Amcor, a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, has been awarded the gold EcoVadis medal for its industry-leading sustainability practices. This award highlights Amcor’s extensive sustainability work, and places Amcor among the top 5% of all companies assessed by EcoVadis and in the top 1% of companies in its sector regarding sustainable procurement.
David Clark, vice president of sustainability at Amcor, said, “EcoVadis provides an important and unbiased assessment to organizations looking to maintain more sustainable supply chains. Amcor’s gold award recognizes the high aspirations and quality of our corporate sustainability program and our leadership role in the industry. We know customers look for partners who share their values and hold the highest standards, which the EcoVadis gold medal confirms.”
The objective of the EcoVadis assessment is to measure a company’s sustainability performance across the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and procurement. The assessment focuses on 21 issues based on international standards. In addition to completing the assessment annually and sharing results with customers, Amcor also requests its strategic and critical suppliers to complete EcoVadis assessments, to maintain high standards and manage risk within its supply chain. Amcor’s gold medal underlines the commitment it has made to more sustainable packaging and is supported by its investment in research and development every year, enabling the creation of innovative packaging designs with reduced environmental impact.
