verescence launched Glass Score, a tool that helps to lighten and therefore reduce the environmental impact of glass bottles from the design and conception phases.
With Glass Score, Verescence offers its clients the possibility of assess the level of weight reduction of your products, without the influence of the size of the container. The rating system assigns a score from A+ (lightest) to F to each bottle, allowing brands to compare their products on a universal scale and develop new glass weight reduction projects.
The average score of perfume and cosmetic bottles on the market is between B and C, and Verescence's goal is to guide its clients towards a more virtuous Glass Score by proposing realistic weight reduction targets that respect the initial design of the project. .
Samuel Joachim, Director of Innovation and Development at Verescence, commented: “Glass Score is a simple and effective tool that allows us to understand the level of weight reduction of a glass bottle or jar, propose weight reduction solutions and help our customers to make informed decisions. in ecodesign, an initiative that has already generated great interest from our main clients”.
The launch of Glass Score is part of Verescence's Glass As a Service program, which aims to offer a full range of eco-design services to its clients since 2017, including life cycle assessment (LCA), recyclability study and 3D modeling.
