We received our new certificate from EcoVadis on December 4th 2020 and we’re pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded a Gold Rating for our achievements within sustainability.
In recent years, sustainability requirements for companies like ours have expanded massively. It’s now more important than ever to make a commitment to practices and procedures that protect workers and the environment.
The EcoVadis assessment evaluates how well a company has integrated certain key principles into the running of their business. The four main areas are: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. According to our results, we performed well across every major area, scoring especially high for Labor & Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement.
GPA Global has held an EcoVadis certificate for several years, but – following the latest assessment – we have a new rating that places us within the top 5% of companies globally.
Our Gold Rating will remain valid until December 2021. By the time we are reassessed we hope to have achieved even more of our sustainability goals.
