ACCO Brands EMEA now ranks in the top 24% of companies in its industries according to sustainability ratings organisation EcoVadis.

Following its previous assessment, when it was placed in the top 50%, the vendor has been awarded the EcoVadis bronze medal for 2024. Four areas of the business were evaluated: environmental impact, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable sourcing. ACCO said its review by EcoVadis involved the completion of a thorough evaluation of all these themes in order to achieve the bronze rating.

The award places ACCO Brands EMEA in the top 24% of companies rated by EcoVadis in the ‘manufacture of other articles of paper and paperboard’ category. The company scored particularly well on environmental topics, where it was placed in the top 9%, and on sustainable procurement, ranking in the top 8%.

Jacqueline Wellhaeusser, Sustainability Director at ACCO Brands EMEA, commented: “This considerable improvement in our second review shows our focus and commitment to our sustainability programme that we have had in place for more than 14 years. [It also demonstrates] that our strategy and plan are the right ones to help us continually improve working sustainably and protecting the environment.”
