Silver for our sustainability

The independent agency Ecovadis has awarded silver for our commitment in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR). This means Emerell is one of the very top companies among all those that were evaluated. There were particularly good marks for the areas of the environment and working conditions.

As a custom manufacturer of high-quality adhesives and polymer specialties, every day we commit ourselves to producing the products of our customers even more efficiently and with even better conservation of resources. This principle is a fixed component of our strategy and is one of the strengths of Emerell. With our continuous improvement process we develop activities on an ongoing basis to help our customers achieve their goals of sustainable production.

As an evaluation by Ecovadis now shows, Emerell is already well on the right track here. The independent agency has examined our commitment in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The four areas environment, working conditions, fair operating practices and sustainable procurement were evaluated. At the first go we received the silver award. The first two areas were rated particularly highly. The average number of points of the assessed companies was 41.6, while we managed 56 points. This means we are in the top 11 percent of all assessed companies.

Ecovadis aims at improving environmental and social practices with consistent use of global supply chains. It operates a global platform enabling companies to monitor the sustainability performance of their suppliers across 150 areas and 95 countries. Thanks to this tool, companies can manage their risks more easily and gain a better overview of environmental innovations in their global supply chains.
