Verescence, world leader in glass bottles for the perfume and cosmetics industries, has been awarded the EcoVadis 2022 Platinum Medal for its environmental, social and societal leadership. This is the highest distinction awarded by EcoVadis, the platform for assessing corporate social and environmental performance (CSR).
Verescence in the top 1% of best-rated companies in 2022
With a score of 80/100, the Verescence Group improves its overall score by one point compared to 2020, and is included in the closed circle of 1 % top-performing companies, a position the glassmaker has held since 2018.
Its three French sites (Mers-les-Bains / Abbeville / Écouché-les-Vallées), its two North American sites (Covington / Sparta) and its Spanish site (La Granja de San Ildefonso) also maintain their platinum medals in 2022 with a score of 83/100, while its South Korean subsidiary Verescence Pacific obtains the gold medal for its very first evaluation just over a year after joining the group.
The EcoVadis rating is valid for one year, which commits Verescence to continuing to improve its CSR policy in order to maintain its platinum status.
A "leader" level in the EcoVadis carbon scorecard
The EcoVadis carbon scorecard provides an independent assessment of a company's greenhouse gas emissions performance and management system. Verescence has achieved the highest level of performance: leader.
In early 2022, the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative validated Verescence's decarbonization trajectory to reduce its CO2 emissions by 40 % by 2034, and recognized it as compatible with the scenario of limiting global warming to well below 2°C compared with the pre-industrial era, in line with the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Paris Climate Agreement. As the Group's objective is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, Verescence is committed to redoubling its efforts to ensure that its climate transition plan converges towards a 1.5°C trajectory.
