L’Oréal, A Pioneer in Ethics

L’Oréal believes that integrity and responsible corporate citizenship
are critical to the Group’s development, and as such, part of the
day-to-day activity at all levels of the company.

L’Oréal’s ethics programme is proactive and supports the Group’s
growth. In 2000, L’Oréal was one of the first companies in France to
establish a Code of Business Ethics. While ethics is considered the
responsibility of all employees, the Group appointed a Director of
Ethics in 2007 to reinforce the promotion and integration of ethical
practices among the businesses. In 2008, L’Oréal CEO Jean-Paul Agon
received the prestigious Stanley C. Pace Leadership in Ethics Award.
