In our factories, warehouses and offices, respect for the environment goes in hand with a commitment to providing a healthy and safe place to work. Raising the bar Achieving sustainable growth means raising the bar on environmental performance and LOral has set itself significant long-term goals (opposite). These reflect our commitment to absolute reductions where possible and go further than targets set by governments. Where absolute reductions are not practicable, we aim for greater eco-efficiency and more environmentally friendly approaches. The operating efficiency of our factories and distribution centres is a priority at LOral and often has a significant beneficial impact on our environmental footprint as well as being an important part of providing safe and healthy places to work. Summary of 2009 LOral's manufacturing capacity increased by 4.6% thanks to factory innovations, particularly in haircare and make-up. Optimised cleaning routines and new "cold" processes are helping us to substantially reduce water and energy consumption. The group achieved absolute reductions in a number of areas: greenhouse gas emissions reduced, other atmospheric emissions reduced, water consumption reduced, transportable wastes generation reduced, wastewater quality index improved. We are also pleased to have achieved our safety target. While we made substantial progress in energy use per finished product and waste per finished product, we regret missing our targets in these areas.
