2015, what happened?

In its second year, the BIC Sustainable Development Barometer increased its score from 3.8 to 7.6 (out of 10 points).

Products commitments have experienced significant increase including; in particular reaching the objective of 50% of products with at least one environmental benefit and the creation of 5 products adapted to developing markets. Commitment 5 (environmental performance of factories) moved back due to an increase in the ratio of the production of non-recycled waste. Packaging and transportation commitments are in line with expectations for the year.

Finally, the significant increase in the share of audited (with rating system) contract manufacturers helped consolidating the overall score.
