Paris, France – IBG France (Beauty Services Europe), an Innovative Beauty Group company and a leading global beauty solutions provider, has received the Platinum Rating from EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. The Platinum Rating is the highest accolade EcoVadis awards businesses for corporate social responsibility, and places IBG France among the top one per cent of over 90,000 EcoVadis-rated companies across all industries worldwide.
The objective of the EcoVadis methodology is to measure the quality of a company’s sustainability management system through its policies, actions and results. The rating is based on a variety of sustainability criteria, with the assessment tool providing detailed insight into a company’s performance in four key areas: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. These criteria are based on international sustainability standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000.
“We are incredibly proud to have achieved the EcoVadis Platinum Rating recognizing our overall performance as a responsible and sustainable business,” said Xavier Leclerc de Hauteclocque, CEO of IBG. “This achievement is a testament to our team’s ongoing commitment and dedication to continually designing products, packaging and processes that meet the evolving needs of our customers while always keeping sustainability top of mind.”

In addition, IBG established its own 2022-2025 CSR Roadmap defining 11 key objectives that will guide its business practices in the years to come.
