One of the top cosmetic and fragrance companies in the world has a commitment to go very green, and L’Oreal’s North Little Rock plant has become a company leader in those sustainable goals.
The recent addition of a renewable energy system at the plant is not only turning heads, but saving dollars as well.
A recently installed and activated solar canopy stretches 84 feet across and has 60 panels. It’s capable of generating 20,000 kilowatt hours annually, enough to power three homes for a year.
L’Oreal’s 900,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility is a leader among its international counterparts and it is helping the company meet its environmental goal of reducing its carbon footprint by 50% by the year 2015.
