Whistl has secured a silver ranking from the international Ecovadis platform which evaluates companies on their environmental performance and corporate social responsibility.
In the third year of assessment, the company has improved its score from 58 per cent to 61 per cent and is now in the top 20 per cent of all companies rated by EcoVadis.
Over the year the Whistl showed significant improvement in the sustainable procurement and ethics areas of the platform, both scoring 10 per cent higher than the previous submission. The company has launched new initiatives in these areas such as its Supplier Charter and gaining the CHAS accreditation which helped improve the scores.
Nick Wells, Executive Chairman Whistl, said: “Securing Silver from EcoVadis reflects the hard work across the whole company as part of our ongoing strategy to operate as a sustainable business. The increase in our score underpins our commitment to ongoing improvement through our ESG initiatives.”
