Chairman of L’Oréal, Jean-Paul Agon, will be presented with the 2022 Appeal of Conscience Award by the Appeal of Conscious Foundation – an interfaith organization dedicated to religious freedom and human rights – alongside Robert Kraft, founder, Chairman and CEO of the Kraft Group. The Appeal of Conscience Award (ACF) is presented to visionary business executives with a sense of social responsibility who use their resources and vast reach across borders to better serve the global community.

Previous Appeal of Conscience Award Honorees included prominent business leaders such as: Dr. Noubar Afeyan, Bernard Arnault, Mary Barra, Barbara Bush, Michael Bloomberg, Alex Gorsky, Robert Iger, Muhtar Kent, Coretta Scott King, Brian Moynihan, Virginia Rometty, Stephen A. Schwarzman, Masayoshi Son, Paul Volcker Timotheus Höttges, Stephen M. Ross, Susan Wojcicki, and Dr. Albert Bourla.

Jean-Paul reflects on the recognition sharing, “It is an immense honor for me – and for the entire L’Oréal community– to receive the Appeal of Conscience Award from an organization that has been advancing an inspiring vision of human peace for more than 50 years. At L’Oréal, we aim to always operate our business with a deep conscience, commitment, and sense of responsibility for our world. To have our collective contributions recognized brings us all a great feeling of pride.”

The 57th Annual Appeal of Conscience Awards will be held at The Pierre Hotel in New York on Monday, September 19, 2022. Dinner Chairs for the 57th Annual Awards Dinner are Brian Moynihan, Chair and CEO of Bank of America, a past ACF awardee, and David Greenberg, CEO of L’Oréal USA.

As someone who has worked with Jean-Paul Agon for decades, I can say with complete confidence, on behalf of the entire L’Oréal community, that L’Oréal is a more responsible company, more actively engaged in the world, and more aware of its positive power as a global corporate citizen because of his vision and leadership,” said David Greenberg, CEO of L’Oréal USA.
