News L’Oréal cofounds with Quantis the “SPICE initiative” to shape the future of sustainable packaging

Paris - May 16th 2018. L’Oréal has recently co-founded with Quantis, a leading environmental sustainability-consulting firm, the Sustainable Packaging Initiative for Cosmetics (SPICE) to shape the future of sustainable packaging and to reduce the environmental footprint of cosmetics products with cosmetics industry players committed to work together.

Many actors in the cosmetics industry are increasing their level of commitment to work towards a sustainable future for beauty but also face considerable methodological issues when it comes to measuring the environmental footprint of their products. SPICE was created to address these issues and provide solutions to these challenges in a collective manner.

The initiative now counts 11 current members, including cosmetics companies such as L’Oréal, Clarins Group, Coty Inc., LVMH or Shiseido, who will work together to develop and publish business-oriented methodologies and data to improve the environmental performance of the entire packaging value chain.

L’Oréal’s commitment to be a co-founder of SPICE was driven by the willingness to collectively share on sustainable development progress and to allow cosmetics industry players to work more effectively together

states Philippe Thuvien, L’Oréal’s Global Head of Packaging & Development.
