Founding research


It is vital that the links between gender and climate change are more fully understood. L’Oréal aims to support research exploring how climate change impacts women and fund projects that address gender-specific consequences of climate change.

It will focus on:

  • understanding the impacts of climate change on the availability of key cosmetic ingredients such as coconut oil, soybean oil, oilseed rape, olive oil, almond and shea butter,
  • empowering women in regions that are particularly affected by climate change and identifying how sustainable sourcing programs, such as the projects led by L’Oréal, are helping women to diversify their income and become leaders in the community.
