After having reached 66 out of 100 points last year, Nordzucker again improved on the result and is therefore in the top one percent of all food producers in the EcoVadis system and in the top one percent of all other companies rated in EcoVadis.
We have been rated in four different areas: Environment, Labour Practices, Fair Business Practices and Sustainable Procurement. EcoVadis assesses the policies and measures put in place as well as the company reporting published. The assessment is made on the basis of the companies’ answers to a survey which has been adapted to their country, sector and size and on the basis of supporting documentation as well as public and stakeholder (NGOs, trade unions, press) information.
The EcoVadis methodology is based on international sustainability standards (Global Reporting Initiative, United Nations Global Compact, ISO 26000) and is supervised by a scientific committee of CSR and supply chain experts to ensure reliable third-party CSR assessment.
EcoVadis operates a platform that provides companies with data from global supply chain suppliers, allowing them to compare different aspects of sustainability across multiple suppliers. Potential and existing customers thus have a decision-making aid in choosing their suppliers with regard to their sustainability efforts.
