L'Oreal is making a big investment in the fight against climate change.

The French cosmetics company has committed $50 million to the Circular Innovation Fund, which aims to invest in businesses developing solutions to "build a circular economy," Global News reports.

"We believe impact investment is one of the ways we can contribute to spur innovation in the circular economy space," says Christophe Babule, executive vice president and CFO of L'Oreal.

The fund will invest in businesses developing new solutions to build a circular economy, including new materials, circular packaging, recycling, logistics, and design.

L'Oreal, which reported record profits of $6.16 billion last year, says it wants to reduce its own negative impact on the environment by reducing its own negative impact as a business.

The Circular Innovation Fund is the second impact fund launched by L'Oreal.

In 2020, the company launched the 50 million L'Oreal Fund for Nature Regeneration, which aims to fund the restoration of marine areas and degraded lands. Read the Entire Article
