After winning the Silver EcoVadis Award in 2015, Fabian Haenggi, Procurement and CSR Manager of Gemaco Global, was determined to raise the stakes and take home the Gold Award in 2016.
"We are very proud to be awarded with the Gold Award in our latest EcoVadis reassessment," shares Gemaco Group CEO, Alex de Geus. “Sustainable business is not a fad exercise for our company; it is an integral part of all daily operations. Furthermore, the Gold Award is recognition for our continuing efforts in and dedication to CSR over the last 12 months.”
In 2012, Gemaco joined EcoVadis, a collaborative platform that helps businesses evaluate their environmental, social and ethical impact based on an extensive scorecard rating system.
Haenggi explains that this recent success was only possible with the dedicated help of all Gemaco offices in Europe, Asia and the Americas. “Aligning CSR activities on a global sclae is only possible with local dedication. We put a lot of effort into our supplier management programme, as well as focus on concrete metrics to reduce our environmental impact in the production and distribution of our products worldwide. With the Gold Award, we may have reached the highest EcoVadis level, but Gemaco Global will continue to optimise its CSR practices on a daily basis."
