CSR ranking by EcoVadis Officially sustainable
We are proud to wear the silver EcoVadis medal. Not because we like to decorate ourselves or blindly believe in awards. Rather, we are more concerned with the greatest possible transparency in dealing with terms that are quickly thrown out for advertising purposes in our industry. So we now officially know that we are in the top 4 percent of the companies in our sector assessed by EcoVadis with the CSR overall assessment on environmental, labour and human rights issues! Across all sectors and countries, we are thus among the 25 percent of the best companies evaluated by EcoVadis – 45,000 companies after all.
What is EcoVadis?
EcoVadis provides companies with holistic CSR ratings (Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR). The rating covers a wide range of management systems, with a special focus on the impact of the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Companies are evaluated with regard to topics relevant to their size, location and industry. These evidence-based assessments are translated into scorecards with scores from zero to one hundred (0-100) and medals (bronze, silver and gold). In addition, the scorecards identify strengths and areas for improvement to better target sustainability efforts and create corrective action plans to improve CSR performance.
Why is this so important to us?
We have invested a lot of time in the topic to review our sustainability promises and statements. It is not enough for us to simply claim that we take responsibility. We want it all the way! The very extensive survey, whose answers may only be documented, has given us an objective view within the EvoVadis framework. We will now continue to work on this. Because we are very close to the gold medal that we are striving for!
