Schréder has been awarded the Gold level, with a score of 71 out of 100 points, in the EcoVadis 2023 internationally recognised sustainability rating. This rating places Schréder in the top 5% of global suppliers across all industries and recognises our continuous commitment to all aspects of sustainability.
EcoVadis evaluates more than 100,000 organisations in over 175 countries and in over 200 industries every year. Based on 21 criteria, the rating assesses a company’s performance in four categories: Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.
Schréder has participated in EcoVadis since 2020, steadily increasing our rating every year from Bronze to Gold for the second time in 2023. Our higher rating illustrates our determination and commitment to systematically improving our sustainability performance. For 2023, this achievement is thanks to progress in all areas with a special focus on our SBTi commitment to reduce our CO2 emissions and a number of new HR initiatives for our people.
Improving our sustainability performance is an ongoing journey and we are really pleased to have been awarded this Gold rating for the second year in a row with a higher score. We are constantly analysing our actions to see where we can improve and acting on these insights. This rating demonstrates our progress and the commitment of our teams to responsible business practices.
Sustainability is embedded in our collaborative mindset. We are continuously looking for new ways to further reduce our CO2 emissions, manufacture more sustainably and provide our customers with even more efficient, sustainable and responsible solutions to protect our planet. This rating reassures our customers and partners that they have a responsible and trustworthy supplier who is committed to the local communities in which we operate.
