recognised for their contributions to the green power market.

L'Oréal USA is using 100% renewable electricity in its 21 American manufacturing and distribution facilities. The 86 million kWh usage is equivalent to the electricity use of over 8,000 homes a year; the business also ranks number 85 on the EPA’s National Top 100 list of businesses using the most renewable energy.

"We are proud to be named the Green Power Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency," said Frédéric Rozé, President and CEO of L'Oréal USA.

"This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our U.S. Operations teams whose tireless efforts have allowed us to exceed our global carbon reduction goals, and to whom we credit for reaching 100% renewable electricity across all of our US plants and distribution centres."
