After two consecutive years achieving a Gold Level evaluation status, Solenis has earned the Platinum Recognition Level for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance by EcoVadis, a collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains.
"We are extremely delighted that Solenis has been able to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability and in return was awarded the Platinum status, EcoVadis' highest possible rating," said Dr. Daniel Grell, Chief Safety, Regulatory and Quality Officer at Solenis. "Building further on our internal emphasis on people, performance and continuous improvement in the area of sustainability, we were able to continue this rewarding journey. As a result, we improved our overall score from last year by more than 15 percent!"
Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals for water-intensive industries, remains among the top 1% of performers evaluated by EcoVadis in the chemical industry category.
The EcoVadis methodology is built on international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000, covering 200+ purchasing categories, 160+ countries and 20+ CSR issues grouped in four themes: environmental impacts of operations and products, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
"Deepening our involvement in the EcoVadis assessment helps us to focus our sustainability initiatives, as reflected by the independent review of our scorecard. We have achieved a nicely balanced approach and rating in these four key areas emphasized by EcoVadis," reported Grell.
"This result will continue to increase the trust of our customers as we focus on enabling them to meet their sustainability objectives," he said. "Helping customers reduce their environmental footprint is at the heart of our business."
