PolyComp GmbH awarded EcoVadis Silver Medal

EcoVadis Silver Medal

PolyComp GmbH decided for the first time to have its own sustainability management system and the corresponding measures and practices in the context of sustainability evaluated by EcoVadis at the end of 2022. We achieved a silver medal in the first attempt and thus belong to the best 18 percent of the companies evaluated by EcoVadis within the chemical industry.

EcoVadis is a provider in the still young and growing market for corporate sustainability ratings. For the rating, EcoVadis considers sustainability criteria in the four dimensions of environment, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. In terms of content, EcoVadis is guided by existing principles and standards such as the UN Global Compact or the conventions of the International Labour Organisation.

The far-reaching scope of the assessment makes it clear that coordination between the departments involved was necessary. The work was worthwhile. In all four assessed dimensions we achieved at least the grade "good" and were thus above the industry average in each case. We achieved particularly good results in the heavily weighted dimensions of environment and labour & human rights.

We are pleased with the good result and are striving for an improvement in the next evaluation.
