Schréder has been awarded the Gold level, with a score of 68 out of 100 points, in the EcoVadis 2022 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 85 000 organisations in over 160 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.
After receiving Bronze in 2020 and Silver in 2021, the company showed its determination and commitment to systematically improving its sustainability performance. This achievement is thanks to excellent progress in all areas with a special focus on our sustainable procurement policies in 2022.
"We are pleased to have been awarded a Gold rating. It is a recognition of all the hard work that has been done and confirms our commitment to protecting the planet and providing our customers and partners with transparent and trustworthy sustainability credentials. It would not have been possible without the dedication of our colleagues and our community of trusted suppliers to improve sustainability in our value chain," says Xavier Uhlen, Schréder’s director for audit, risk and sustainability.
Sustainability is firmly anchored in the company’s corporate strategy. It continuously looks for new opportunities to further reduce its CO2 emissions, manufacture more sustainably and provide its customers with even more efficient, sustainable and responsible solutions to protect the planet we all share. This award confirms to Schréder’s customers and partners that they have a responsible and trustworthy supplier at their side to serve the local communities in which they operate.
