hubergroup Deutschland awarded silver medal by EcoVadis
hubergroup Deutschland has been awarded a silver medal by EcoVadis, the largest independent provider of sustainability ratings.
hubergroup is among the top 20% of the more than 100,000 companies rated by EcoVadis so far.
As part of the assessment, EcoVadis examines the sustainability management of companies in the areas of environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
Since 2007, the global organisation EcoVadis has been evaluating the efforts of companies to operate sustainably and to comply with high social standards. hubergroup Deutschland is among the top 20 percent of all companies evaluated in the rating.
As early as the 1990s, hubergroup was the first production site in Germany to introduce the ISO 9001 quality management system. This was followed by the environmental, occupational health and safety, energy, and HACCP management systems. In addition, hubergroup is a member of the Responsible Care initiative and, by signing the Responsible Care Global Charter, has committed itself to voluntarily doing more than is required by laws and regulations.
“Our result in the EcoVadis rating shows that we take the issue of sustainability seriously. Our guiding principle is: we take a holistic view of sustainability and continuously drive the circular economy forward. We therefore take many large and small steps to make our actions and our products more ecological,” explained Carsten Zölzer, managing director at hubergroup Deutschland.
“We are pleased that we are among the top 25% of the participating companies in all areas assessed by EcoVadis. But we also see the result as a guide for further improvement – because we want to continue to drive sustainable business.”
