SPICE welcomes both corporate and non-corporate members. By joining the initiative, members will deepen their knowledge and strengthen their sustainable packaging policies alongside a network of committed organizations. Corporate Members take an active role in decisions when setting common definitions and assessment methods.
To become a Corporate Member, a company must comply with the following criteria:
+ Be an entity whose core business is to produce and place cosmetics products on the market ensuring the design of its packaging, or be a supplier of cosmetics packaging;
+ Pursue a comprehensive sustainable packaging strategy;
+ Use environmental footprinting as a reference point to inform the design of in-house packaging;
+ Commit to active participation in all SPICE Steering Committees;
+ Allocate the appropriate financial resources to pay a reasonable SPICE annual fee (to be equally shared between Corporate Members).
Associate Members may be professional organizations, NGOs, eco-organizations or academic partners, as well as companies outside of the cosmetics industry.
