The EcoVadis award covers four key areas for performance: environmental, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Silver medal status puts Powerforce among the top 25 percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis.
Becoming an EcoVadis rated company recognises Powerforce’s commitments and achievements against our Path To Purpose initiative as well as providing us with tools to use to focus our sustainability efforts and continue to improve our performance in this area.
Bronwyn Andrew, Powerforce MD, commented:
We are delighted to receive a Silver EcoVadis – it demonstrates that we don’t just say we have strong CSR agenda, we really action and do it! The process to achieve the award is thorough and takes a large amount of teamwork and collaboration across our business units, and I am proud of our teams working together to drive our Path to Purpose. This award allows us not only to benchmark ourselves against other leading organisations, but also provides us with opportunities and analysis to continue improve our ways of working.
