RUSAL awarded silver medal by EcoVadis
RUSAL announced that it has secured the silver sustainability recognition level from EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted business sustainability rating provider.
The Russian aluminium company has worked to enhance its environmental, social and management indicators, introducing sustainable development principles into the activities of all structural divisions and enterprises.
The company was awarded the EcoVadis Bronze medal in 2020, but was given a silver medal this year.
It confirms RUSAL’s significant progress in improving sustainable development practices compared to the 2020 assessment.
The silver medal places RUSAL in the top 25% of the global companies evaluated, and recognises the Company’s long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
Irina Bakhtina, Director for Sustainable Development of RUSAL, noted: “We know how attentive our consumers and partners are to the EcoVadis ratings. Their appraisal and methodology are known, first of all, for their uncompromising nature and constant tightening of requirements.
“It is all the more gratifying that the assessment of RUSAL’s progress towards the world’s best practices in the field of sustainable development has resulted in such a high ranking. However, we will not rest on our laurels with regards to what has already been achieved: the next goal of our aluminium giant is to be awarded the gold level.”
