We are proud to announce that the Carmeuse Group has received a Platinum recognition by EcoVadis in its manufacturing activities in Europe. These results position Carmeuse Europe activities in the top 1% of suppliers in the category of cement, lime and plaster in 2020.
A reference in sustainability
Carmeuse is engaged to continuously improve its sustainable practices in order to become a reference in the sector. All Carmeuse entities evaluated by EcoVadis in 2020 have improved their results compared to 2019. This is mainly thanks to OHSAS 18001 certification at Carmeuse Europe sites, the publication of updated policies (for example a revised Carmeuse Code of Ethics) and better communication on indicators and reporting.
What are the benefits of EcoVadis ratings?
EcoVadis ratings and scorecards enables Carmeuse to provide a global and common response to customers on their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) assessment of suppliers and to support them on their sustainability commitments. Thereby it represents an unique and solid competitive advantage by demonstrating Carmeuse’s determination to be an actor of a better world to all stakeholders.
It also benefits the company by identifying improvement opportunities of its CSR practices, thus providing a platform for a global CSR move in business value chains, supporting trust between partners.
