SIG ranked among top 1% for Corporate Responsibility

2nd March 2020

SIG has maintained its elite position among the top 1% of participating companies with a platinum rating in the latest EcoVadis assessment on corporate social responsibility (CSR).

„The platinum rating from EcoVadis is testament to SIG’s ongoing commitment to go Way Beyond Good for society and the environment,” said Michael Hecker, Director Corporate Responsibility at SIG. “Being ranked among the top 1% of companies for sustainability once again makes us very proud of what we have achieved and will inspire us to go even further.”

The EcoVadis assessment process is designed to improve transparency and promote continuous improvement on sustainability in the supply chain, enabling customers to monitor performance and identify high performing partners. The assessment methodology is based on international sustainability standards and supervised by a scientific committee of CSR and supply chain experts.

To date, EcoVadis has assessed over 50,000 trading partners worldwide. SIG first achieved its top percentile position in 2017. Since then, the company has improved its overall score as it continues to drive progress towards its ambition to go Way Beyond Good by putting more into society and the environment than it takes out.

Scores are based on a detailed independent assessment of policies, processes and performance related to the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement criteria that are most relevant to the company’s size, location and industry.

Recognised external assessments like EcoVadis provide customers and other stakeholders with independent assurance that SIG is a responsible business. All SIG’s production plants also complete regular SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) Members Ethical Trade Audits to assess working conditions, health and environmental protection, and ethical business practices.
