Fragrance company joins UN global compact for sustainability
The Spanish fragrance company Eurofragance joins the United Nations Global Compact and takes responsibility for aligning its operations with the initiative's Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
The company also commits to take action in support of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Eurofragance has joined the commitment of thousands of companies around the world to take responsible business actions for a more sustainable world. One of its challenges is to achieve eco-efficiency, producing more with less, reducing its environmental impact and generating less waste. Laurent Mercier, CEO of Eurofragance, said: "Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are part of our DNA. With this membership, we formalise our commitment to the initiative and its principles, and we reaffirm our dedication to contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals".
One of Eurofragance's main sustainability targets is to minimise waste at all its sites over the next three years. The company aims to implement a transition towards a circular economy that will close the life cycle of waste, products and energy so that they become useful again and can be reincorporated into the production cycle. In this sense, Eurofragance promotes various actions such as the sustainable management of waste through certified 100% recycled steel drums and the recovery of plastic bevelling from adhesive labels.
