Award for sustainability
Blickle receives silver status from EcoVadis
The independent rating agency EcoVadis evaluates companies with regard to sustainability in the four areas of business practices, working conditions, environment and procurement. Blickle performed above average in all listed areas and especially well with respect to environment and procurement. Overall, Blickle ranks among the best 24% of the 55,000 companies evaluated, receiving a silver commendation. The goal of EcoVadis is to continuously improve the environmental and social practices of companies through a comprehensive evaluation of sustainability factors within the production and delivery chains. The detailed and comprehensive reporting motivates the companies to continuously improve their behaviour.
Corporate social responsibility has been firmly anchored within Blickle for many years now, and sustainability has always played an important role along the entire delivery chain, in resource-efficient production and with respect to social responsibility. “Documented sustainable business practices are of particular importance at Blickle. As a world market leader, we have a responsibility to conserve the available resources. We are therefore very proud to have achieved silver status in our first ranking in the EcoVadis study. Our goal is to continuously improve on these results,” says David Blickle, Executive Management.
