L’Oréal USA has installed solar panels at its Little Rock manufacturing facility. The first renewable energy solution of its kind in Arkansas, the unit provides enough electricity to power 100 percent of the plant’s outdoor lighting requirements. L’Oréal has installed solar power units at two other U.S. facilities, and also uses solar technology in its plants in India, Spain, Mexico, and China. 20 percent of the company’s electricity used globally last year was from renewable sources. 

SKF has announced its 2012 Meet the World football tournaments, to be held in the 20 countries where SKF has a presence starting this month and continuing through June. Winning teams from each country will then travel to Sweden to participate in the Gothia Cup, the world’s largest and most international youth football tournament. SKF is a Sweden-based, global supplier of products, solutions, and services related to roller bearings, seals, and lubrication systems.
