The Group is among the top 1% of companies in the paper and paperboard industry for corporate social sustainability

Sofidel, one of the leading global groups in the production of paper for hygienic and domestic use, has achieved the Platinum award from EcoVadis for its approach to sustainability, which puts Sofidel in the top 1% of rated companies worldwide in the paper and paperboard industry.

The risk and sustainability performance assessment conducted by EcoVadis is based on internationally recognised standards – including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the United Nations Global Compact – and supervised by an international scientific committee. The environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable supply are the four macro-areas that are analysed.

Sofidel obtained above-average assessments, with a particularly excellent result in the environmental field. This result enabled the Platinum award to be obtained, the top level of the EcoVadis rating.

“For many years, the strategic integration of sustainability has been part of Sofidel’s way of doing business, as well as a willingness to share the results obtained and involve our partners in achieving our sustainability goals. Obtaining the Platinum award from EcoVadis is a source of pride for us and confirms the correctness of a commitment that we intend to develop further,” said Riccardo Balducci, Sofidel’s Energy and Environment Director.

EcoVadis is among the world’s most trusted providers of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains.
