Co-founded by L’Oréal and Quantis in 2018, SPICE will develop and publish business-oriented methodologies and data to support resilient decision making to improve the environmental performance of the entire packaging value chain. These developments will be the result of collective working sessions where members will share experience and knowledge for the benefit of the initiative and eventually to cosmetics packaging sustainability achievements on a grand scale.
Joining SPICE is the latest in a series of steps Mary Kay has taken to expand its commitment to sustainability. In 2018, the company opened the Richard R. Rogers Manufacturing/R&D Center in Lewisville, Texas, which functions as a Zero Waste to Landfill facility and was awarded the coveted LEED Silver certification. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). In 2017, the Mary Kay China office in Shanghai also received LEED Gold certification for its green building leadership and sustainability.
Mary Kay ranked No. 17 on Beauty Packaging’s annual list of Top 20 Global Beauty Companies. See the full list here.
