EcoVadis evaluates more than 75,000 companies from more than 200 industries
Ecolean’s sustainability performance has been awarded a Platinum rating by global sustainability ratings provider EcoVadis, placing it in the top 1% of companies evaluated.
“Obtaining the Platinum EcoVadis medal is solid proof that our approach to sustainability is on a very high level, even world class, which further confirms that we are on the right path. Sustainability has always been a cornerstone in our strategy, and was actually the reason why our company was founded, based on the idea of using a minimal amount of raw material to produce lightweight packaging solutions in a whole new way,” said Peter L Nilsson, CEO, Ecolean Group.
“This is something I know customers appreciate. The world’s largest producers within food, dairy and beverages, place great demands on packaging suppliers regarding sustainability and I am very proud that Ecolean has been confirmed as one of the top-rated packaging companies in terms of sustainability globally,” said Anna Palminger, Sustainability Director, Ecolean Group.
The company says it wants to continuously improve, to meet consumer and customer demands, and at the same time have minimal impact on the planet. The EcoVadis assessment is designed to indicate which areas of a company’s sustainability work are strong and where they can be further improved.
In 2021, Ecolean improved its results from Gold to the highest Platinum rating. The score is based on strategic and systematic work with clear objectives within areas such as the environment, governance and social aspects, as well as through the monitoring and transparent reporting of sustainability data of its packages and filling machines.
“The EcoVadis assessments are also a good way of helping us to point out what we can do better. For example, one way to further improve our sustainability performance going forward, is to work with suppliers to set standards and use green procurement methods in our supply chain, which is something that we have started and will deepen in the coming years,” said Palminger.
