Gold status for Endress+Hauser
December 2017, News
Endress+Hauser has received a Gold Recognition Level certificate in the EcoVadis audit, improving on the previous year’s result with 66 points. This illustrates the high importance the company places on its corporate social responsibility (CSR) and the structured, foresighted approach it takes.
“As a family business, the concept of sustainability is anchored firmly in our values,” emphasises Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “For this reason we have made the EcoVadis rating one of our strategic key figures. The gold certificate confirms that we are moving in the right direction. At the same time, it serves as an objective evaluation of our social responsibility for our customers.”
Twenty-one criteria were assessed in the audit, including environment, labour practices, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement. The company achieved an above average rating for all categories, receiving the gold certificate. Endress+Hauser is therefore among the leading two percent of all suppliers evaluated by EcoVadis.
