After receiving the accolade of two consecutive Golds from sustainability ratings agency EcoVadis, Azelis is proud to announce it has now been awarded with a Platinum rating, the highest distinction in the EcoVadis supplier sustainability rating scheme. With the EcoVadis Platinum grading, Azelis is in the top 1% of all companies assessed by EcoVadis.
This recognition makes Azelis the first global specialty chemicals and food ingredients distributor and innovation service provider to be awarded Platinum by EcoVadis, and with a score of 77, Azelis secures a place among the top 1% of the world’s 75,000 best rated companies.
EcoVadis tests and rates the performance of companies in the areas of environmental protection, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. The Platinum rating, which was introduced in 2020, is awarded to companies that receive an overall score between 73 and 100. Azelis has been assessed by EcoVadis since 2015.
Receiving the highest rating reinforces Azelis’ commitment to become the world-leading provider of sustainable solutions and services in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry. The highest score increase was on the topic of sustainable procurement, an improvement which Azelis attributes to its membership to ‘Together for Sustainability’ which plays a significant role in the company’s selection and evaluation of the supply chain.
