LOCAL PRESENCE, GLOBAL STRENGTH
In France, Spain and the USA, our sites have the autonomy necessary for their agility in order to support customers locally while taking into account their ecosystems.
The group’s departments help them gain complementary expertise, transfer good ideas, promote the co-construction of technical or organizational innovation and facilitate the dissemination of feedback between our teams. The aim is to stimulate collective intelligence and inspire best practices that are then replicated wherever we feel they are appropriate. Diversity is a driving force behind this approach. “One Verescence” is, in a way, our version of the “cross-fertilization” system cherished by company’s promoting learning and empowerment.

AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO LOCAL REALITIES, ALL ALIGNED WITH THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
Since 2018, 100% of our sites have been certified to the highest standards. For example, ISO 22716. This internationally recognized standard is used by European authorities to identify cosmetic products (containers and contents) manufactured according to best practices. Verescence has obtained this certification not only for its European sites but also across the Atlantic.
MAXIMIZE THE SORTING OF GLASS IN CLUSTERS
To minimize the environmental impact of our activity while contributing to the dynamism of our territories, Verescence has decided to set up its sorting activities at its manufacturing sites all over the world. With this in mind, between 2017 and 2019 we doubled the number of sorters at our main French site in Mers-les-Bains. In Spain, 100% of sorting is now carried out at the La Granja site with two service providers based on the premises. This virtuous clustering should enable us to achieve our 2020 objective of 90% on-site sorting. Verescence has already increased from 40% in 2017 to over 80% in 2019.
