For this year, and again with successful partnerships, PREMIUM PARTNERS EUROPE NV has been awarded a platinum medal from EcoVadis in recognition of sustainability achievement!
Sustainability is the continuing commitment to act responsibly by integrating social and environmental concerns into business operations. Sustainability goes beyond regulatory compliance to focus on how companies manage their economic, social and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships with stakeholders.
The EcoVadis methodology framework assesses companies' policies and actions as well as their published reporting related to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. To receive Platinum medal under this framework, companies must have an overall score of 75-100. Premium Partners was able to attain a score of 84/100 in 2022 as compared to 77/100 in 2021. Premium Partners has an increased score on Environment, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement as compared to 2021 score. As our greatest impact comes from the procurement part, we have invested more efforts into managing this risk, and we were able to increase score on Sustainable Procurement to the highest of 90!
This gives us acknowledgement of the many actions Premium Partners has in place to establish sustainability within its business, and the zeal to take further steps for more improvements in years to come. We will surely aim to include more quantitative objectives in our sustainability policies and take impactful actions that will be reflected under the four different themes along with their criteria.
