We are delighted to have achieved the internationally recognised EcoVadis Gold Award for our Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Visibility of where companies are on their sustainability journey and how their supply chains operate are becoming more important to our customers. We are therefore, especially proud to be ranked in the top 2% of all suppliers assessed to-date by EcoVadis.
Who is EcoVadis?
EcoVadis provides a common platform for businesses to examine compliance against emerging green and sustainability requirements. Previously, in order to assess the progress suppliers were making in developing sustainable business practices, individual questionnaires had been developed on a piecemeal basis. This led to reduced consistency and often less clarity in terms of the information being collected.
By using methodology built on international CSR standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and ISO 26000, EcoVadis has developed a comprehensive rating system, which is highly regarded. The EcoVadis platform has now therefore emerged as a standard for suppliers sustainability performance monitoring and is used across many different industry sectors.
We joined the EcoVadis programme because it offers a comprehensive and structured external assessment of our practices as a partner for our stakeholders. This both informs our customers of our progress in implementing sustainable systems and supports our journey in making continued improvements.
The Gold Award we have achieved applies across all of Lucite International’s global business units. Each business and site continues to work towards the Company’s sustainability targets, which you can read more about here. We would be delighted to discuss any aspects of sustainability in more detail with you. Contact us here.
