EcoVadis 2020: Umicore receives Platinum supplier rating for Corporate Social Responsibility
To be a preferred sustainable supplier, Umicore works directly with customers to meet their environmental requirements. Our success is measured in our ability to provide environmental and ethical sourcing benefits in view of scarce raw materials and to deliver products and services that create sustainable value for our customers and society.
EcoVadis is specialized in supply chain sustainability assessments and rates businesses in four areas of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): environment, employment conditions and human rights, business ethics and sustainable procurement.
This year, Umicore has achieved a Platinum EcoVadis rating, placing Umicore among the top 1% of our industry peers in EcoVadis’ global network of over 65,000 rated companies. The 2020 rating is an improvement on Umicore’s previous Gold rating (top 5% of peers), demonstrating Umicore’s continued commitment and efforts in ethical sourcing and sustainably managing raw materials. Umicore has been assessed by EcoVadis since 2013.
Umicore has a strong portfolio of products and services that offer specific sustainability advantages to customers and society, and strives for business excellence in all products, processes and services. We use our long-standing and growing experience to advocate for better sourcing practices.
