We did it again! For the second year in a row, EcoVadis has awarded us the outstanding Platinum status, their highest sustainability rating in the areas of environment, labor & human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. Thus, we are ranked in the top 1% among more than 100,000 companies worldwide due to our excellent ESG management.
Following the principles of “reduce, reuse, recycle”, delfort develops lightweight specialty papers that save raw materials, while being recyclable up to 12 times. Since its founding in 2006, delfort has been consistently pursuing its sustainability strategy, guided by ambitious targets for the environment, social aspects, and corporate governance. To be recognized by EcoVadis as an industry leader is a testament to our dedication to delivering on our targets and helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals.
delfort’s activities are evaluated on a yearly basis by EcoVadis. We maintained our already very high ranking in the areas of environment and labor & human rights. At the same time, we improved our performance in ethics and sustainable procurement. This is attributed to our focus on strengthening our corporate governance policies and our strict supplier performance evaluation to enforce that our raw materials are sustainably sourced.
This award is an incentive for us to pursue our chosen path of sustainability even more vigorously. At the same time this independent rating enables us to recognize potential development areas. We will continue to focus on continuous improvements in all four areas covered by EcoVadis.
