SI Group has received a gold rating for corporate social responsibility from EcoVadis. This year, SI Group was ranked among the top 5 percent of more than 50,000 worldwide companies assessed by EcoVadis.
EcoVadis’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) scorecards rate suppliers’ environmental, ethical, and social practices across 190 commodities and 150 countries. The EcoVadis methodology covers 21 individual criteria across four themes, including: environment; labor & human rights; ethics; and sustainable procurement.
“Our EcoVadis rating reflects our commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. We recognize we have an opportunity to make widespread impact through innovative chemistries and our actions as a company,” said David Bradley, president and CEO at SI Group. “We look forward to working with our leading customers to focus not only on performance but also the sustainability of our products.”
Earlier this year, SI Group expanded the role of Mike Farnell, SVP, general counsel, to include chief sustainability officer to build upon SI Group’s sustainability foundation and continue to progress as a sustainability leader in the chemical industry.
