Sustainability rating by EcoVadis
EcoVadis is a leading service provider for monitoring, assessing and certifying sustainability in global supply chains. The EcoVadis methodology assesses companies' policies, measures and published reporting in the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. The assessment looks at 21 sustainability topics whose relevance is determined in the context of the respective company, such as industry, size and location. For example, the topic of the environment has a different weighting for a service provider, such as ALTHOM, than for a manufacturing company, where the topic of the environment is considered from production to the end of a product's life.
The overall rating by EcoVadis results from the weighted average of the topic scores. The activation and weighting depends on the industry, size and location. The rating allows companies to compare themselves with companies in the same industry, but also enables the classification of ALTHOM's overall sustainability performance in absolute terms.
ALTHOM GMBH (GROUP) is in the top 25% of companies assessed by EcoVadis in the architectural and engineering; technical, physical and chemical investigation industry. The overall sustainability performance is moderate and has been awarded a Silver Medal in recognition of the EcoVadis rating.
Sustainable for the future
Even though we are very proud of this result in the context of our 1st sustainability assessment, we will of course not rest on our laurels. Together, we will work through the recommendations for improvement and develop and implement a corrective action plan. Our goal is to systematically increase the scores of the individual topics in order to confirm our sustainability awareness with an even better overall rating in 2023.
