How to reduce co2 emissions?
All of our plants have continually worked on lowering carbon emissions by increasing energy efficiency through better building design and insulation, as well as using energy efficient technologies for industrial processes and finally sourcing more renewable energy locally.
These types of efforts led to us lowering our carbon footprint by 72% from 2005-2019. However, our goal is for all of our industrial sites to become carbon neutral by 2025. We will do that by harnessing technologies best suited to each site: biomethanisation, solar panels, biomass, wind energy, etc.
How to reduce energy consumption?
Within our production facilities and distribution centers, we will continue to optimize our use of energy, with a goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2025.
What is a sustainable factory?
A sustainable factory is one that uses renewable energy and is carbon neutral.
How to reduce the water consumption?
Garnier is re-thinking water use across its sites in order to significantly reduce its industrial water consumption. We already have three “waterloop” factories, where 100% of industrial water use (for cleaning and cooling, for example) is re-treated, recycled or reused water. We no longer need fresh water for these processes.
By treating and reusing high quality water in an internal loop, we are able to reduce our water consumption and the factory’s environmental impact. Our three “waterloop” factories saved more than 8 million liters of water in 2019 compared to 2018, and inspired many other factories worldwide.
How Garnier reduces their carbon impact?
As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce our products’ environmental impact, we will support all our Garnier industrial sites in going carbon neutral and by adopting 100% renewable energy in the next five years.
