OT Group named in top 25% of EcoVadis sustainability ranking
Following a rigorous assessment, which saw OT Group evidence actions, policies and procedures relating to CSR practices across the business - measuring across the four key pillars of environment, labour and human rights, sustainable procurement, and ethics - the company was ranked in the top 25% of all organisations assessed to date.
Elaborating on the achievement, Andrew Jones, CEO of OT Group said: “As a business, our mission is to invest in people and practices which make a positive difference. As such – and because the climate crisis is now recognised as the most fundamental challenge of this decade – sustainability is at the heart of what we do and how we do it.
“We are honoured to have been recognised by EcoVadis for our sustainable efforts so far. As a vital part of our clients’ supply chains, they trust us to support their sustainability obligations and aspirations. Receiving the Silver award enables us to assure our customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders of our environmental commitment, while encouraging those within OT Group to continue integrating sustainability into the way we work.”
One of the most internationally-renowned sustainability tests, EcoVadis uses a scorecard to measure a series of indicators such as sustainable objectives, implemented activities, certifications, and controlling measures. The rating considers 21 criteria along the entire value chain — from purchasing and procurement, to human resources management.
