(Posted on 10/10/17)
Smurfit Kappa has been awarded the gold Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating by EcoVadis.
The European evaluator of global supply chains, has awarded the title for the fourth successive year.
The company ranked among the top 1% of the 30,000 companies that were assessed on a range of criteria across environment, labour practices and human rights, sustainable procurement and fair business practices.
Smurfit Kappa hit a sustainability target earlier in the year when it reached full chain of custody certification for its entire raw material supply chain, helping its customers to meet their own sustainability and environmental targets.
Saverio Mayer, Smurfit Kappa European chief executive, said: “At Smurfit Kappa, we firmly believe that we must support our customers in achieving their sustainability goals and protecting their reputation. The independent external recognition of the EcoVadis gold rating demonstrates this commitment.
“Supplier choice is often governed by who the most responsible business partner is. Our customers can rest assured that with Smurfit Kappa, they benefit from a completely transparent and sustainable supply chain.”
