EcoVadis CSR assessment: Gold Recognition again for Symetal

EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains, granted again Symetal with a gold recognition level for its 2020 CSR performance, which ranks the Company among the top 4% suppliers assessed by EcoVadis.
 
The objective of the EcoVadis rating methodology is to assess the policies, actions and reporting of companies with regard to key sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) issues. The assessment considers a range of CSR issues, which are grouped into four themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.

Symetal has incorporated the principles of Sustainability in its business operations, thus recognising that its long-term growth can only be achieved through sustainable development. Concern for employee health and safety, respect and protection of the environment, comprehensive coverage of customer needs and harmonious coexistence with the local communities in which it operates are the material sustainability issues of Symetal. Thus, we are particularly proud of the “gold recognition level” achievement, as it supports our engagement in an ongoing effort to promote a sustainable future.
