18-Sep-2020

This third report highlights the supplier’s CSR achievements including the development of a new high-end recycled glass

Verescence has unveiled its 2019-20 CSR report confirming ‘excellent’ CSR results from 2019 that are said to be in line with its ‘Glass Made To Last’ approach.

The France-based glassmaker highlighted a CDP score of ‘B’ for greenhouse gas emission reduction and water management, as awarded by UK carbon disclosure organisation CDP, as well as a Gold-rated EcoVadis assessment for the second year in a row.

Further to this, the company has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to structure a long-term approach to reducing its emissions and energy consumption.

Verescence said it recorded a 130% increase in bottles produced from its Verre Infini NEO glass, a high-end glass made from 25% post-consumer cullet, 65% post-industrial cullet and only 10% raw material, in 2019 and further adds that the company is developing a new high-end recycled glass offer for its customers.

Thomas Riou, CEO of Verescence, said: “We can be proud of the progress made in 2019 which confirms the relevance of our 'Glass Made to Last' approach – a solid CSR strategy that is now fully integrated into our overall strategy, with sustainability at the heart of our corporate project ‘Verescence 2022 – Forming the Future’.
