To supplement our ISO 14001 environmental audit and based on multiple requests from clients, Dr. Weigert has formed a “Sustainability Team”.
At the end of 2021, following discussion and analysis of different providers, our “Sustainability Team” has chosen the Agency EcoVadis to rate our sustainability practices.
EcoVadis is a large global provider of sustainability ratings/strategies. The global network includes over 90,000 companies.
Through combined efforts and working according to a tight schedule, a questionnaire with 80 main questions and countless subquestions was answered and 55 documents were uploaded to the EcoVadis platform.
The aim of the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) rating from EcoVadis is to assess the quality of a company's CSR management system. The assessment concentrates on 21 criteria, divided into four overall subject areas:
- Work practices and human rights
- Fair business practices
- Sustainable procurement
The Sustainability Team is pleased to be able to inform you that EcoVadis has completed the assessment and given Dr. Weigert a silver rating.
That is a great initial success! This places Dr. Weigert among the best 25% of companies assessed by EcoVadis!
This groundbreaking element for portraying our sustainability strategy will continue to be an important component of our company policy in future.
