Rating agency EcoVadis gives the Infraserv Höchst Group top marks again
The Infraserv Höchst Group won its third gold certificate in a row from EcoVadis, a rating agency. Every year, the rating portal assesses around 45,000 suppliers from 150 countries and 190 industries and scores their sustainability along the dimensions of ethics, environment, sustainable procurement, and labor and human rights. At 65 out of 100 points, Infraserv Höchst figures among the top five percent of all rated companies. It even received 80 out of 100 points for environmental management, putting it the highest-ranked group.
“We are thrilled to have won this accolade again. It shows that Infraserv takes sustainability very seriously,” said Joachim Kreysing, Managing Director of Infraserv Höchst. “It also sends out an important signal to our customers that we are not only reliable, but also integrate sustainability into everything we think and do – and that is, in our eyes, a hallmark of a successful service provider.” The certification confirms that Infraserv Höchst has adopted a sound sustainability strategy, as documented in its environmental, health and safety policies. The company is also a certified member of the compliance initiative of the Association for Supply Chain Management, Procurement and Logistics (BME).
EcoVadis scores are based on 21 indicators that are grouped into four sub-categories: ethics, environment, sustainable procurement, and labor and human rights. These criteria are built on international CSR standards such as the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, the International Labor Organization conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative, ISO 26000 and the UN Guiding Principles of Business and Human Rights.
