Global plastic packaging solutions provider Retal has been awarded a Silver level position from EcoVadis, the respected CSR performance and monitoring organisation.
Retal achieved a 60% score, positioning the company in the 25% of companies assessed by EcoVadis, and in the top 18% of its industry.
This result marks a two-point increase from Retal’s last assessment in 2021, putting the company on track to achieve its goal of reaching 65% by 2023. This, said sustainability director Emmanuel Duffaut, will be realised through the continuous implementation of actions in ‘notable areas’, including Ethics, Labour Practices, and the Environment.
“All these subcategories, as well as Procurement, are already above 50%,” he noted.
He added that Retal’s score for the Sustainable Procurement category has already reached 70%, an increase of 10 points, a tangible effect of the implementation of its Sustainable Procurement Program in 2019.
“Our CSR actions and mitigations are continuously improving, following the ISO 26000 standard, and ensuring the sustainable development of our company,” he concluded.
