GB Lubricants has announced that, once again, it has achieved a Gold Rating in corporate social responsibility & sustainability from EcoVadis, a leading global provider of business sustainability ratings. This places the UK-based industrial lubricant manufacturer in the top 5% of all companies evaluated worldwide. EcoVadis experts evaluate company performance on 21 factors grouped into four categories: environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Each company is assessed in these areas based on size, location and industry. The rating methodology is based on international sustainability standards and initiatives, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000 standard (social responsibility).
GB Lubricants Managing Director, Paul Booth commented “I am delighted that we have not only retained our Gold Award but the auditors noted our ongoing improvement in key areas. Sustainability and the CSR continues to form a fundamental part of GB Lubricants long term strategic plan and it’s important to have this independently audited and acknowledged”.
