Diversey’s sustainability performance was rated by EcoVadis and found to be in the top 20% of companies they analyze according to environmental, social, and governance issues. EcoVadis is a leading sustainability ratings service that has assessed over 75,000 organizations around the world. Diversey’s rating is based on public information as well as our response to an extensive 75-page questionnaire that explores our approach to social responsibility, human rights, business ethics, and environmental stewardship.
Customers in some cases request Diversey’s participation in the EcoVadis platform to collect in-depth information on their suppliers to drive sustainability and mitigate risk in their supply chain. Increasingly, Diversey’s customers are seeing their purchasing power as a ‘force for good’ to push suppliers to improve environmental and social performance.
Diversey improved our EcoVadis score from 46 to 57 this year, a testament to the work being done around the company to improve our environmental footprint, adhere to the Diversey Code of Conduct, and create sustainability value for our customers. Sustainability is a journey and we hope next year Diversey can achieve the ‘Gold Level’ in Ecovadis.
