Green and Gold

At Benvic, we have long been working on improving our ESG management. We strongly believe that companies have a crucial role to play in the necessary shift to a circular, humane and stakeholder-based economy. Over the years, we have implemented numerous improvements both at the Group level and in each of our locations, and we continue to strive and do better.

Benvic awarded GOLD for its sustainability performance

It is therefore with great satisfaction that we can announce that we earned a gold medal for 2022 in the independent assessment of our ESG practices over 2021 by EcoVadis, the global reference for business sustainability ratings. EcoVadis evaluates corporations through four lenses: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. Our score places us in the top 5% of companies appraised in our industry. With more than 100,000 companies assessed in more than 175 countries and 200 industries, this is not a small feat.

Our environmental and social practices were particularly commended.

Our extensive efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, for instance, have proved highly successful and explain in part our great result in the assessment. Amongst our strengths, EcoVadis also praised our bio-based innovative products, our ESG training programmes, our ISO certifications or our monitoring and improvement programmes (energy consumption, air pollutants, fugitive emissions, and so on).

Besides the recognition of our efforts to be leaders in a more sustainable and respectful industry, EcoVadis’ assessment also provides valuable guidance in the ways we can better our performances. In particular, it confirms our strategic goal to keep upgrading our supply chain, and to work hand in hand with our suppliers to ensure a better ESG management from the origin to the end of our products.

This recognition of our successes and progress leaves us energised for the work ahead.

We are mindful of our responsibility towards our stakeholders and employees. They have always played a key role in our growth and our accomplishments – they are the ones who ran the races that earned this gold medal. With them at our side, we are confident we will carry on our ethical business practices and further improve our positive ESG impact on the world.

More, forever, naturally.
