presented at Climate Week NYC
Clichy, 15thSeptember 2023 – L’Oréal announced a new EUR15 million endowment fund to support vulnerable communities to develop greater resilience in the face of climate disasters. The L’Oréal Climate Emergency Fund will support communities in the most exposed areas by enabling expert partner organizations to help them prepare for and recover from climate disasters.
It is estimated that climate-driven disasters have increased five-fold over the past 50 years1. Today, up to three billion people live in disaster-exposed areas, with the number predicted to increase by one billion by the year 20502. The L’Oréal Climate Emergency Fund will reach vulnerable communities through partnerships with both local disaster relief organizations and international NGOs. The new fund builds on L’Oréal Groupe’s longstanding commitment to address growing humanitarian and environmental challenges, bringing the Groupe’s total investments to more than EUR200 million across several funds, such as the L’Oréal Fund for Nature Regeneration, the Circular Innovation Fund and the L’Oréal Fund for Women.
“As an industry leader, L’Oréal has a responsibility to address the world’s most urgent environmental and social needs,” said Alexandra Palt, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer, L’Oréal GroupeandCEO of the FondationL’Oréal. “The urgent climate crisis we are facing necessitates action on all fronts and calls for global collaborationat every level.With the new Climate Emergency Fund, we are expanding on our commitments to help build resilience for vulnerable communities, togetherwith organizationsdeploying innovative solutions on the ground.”
The funds will be directed towards two types of actions: ‘Prepare,’ to help minimize the impact of climate disasters before they occur, through disaster planning and early warning systems; and ‘Repair,’ to restore essential infrastructures and vital services such as healthcare, housing and access to food and water when disaster strikes. The first two L’Oréal Climate Emergency Fund recipients are The Solutions Project, a US-based non-profit organization and Start Network, a global alliance of more than 80 local, national and international NGOs, that both work with people on the frontline to provide early and effective responses when and before humanitarian crises strike.
“Whilst the climate crisisis global in nature, it is clear thatsome communities are atfar greater risk of near-term climate disastersand mustmitigate for these climate-related events to prevent them from becoming human disasters,” saidChristina Bennett, CEO of Start Network. “In partnership withL’Oréal and local organizations rooted in their communities, wewillsupportpeople atrisk of crisisto prepare andprotect themselves, with the assistance delivered by local teams familiar with their circumstances and best placed to ensure affected populations rebound more quickly.”
