(Europe) – Sustainability rating platform EcoVadis has awarded the Zumtobel Group a gold medal for the first time.
After receiving silver status several times, the company was granted gold after continuously optimising its CSR activities along its value chain, and in the process joining the top 3% of the 75,000+ companies assessed.
Mario Wintschnig, CSR Manager at Zumtobel Group, said: “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 3% of all companies assessed.”
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. Zumtobel Group was ranked in the top 1% in the Environment category and the total score. In the Labour and Human Rights category (top 8%), Sustainable Procurement (top 10%), and Ethics (top 5%), the company is also in the upper field of the ranking.
The Zumtobel Group has now set its sights on the Platinum medal – the highest possible award. This will support the company’s sustainability measures and its target of climate neutrality by 2025.
