EcoVadis: Better faster

A sustainable future for industry is possible. That’s why we are committed to helping customers worldwide transform their operations for the future. We do this not just through our technologies, but through leading by example. We’ve stepped up our own ambitious transformation with the help of the EcoVadis framework.

We’re using the EcoVadis framework to accelerate our ESG progress, globally.

A framework that pushes us

We use EcoVadis’s methodology and third-party assessments to drive our progress as a sustainable business with global and local responsibilities. The framework, used by thousands of companies worldwide, helps us focus our initiatives and assesses our sustainability along four dimensions: environment, labor & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Every year, we report to EcoVadis and are scored against set criteria. With each assessment come detailed, practical suggestions for high-impact improvements. It’s helped us drive progress much faster than we thought possible.

“Seeing how fast we’ve made progress, and how quickly we’ve learnt, has been really energizing. It’s incredibly forward-looking.”

Mette Rubak Kaarsbo, Chief Purchasing Officer, Norican Group
