Emmanuelle Baillou, Development Manager for the Purchasing Community, L’Oréal, looks back at the launch of this ethical guide: "When the “The Way We Buy” guide was launched in July 2011, we organised question and answer sessions to discuss ethical questions with professional buyers. We gave each of them their own printed copy of the guide. They are ambassadors for the guide, both in-house and with our suppliers.”
