EcoVadis awards BillerudKorsnäs highest rating for sustainability
BillerudKorsnäs has been awarded a Gold rating from EcoVadis for the fourth year in a row. The annual evaluation of 30,000 suppliers shows that BillerudKorsnäs is among the top 1 percent of all companies assessed.
EcoVadis is the leading system for evaluating suppliers' environmental aspects, working conditions, corporate social responsibility and subcontractors. Multinational brands with high ethical ambitions use the system to evaluate their supply chains in turn.
This year’s evaluation shows that BillerudKorsnäs is among the very best of all companies in the same industry and is also in the top percentage rank among all companies assessed, regardless of industry. It also shows that BillerudKorsnäs improved even more this year.
"EcoVadis confirms that our sustainability is at a high level and that we have structured work on environment and working conditions, clear guidelines regarding ethical issues and a systematic approach with our suppliers. The fact that we received very high scores in all areas assessed, well above the average of the group of paper and cardboard manufacturers we are compared to, and that we have received higher rankings every year since the first evaluation in 2013 is really pleasing,” says Bengt Brunberg, responsible for reporting on sustainability initiatives.
The EcoVadis method is based on internationally adopted principles for sustainability reporting, such as GRI (Global Reporting Initiative), United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000, and is audited by independent sustainability experts.
