The sustainable commitment of igefa is also confirmed by independent parties.
This status means that igefa belongs among the best EcoVadis-evaluated companies worldwide.
The environment, working conditions, fair business practices and sustainable procurement are the core areas closely inspected by EcoVadis when assessing a company.
In these categories, igefa achieves far better values than the sector average - in some cases, even with double digits, as the EcoVadis performance overview shows.
“As a family-run company, we have been thinking and acting in a sustainable way for generations. Furthermore, it is important for us to have our current standard of development and our efforts with regard to our social responsibility (CSR) assessed regularly by independent third parties - particularly in light of the fact that the handling of sustainability issues is becoming an increasingly important factor when selecting suppliers”, explains Wolfgang Eichler, member of the igefa executive board and head of the igefa Sustainability Council.
“We are all the more happy about the great result of the EcoVadis assessment, which is at the same time an acknowledgement and an incentive to continue to consistently pursue the path we have chosen.”
EcoVadis is committed to “Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR) and is operating the first collaborative platform which provides CSR rankings of suppliers for global supply chains.
EcoVadis has developed an evaluation method which covers 150 purchasing categories, 110 countries and 21 CSR indicators.
Since it was founded in 2007, the platform has become a valued partner for purchasing organisations in over 120 global leader multinational companies.
Over 20,000 companies use EcoVadis to reduce risks, support innovations and create trust and transparency between business partners.
