To make the biggest dent in carbon emissions, L’Oreal found that reducing reliance on air freight provides an outsized impact, said François-Régis Le Tourneau, L’Oreal’s corporate supply chain standards and prospective director, at the APICS 2018 conference in Chicago.

After analyzing its most used transportation modes, L’Oreal pledged to reduce emissions from its supply chain transportation 25% by 2030. Le Tourneau said the company has already converted to exclusively using trucks running on alternative fuels in Paris.

The company will achieve its goal by adding sustainable transport to supplier selection criteria, reducing the use of air freight, transferring as much volume as possible to rail and sea freight and using alternative vehicles in cities.
