EcoVadis, a sustainability rating platform, has awarded the Zumtobel Group a gold medal for the first time. After receiving silver status several times, the company leaped to gold by continuously optimising its CSR activities along its value chain, thus joining the top three percent of the 75,000+ companies assessed.
“More and more companies and decision-makers take sustainability criteria into account in their procurement and purchasing decisions. With EcoVadis, we take the Zumtobel Group’s sustainability performance to a level of legitimate and independent comparability with more than 75,000 enterprises. It makes me very proud that we have been awarded the gold medal for our performance and that the Zumtobel Group ranks among the top three percent of all companies assessed,” says Mario Wintschnig, CSR Manager, Zumtobel Group.
The Group was awarded gold status due to significant improvements in the overall rating of the topics analysed by EcoVadis. The EcoVadis certification assesses companies in four different areas. The Zumtobel Group was ranked in the top one percent in the Environment category and the total score. In the Labour and Human Rights category (top eight percent), Sustainable Procurement (top ten percent), and Ethics (top five percent), the company is also in the upper field of the ranking.
The Zumtobel Group is now striving for the platinum medal, the highest possible award. This will support the company’s sustainability measures and the target of climate neutrality by 2025.
