Vetter Gets Gold Rating from EcoVadis
Vetter has achieved a gold rating in the renowned, independent EcoVadis sustainability ranking. This achievement displays the firm's continuous efforts toward sustainability and the protection of the planet.
The Company has significantly improved its score compared to the last evaluation, achieving 72 points out of 100. This places it among the top 5% of all participating companies in the industry.
Vetter has a long-standing commitment to sustainability as part of its business strategy and has recently received positive results in its efforts in areas such as the environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. The company used international CSR standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and ISO 26000 to guide its approach.
“Tens of thousands of companies around the world, including many of our customers, use EcoVadis as an indicator of sustainable business practices. They also incorporate the independent assessments into their selection of suppliers and business partners," explains Henryk Badack, Vetter’s Senior Vice President Technical Service/Internal Project Management.
"Simply talking about this topic is never enough in our opinion," states Vetter Managing Director Thomas Otto. "With our activities involving social, economic, and ecological sustainability, we want to have a positive impact on the regions with our sites."
"We are very proud that our far-reaching initiatives in many areas around sustainable corporate governance have had a significant impact on the EcoVadis rating and that we were, once again, able to demonstrate improvement over previous years. The positive external evaluation is a strong achievement and further motivates us to continue this great development transparently among our employees, customers, and partners, as well as the patients and society," said Vetter Managing Director Peter Soelkner.
