In January 2023, Tridonic was awarded the EcoVadis Silver Medal for the first time in recognition of its EcoVadis rating for sustainability. This puts Tridonic in the top 25 percent of more than 100,000 EcoVadis rated companies worldwide.
With 68 points out of a 100, Tridonic was placed well above the industry average by rating agency EcoVadis, especially in the Environment category where it scored 90. Its overall rating places Tridonic in the top four percent of companies in the lighting industry. EcoVadis is a leading international agency that rates the sustainability performance of companies in more than 175 countries. The rating platform assesses the performance of companies in the Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Sustainable Procurement and Ethics themes.
Tridonic had its sustainability activities evaluated by this independent institute to increase transparency, meet the expectations of customers and partners and identify potential for improvement. “The EcoVadis Silver Medal is independent confirmation that validates our efforts and achievements on our path to sustainability. We are delighted to have received such a high rating the first time. We see this as an incentive to make further improvements in preparation for the next rating,” said Tridonic CEO Hugo Rohner.
This was the first time that Tridonic put itself forward for the sustainability assessment. The company was able to draw on a wide variety of sustainability activities that it has been implementing over many years. Back in August 2022 Tridonic was the first company in the electronics industry to be given the Cradle to Cradle Certified® sustainability award in bronze for a lighting component. With its LED modules in the LLE, QLE and CLE product groups Tridonic has met the strict requirements of the standard for recyclable and responsibly manufactured products. The company has bundled all its sustainability measures in the “Sustainable Tridonic” programme, which is part of the company’s target of achieving climate neutrality by 2025. Other aspects of the programme include the introduction of fully recyclable packaging materials by 2024 and certification according to the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard for all premium products by 2030 at the latest.
