Modern Slavery Statement

The ‘Modern Slavery Act’ was introduced in 2015.  It was designed to target slavery and human trafficking in the UK, and introduces tough penalties and sentences for offences relating to slavery and human trafficking.  Large UK businesses are now required to publish an annual statement to ensure transparency across their entire supply chain.

The L’Oréal Group is recognised for its responsible business practices including with regards human rights. In 2016, it was recognized for the 7th time as one of the “World’s most Ethical Companies” by the Ethisphere Institute and, in 2015, joined the UN Global Compact LEAD Group that brings together the most committed companies to sustainability.

In line with the Modern Slavery Act, L’Oréal UK has just published its own Statement.  In it we describe the steps that L’Oréal UK has taken during the year ending December 2016 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking from taking place in our business and supply chains. This statement has been approved by L’Oréal UK and Ireland’s Managing Board.
