Our group of companies has now been awarded platinum for the second time in a row. This puts us among the top 1% of companies rated in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
EcoVadis is a provider of universal sustainability ratings, working with over 90000 companies in around 160 countries. But EcoVadis not only ranks companies in different areas, it also helps them to improve their sustainability.
The right process for sustainability
First, we were assessed according to international standards, taking into account the industry, the size of the company and the country.
Afterwards we were rated on a point system from 1-100 in 4 areas:
- labor & human rights
- sustainable procurement
After benchmarking and comparison with other companies, the ranking takes place.
We performed excellently in all areas as well as in the overall rating and were able to increase our CSR score from 78 (2021) to 80 (2022).
Subsequently, all companies receive suggestions for improvement and targeted measures to advance sustainability from year to year.
How do we continue to improve sustainability?
From 01.01.2023, for example, all of our locations will purchase “Comfort Power Climate Natureumwe”. This means that we will use 100% of our electricity from environmentally friendly hydropower plants.
We are very proud to be able to make our contribution to a more sustainable world and are looking forward to many more exciting corporate social responsibility projects together with the Sopra Steria Group.
