Each year L’Oréal employees across the world give back to their local communities during Citizen Day, a day-long volunteering event reflecting our commitment to supporting important societal and environmental issues.

Every year since 2010, L’Oréal employees have devoted an entire working day to offering their skills and energy to several hundred non-profits.

Examples of the work we’ve done include cleaning up natural sites, running wellbeing workshops for people in vulnerable situations, painting community centres that welcome elderly or disadvantaged people, and helping job seekers prepare for the workforce.

More employees have joined the initiative every year and in 2016, L’Oréal Citizen Day supported 515 non-profits in 70 countries, with some 28,000 participants volunteering.
