The company feels encouraged to forge ahead with its sustainability program and rally as many of its partners as possible.
Eurofragance, the Spanish multinational headquartered in Barcelona, has been awarded an EcoVadis Gold Medal in recognition of its sustainability efforts. Since receiving the EcoVadis Silver Medal in 2109, the perfume manufacturer has accelerated its efforts towards greater sustainability. The company's local and international efforts and the resulting positive results are published in the fragrance house's annual sustainability report.
Encouraged by results and recognition, Eurofragance sets its sights even higher
The multinational, which was assessed by the recognized sustainability rating provider EcoVadis in the cleaning products, detergents and fragrances segment, achieved a sustainability score of 77 points out of 100. In particular, compared to other companies in its sector assessed by the certification platform, Eurofragance scored well above average in the areas of "environment" and "labor and human rights". Nevertheless, Eurofragance also addressed the three key pillars of sustainable development.
Diana March, Global Director of Sustainability and Technical Compliance at Eurofragance, admits that it's nice to be recognized for one's efforts and says: " Virtually every Eurofragance employee is committed to sustainable development, and this EcoVadis Gold Medal recognizes the hard work and dedication of each and every one of them. It also encourages us to set our sights even higher and keep moving forward." . Mr. March adds that with almost 400 employees, spread across seven subsidiaries worldwide, there are always several sustainability projects underway at each site.
Eurofragance's Icon program spreads its wings around the world
At the end of 2022, Eurofragance launched its Icon program to improve the quality and sustainability of the raw materials it acquires to create fragrances. Through this wide-ranging program, Eurofragance encourages all its suppliers to produce and market ingredients whose sustainability values have been verified (for example, environmentally friendly, ethically sourced, biodegradable...).
On the subject of the Icon program, Diana March says: " Our sustainability slogan is "make fragrances, take care of people and the planet" and I really think we're on the right track, but it's important to get as many people on board as possible. I feel that's exactly what Icon is doing. Together, we'll shape a sustainable future. "
