Medmix Beauty (Geka) repeats its success with the Ecovadis platinum medal

Geka Earns EcoVadis Platinum Sustainability Rating for Third Consecutive Year Reinforcing its commitment to creating a greener beauty industry, Geka has been awarded its third Platinum sustainability rating by EcoVadis. A leading provider of high-precision cosmetic application solutions, Geka, a medmix Beauty brand, continues to demonstrate industry leadership by being among the 1% of top performing companies. EcoVadis provides the world's most trusted corporate sustainability assessments. Companies rely on EcoVadis to provide comprehensive sustainability reports that accurately assess their overall performance and inform their sustainability strategies. Participants can encourage transparency by sharing this information with stakeholders and use it to develop sustainability strategies.

The reports focus on four main categories that together provide an overall score. Within its sector, Geka ranked among the top 1 % of companies in labor and human rights, as well as among the top 2 % in environment and sustainable sourcing (both up from the top 6 % in 2021). Oliver Vogel, CEO of Geka, said, " The annual assessment of our sustainability efforts by EcoVadis is an essential part of our overall strategy. We want to offer innovative cosmetic solutions that do not compromise the beauty of our planet. Our notable improvement in the Environment and Sustainable Sourcing categories illustrates how we are continuously working to optimize our sustainability. I would like to thank everyone for their efforts in this regard.

EcoVadis is not the only independent expert Geka works with to transparently help its customers and suppliers achieve their environmental goals. Recently, the company committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 % in 2029 compared to 2019, which was independently validated by the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi). In 2022, International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISSC) Plus was awarded to its cosmetic packaging injection blow molding facility in Elgin, Illinois.

Recently, offering more detail and transparency, Geka released its first annual sustainability report, which assessed its environmental, social and governance performance from October 2020 to September 2021.

As a member of medmix, a global leader in high-precision delivery devices, Geka, along with all areas of the company's business, continues to reduce the carbon footprint of its operations. In its supply chain, air freight shipments have been significantly reduced. The percentage of low-carbon energy used in its facilities is steadily increasing, while recycled and bio-based polymers are widely adopted in product design. Geka is committed to sending no more waste to landfill by 2025. Sustainable and innovative beauty products are already on the shelves. For example, the Reborn collection of mascara, lip gloss, eyebrow brushes, cleansing pads and accessories is made at 93 % from bio-based and recycled materials, offering end users a truly sustainable beauty option.
