Scanfil plc Press release 5 May 2022 10.30 a.m.
Scanfil is partnering with EcoVadis responsible procurement program and enhancing its collaboration with suppliers
In 2021 Scanfil was awarded a Silver rating from EcoVadis. Company’s goal is to emphasize sustainability further and, as a part of these actions, improve its current rating by entering into the EcoVadis responsible procurement program.
Sustainable procurement integrates specifications, requirements, and criteria that contribute to protecting of the environment and society. It also encompasses many concerns beyond, for example, child labor or the use of harmful chemicals that can damage people or the environment. A sustainable procurement program will give us a valuable and up-to-date solution to understand, evaluate and encourage our suppliers in sustainability-related matters.
“Partnering with EcoVadis will also provide Scanfil training by EcoVadis sustainability experts specialized in responsible sourcing,” says Mats Lindblad, Director Global Quality & Sustainability.
The EcoVadis method is based on internationally adopted principles for sustainability reporting, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000, and is audited by independent sustainability experts.
Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. Today there are more than 750 sustainable procurement programs, including over 90,000 companies across more than 160 countries. Many of them are also Scanfil’s customers and suppliers.
