Attention to detail
Positive factors which contributed to our 82nd percentile ranking (among EcoVadis-rated companies in all industries) included our strong performance in human and employee rights, our membership of the UN Global Compact, the fact we carry out employee satisfaction surveys, safety policies for employees and sub-contractors and regular employee training with regard to health and safety risks.
Additional strengths highlighted included ethics awareness training, provision of employee health checks and sustainable procurement practices that focus on material issues, with on-site auditing of vendors for performance and social values.
This EcoVadis Silver Medal is positive confirmation of our industry-leading sustainability efforts. But this doesn’t mean we can stop here. Sustainability is an evolving challenge and we will continue to strive to become an even more sustainable business, assisted by the transparency provided via EcoVadis reporting.
