Trivium Packaging retains Platinum status
Trivium Packaging has announced that it has retained its Platinum status for its third consecutive year, the highest ranking in the 2024 EcoVadis sustainability ratings. Trivium was the first metal packaging company to obtain the coveted Platinum designation from EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings and is now the first to obtain this medal three times in a row, continuing to reflect the dedication Trivium Packaging has to sustainability.
EcoVadis’ platinum award reflects demonstrated improvements and contributions towards sustainable growth in the past year, with high scores in the environment, labor & human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement categories, including a rating of “outstanding” in the Environment category. This recognition is given for exemplary work spanning environmental impact and workforce health. EcoVadis awards the Platinum honor to only the top one percent of more than 100,000 participating companies assessed globally, spanning more than 175 countries and 200 industries.
Trivium’s CEO, Michael Mapes, said, “We are honored to receive the prestigious ‘Platinum’ sustainability rating from EcoVadis for a third consecutive year. It is a testament to Trivium Packaging’s unwavering commitment to our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) responsibility in packaging and all levels of our business. This recognition underscores our dedication to driving positive change in the packaging industry and reinforces our belief that sustainable practices are integral to our business success.”
“Now more than ever, the bar has been raised,” says Jenny Wassenaar, chief sustainability officer at Trivium. “This achievement, awarded by EcoVadis, is a testament to the work we’ve sought to achieve at Trivium and the long-term investment we’ve put into sustainable practices. Through our dedication to driving a positive and transparent sustainability impact, we aim to inspire others to join the continuous improvement processes that support our customers, our plant, and our people.”
The EcoVadis rating system scales from Bronze to Silver, Gold, and ultimately Platinum – which recognizes the top 1% of all companies assessed over the last 12 months who are leading the way in ESG standards. Each year, the bar for obtaining Platinum is higher, making it harder to achieve.
