BlueFish Promotional Merchandise is proud to announce that the company is celebrating after being awarded Platinum Status by EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted independent provider of business sustainability ratings.
The accolade means that BlueFish Promotional Merchandise now ranks in the top 1% of the 75,000 companies rated worldwide each year by EcoVadis.
EcoVadis has become a long-established partner for more than 200 global multinational companies including L’Oréal, Coca Cola Enterprises, Nestle, Pernod Ricard and Johnson and Johnson.
Len DeCandia, Global Chief Procurement Officer at Johnson & Johnson, explained: “By partnering with our suppliers, we can strengthen the social, environmental and economic performance of our supply chain. EcoVadis helps us to map our supplier conformance to Johnson & Johnson responsibility standards.”
Platinum is the highest medal of recognition that EcoVadis awards. To gain it, we were assessed on a comprehensive range of criteria across four key ‘pillars’ – environment, labour and human rights, sustainable procurement, and ethics.
EcoVadis’s methodology is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Russ Platt, Business Director, commented: “Both our clients and our team care deeply about the source of the products that we supply. We are committed to ensuring that they conform to internationally recognised standards and are produced ethically and safely, with awareness of both the environment and fair treatment of workers. We are working so that wherever possible our products will be sustainable.”
“When we first achieved an Ecovadis rating we were all so proud to be recognised as Gold standard, this time we have gone one better and achieved Platinum. This is testament to the project team who have worked so hard to make continuous improvements across the business and supply chain, and the fact that sustainability principles feature in everything we do.”
Paul Green, MD Galpeg added: “Encouraging sustainable operations across the entire value chain has been a key part of our corporate strategy for many years. I’m delighted that we have been awarded Platinum accreditation by EcoVadis, which recognises our work in reducing environmental impact across our entire business.”
