The L’Oreal Canada Distribution Center has been promoted to the highest ranking of the Ici On Recycle Program: Level 3 – Performance. The Center was recognized for its excellent standard of residual waste management. The Distribution Center stores 20 million units of 10,000 products, and ships more than 97 million units annually throughout the country. The award is the second such certification for L’Oreal Canada—its manufacturing plant received the company’s first award in 2009.

A new report from Ethical Markets Media says that private, green-focused investments now top more than $2 trillion globally. That $2 trillion number includes investments made between 2007 and 2010, according to the Green Transition Scoreboard. The U.S-specific venture capital investment in cleantech companies in 2010 is estimated to be $4 billion, and about $7.8 billion worldwide.
