ACCO Brands EMEA has been awarded Bronze medal certification by sustainability business ratings provider EcoVadis.
The Ecovadis assessment takes four areas of impact into consideration when viewing a company: environmental impact, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable sourcing.
The Bronze award places ACCO in the top 50% of all companies rated. The vendor scored particularly well on the sustainable procurement element of the assessment, ranking in the top 20% of companies in the ‘manufacture of other articles of paper and paperboard’ category.
ACCO Brands EMEA Sustainability Director Jacqueline Wellhaeusser commented: “This favourable rating in our first review is a clear sign of the strength of our sustainability programme that we have had in place for more than 12 years and is also very much an encouragement to go even further in our efforts to work sustainably and protect the environment.”
