AOC awarded with Gold Rating by EcoVadis18 March 2021
AOC is setting high standards in Environmental, Social, and Ethical performance, while actively promoting sustainable products and solutions. As a recognition for its performance and the company’s demonstrated commitment to Sustainability, AOC has received a Gold Rating from EcoVadis for its European business.
AOC has been at the forefront of promoting sustainability in the supply chain, offering products and solutions that provide great durability, require minimal maintenance, and extend lifetime of existing networks.
Last month AOC introduced its Next™ Eco-label to better identify products that help to reduce emission of VOCs (including styrene-free and low-styrene resins), use feedstock from bio-sources or recycled waste streams, or minimize environmental footprint. Meanwhile, AOC is also reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of its manufacturing plants with great results (more information through this link).
Objective ESG Assessment
Environmental, social, and ethical performance – or Sustainability – is an essential factor for smart business today. Like many other companies, AOC is actively working on improving its transparency and sustainability practices. For that reason AOC engaged EcoVadis to assess the quality of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) management system, as well as processes and practices.
After having received a Silver Rating in 2020, now AOC has been awarded a Gold Rating by EcoVadis as a recognition for its continued commitment to Sustainability and for further improving its performance.
AOC’s rating was in the top 5 % percentile of chemical companies, which clearly indicates the company is a front runner in the industry.
“We are very proud of receiving such a favorable rating by a respected organization as EcoVadis”, comments Stefan Osterwind, Managing Director EMEA, AOC. “We will clearly not stop here but continue to develop our business in a more sustainable way, growing composites markets and building sustainable value propositions together with our customers.”
