Lakme Salon launches sustainability initiative

By Retail4Growth Team | December 16, 2019

Lakme Salon aims to reduce its carbon footprint and build a sustainable business model through this initiative, while also inspiring their 1 million+ customers to adopt environment-friendly practices

Lakme Salon brings alive the vision to ‘Beautify the Future’ by educating talent in 115 Lakme Academy powered by Aptech centres and creating career and entrepreneurship opportunities for 4000+ team members across 460+ salons across the country.

Taking ahead this mission, Lakme Salon launched its network-wide sustainability initiative under the campaign ‘Happy New You’. One of the largest chains with 460+ salons across 154+ cities, Lakme Salon aims to reduce its carbon footprint and build a sustainable business model through this initiative, while also inspiring their 1 million+ customers to adopt environment-friendly practices.

Lakme Salon took the first steps in this direction in 2018 by making small changes in their operations i.e switching to LED lighting, installing water-saving nozzles and maintaining optimal a/c temperatures in the salons. Additionally, they planted 40,000 trees that will offset the total carbon footprint of 69 Salons through electricity consumption, in 20 years.

Taking this initiative one step higher, the 2nd phase of the campaign launching on December 13 will have all 460+ salons take multiple actions to go green.

These initiatives include a complete shift to e-bills, thereby reducing paper consumption;  implementing waste segregation in the salons; installation of energy-efficient fixtures that will reduce energy consumption by up to 75 pc; switching to biodegradable consumables; introducing glass bottles – replacing single-use plastic and adding high oxygen indoor plants

“The Unilever Sustainability mission has inspired our team to articulate and live the Lakme Salon vision – BEAUTIFY THE FUTURE – to create a beautiful future for our consumers, employees and franchisee partners by building a sustainable business,” said Pushkaraj Shenai, CEO, Lakme Lever. He further said that the company is making Lakme Salon operations sustainable from December through our various initiatives. Our vision is being supported and led by our franchisee partners. While the sustainability initiatives are being implemented across the network, we have also launched 8 green salons with our franchise partners this year. These salons use eco-friendly design and materials in construction. We will scale this up with more partners in 2020.”
