Certified SYSTECODE* EXCELLENCE, Bourrassé has taken its commitment to the highest level, above and beyond the requirements of the International Code of Cork Stopper Manufacturing Practices (ICCSMP).


Bourrassé is naturally ethical and constantly seeks to ramp up its commitments. It is therefore certified FSC®, allowing it to supply FSC® 100% and FSC® MIX*** products. Through the certification, it supports responsible forestry management.

We have chosen to be supported and assessed by ECOVADIS (a facilitator for sustainable management of supply and marketing partners). In 2020, SOCORI was awarded a Bronze medal for its CSR performance.

Our professional equality index for 2020 is 87 out of 100 points.

* Systecode is a scheme introduced and supported by the European Cork Federation aimed at strictly ensuring enforcement of the Code, thereby guaranteeing the quality of the processes and products by certificate recipients. There are 3 levels: Basic, Premium and Excellence.
