EcoVadis is the world’s largest independent provider of business sustainability ratings, assessing a network of more than 75,000 companies.

Silgan Dispensing’s rating score and Gold Certification places it in the 94th percentile of all companies worldwide rated by EcoVadis and the top 3 percent of those companies rated in the manufacturing of plastic products.

Why standardization is key to driving sustainability across the packaging industry

How has the pandemic impacted consumers' use and relationship with fragrances?

The impact scent can have on a mood and overall sense of wellbeing is nearly impossible to overstate. One fragrance can elicit feelings of coziness and comfort, while another can give a person a sense of luxury and distinction. Given the seemingly endless variations of fragrances and personal uses, it’s no surprise the fragrance market has seen such steady profitability in recent years – at least, prior to COVID-19.
