Beckers Group Awarded EcoVadis Gold Standard For Second Straight Year
Berlin, Germany - Beckers Group announces that it has been awarded Gold rating by EcoVadis for the second consecutive year. This prestigious certification, awarded by an independent third-party
organization, recognizes companies for their outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance.
The Gold Standard, the highest rating offered by EcoVadis, places Beckers Group in the top 5% of companies EcoVadis assessed globally in the category “Manufacture of paints, varnishes and similar coatings”.
In October 2018, an internal cross-functional team conducted a global assessment of Beckers’ CSR performance, looking closely at four core fields: Environment, Ethics, Labour Practices & Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement.
Nicklas Augustsson, Global Sustainability Director at Beckers, commented, “Not only have we retained the gold rating at Group level, but we have also increased our overall score from 63 in 2017 to 65 in 2018. This result is a reflection of our focus
and efforts in implementing robust ethical practices, while continuously improving on the three other themes.”
All Beckers sites were praised for this collective renewed success, which highlights once more Beckers’ commitment to the sustainable development of the company.
EcoVadis operates an online platform allowing companies to benchmark their CSR performance and monitor the environmental and social performance of their suppliers on a global basis.
