More renewable energies

Since 2005, our plants and distribution centres have cut water by 53% and CO2 emissions by 69%.
By 2025, 100% of our industrial sites will be carbon neutral, and will only use renewable energy.

How are Garnier reducing CO₂ emissions?

All of Garnier’s plants are continually working on lowering carbon emissions by increasing energy efficiency. They do this through improving building design and insulation, as well as using energy efficient technologies for industrial processes and sourcing more renewable energy locally.

These efforts have enabled us to lower our carbon footprint by 72% within the period of 2005 to 2019 and our goal is for all industrial sites to become carbon neutral by 2025. It’s ambitious but we believe we can get there by harnessing technologies best suited to each site. These technologies include biomethanisation, solar panels, biomass, wind energy and more.

How do Garnier reduce energy consumption?

Within our production facilities and distribution centres, Garnier will continue to optimize our use of energy, with a goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2025. 

What is a sustainable factory?

A sustainable factory is one that uses renewable energy and is carbon neutral.

How do Garnier reduce water consumption?

Garnier is re-thinking water use across its sites to significantly reduce its industrial water consumption. We already have three “waterloop” factories, where 100% of industrial water use (for cleaning and cooling, for example) is re-treated, recycled or reused water. We no longer need fresh water for these processes, which is a great step forward! 
By treating and reusing high quality water in an internal loop, we are able to reduce our water consumption and the factory’s environmental impact. Our four “waterloop” factories save millions of litres of water each year and have inspired many other factories worldwide to do the same. 

How does Garnier reduce their carbon impact?

As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce our products’ environmental impact, we will support all our Garnier industrial sites in going carbon neutral and by adopting 100% renewable energy in the next five years.
