L’Oréal Travel Retail launches sustainable trucking in Singapore
L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific has collaborated with Bolloré Logistics Singapore to launch a biofuel trucking solution in Singapore.
The new truck from Bolloré Logistics Singapore delivers the company’s beauty products across the country.
“With over a decade of collaboration, this marks a new milestone for both companies’ sustainability efforts driven by their respective sustainability programs: L’Oréal for the Future and Powering Sustainable Logistics,” said L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific.
The co-designed biofuel solution uses B20 biodiesel, created by mixing biodiesel produced from used cooking oil with regular diesel. Each year, a potential 20,000 tons of waste cooking oil is generated and disposed of in Singapore. By repurposing this waste cooking oil into biofuel, this solution is more resource-efficient and contributes to a circular economy.
Vincent Neyton, Operations Director at L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific, said: “As a unique beauty leader, we are aware that the way we operate can encourage others to do likewise. Our collaboration with Bolloré Logistics Singapore to launch a more sustainable trucking solution demonstrates both companies’ commitment to a process of continuous and incremental improvement. Led by our sustainability program, L’Oréal for the Future, we want to be a catalyst of change in the travel retail beauty sector and beyond, and to inspire the industry to take action with us.”
Frederic Marcerou, Managing Director of Bollore Logistics Singapore, added: “Green logistics is the future. The switch to biofuel helps to close the circle on our sustainability efforts for land trucking. By working with both our suppliers and our customers, we take another step closer to building a sustainable supply chain.”
The L’Oréal for the Future program lays down the group’s set of sustainability ambitions for 2030. To ensure its business is respectful of the planet, and fair for the communities it works with, L’Oréal aims not only to continue to reduce its direct environmental impact, but also to reduce the impact of its entire business, including those of its suppliers and consumers.
