Reason to celebrate in Polch: Griesson - de Beukelaer (GdB) has been awarded for its sustainable corporate governance for 2020 by the EcoVadis sustainability rating platform. The specialist for sweet and savoury biscuits scored particularly well in the environment theme: aspects such as the careful use of energy resources, the reduction of environmental impact through product use and the promotion of sustainable consumption, among others, lead to GdB's excellent result.
"The EcoVadis award validates our efforts to operate more sustainably as a compa-ny. We are particularly delighted that we are already among the best in our industry in our first assessment," says Andreas Land, managing partner at GdB. "Sustainabil-ity is firmly rooted in Griesson - de Beukelaer's DNA. Making a tangible difference is a matter very close to our hearts."
Since its foundation in 2007, the EcoVadis rating agency has become the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings for companies. The assessment is based on 21 criteria in the four themes environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sus-tainable procurement. The comprehensive CSR assessment is a scorecard that shows performance in the individual sustainability areas and allows for easy compari-son with other companies. The award is valid for one year.
