|A S Harrison & Co are very pleased to announce that the results for our EcoVadis assessment are in – and we have been awarded a Silver medal!|
An EcoVadis sustainability assessment gives business a platform to understand, benchmark and improve performance across a range of measures such as environment, ethics, labour & human rights and sustainable procurement.
It is important for organisations to be confident in their supply chains to reflect sustainability values and goals which is why as your valued business partner we wanted to share the good news about our recent Silver medal rating on EcoVadis. It means we are highly committed to always improving our service standards and capabilities for you.
The result of our first assessment scored within the 83rd percentile of all companies that have been assessed.
Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 75,000 rated companies such as Coca Cola, Clariant, Nestle and Johnson & Johnson.
The process allowed us to identify strengths and weaknesses whilst completing the assessment and the results have confirmed areas for improvement. Recently we have started many exciting projects as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program which include running a Materiality Study, assessing carbon neutral targets and an environmentally sustainable procurement review.
By working closely with our business partners, we will be able to see great progress in this area before our next assessment.
Overall, this is a fantastic result and a great starting point to work towards to be your top supply partner of choice.
A S Harrison & Co has a strong commitment to it’s Corporate Social Responsibility program. The eight person Committee works across three key pillars of Employees & People, Ethics and the Environment.
