Paris, November 3rd, 2020 – Verescence, the world’s leading glassmaker for the beauty industry, today announced that it has received the Platinum medal from EcoVadis, the highest level of recognition that distinguishes the top 1% of the world’s most advanced companies in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Already a gold medalist for two consecutive years, Verescence has been awarded Platinum, a new medal category created in 2020 by EcoVadis. This is the highest recognition that distinguishes companies with an overall score greater to 73/100.

Verescence scored 79/100 in 2020, a 2-point improvement compared to last year. The glassmaker confirms its rank among the top 1% of the most committed and most advanced companies in CSR among the 60,000 companies assessed by EcoVadis worldwide, all sectors combined.

All of its production sites in France, Spain and the United States have also achieved Platinum level. This result is a first in the glass packaging industry for Perfumery & Cosmetics.

Alain Thorré, CSR Director of Verescence stated:

We are very honored to achieve the highest level of CSR performance with the new EcoVadis Platinum medal for all of our sites around the world. These results once again confirm the relevance of our Glass Made to Last approach and encourage us to continue our efforts to achieve the ambitious objectives set by the Group, in particular as part the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
