Ecovadis Gold Status
STI Group’s Grebenhain plant has scored brilliantly on all aspects of a customer sustainability audit in early 2016. The audit was carried out using online supplier platform Ecovadis, and the results have earned the plant coveted ’Gold supplier’ status.
’Several STI Group customers use sustainability databases such as Ecovadis or Sedex to download supplier information,’ explains Uwe Zadow, Plant Manager of the Grebenhain plant. ’We are committed to sustainability and transparency across all our business divisions so it’s in our interest to provide relevant information to customers in a structured format. We also find it helps us form better business relationships in the long term; the best relationships are always based on openness and trust. Best of all, being awarded Gold supplier status at our Grebenhain plant shows that our sustainability strategy really is at the heart of our daily work.’
Ecovadis works to promote environmental and social practices by monitoring supply chain CSR performance and helping companies to improve their sustainability activities.
