We have again achieved the silver medal in this year’s EcoVadis sustainability rating. This puts us in the top 25 of the more than 100,000 companies evaluated worldwide. We were once again able to improve compared to the previous year. The external evaluation underpins the credibility of our commitment to sustainability and confirms us as a reliable and responsible partner in the global automotive aftermarket.
EcoVadis is the world’s largest provider of sustainability ratings for companies. Many of our partners and customers demand transparency for their supply chains with regard to sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The high rating from the external, internationally recognised rating specialist proves the success of the numerous measures that we have implemented in recent months. These include the introduction of a Global Code of Conduct that sets uniform standards for the behaviour of our employees and business partners worldwide. In addition, we have implemented a whistleblowing system to report and uncover potential violations of the Code of Conduct.
Another important tool for us to improve sustainability is the assessment of sustainability risks from our suppliers. Furthermore, we have implemented comprehensive measures to save CO2 and have set ourselves the goal of being CO2-neutral by 2030. E-learning courses and workshops for our teams have been introduced to raise awareness of sustainability and CSR.
“We are proud to have once again achieved the silver medal in this year’s EcoVadis rating, placing us among the top 25 companies worldwide. We are particularly pleased that we were once again able to improve compared to the previous year. This shows that our measures to promote sustainability and CSR have been successful. However, we also use the results to identify further fields of action as part of our sustainability strategy. Be assured that we will continue to work hard to fully live up to our responsibility.”
