Michelman achieves an EcoVadis Gold rating for sustainability. Michelman ranks in the top 96th percentile of over 100,000 companies that have been evaluated across more than 200 industries and 175 countries.
EcoVadis was founded in 2007 and has, according to its website, grown to become “the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings.” The EcoVadis sustainability assessment is an evaluation of how well a company has integrated the principles of sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) across the four themes: environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
“Since our inception in 1949, Michelman innovations have been rooted in the development of water-based solutions and environmentally conscious technologies. Earning the prestigious EvoVadis Gold rating is a testament to our core values and our associates’ dedication to helping customers achieve their own sustainability initiatives,” said Chuck Hardy, Michelman’s director, Global Sustainability and R&D Systems. “As part of the evaluation process, EcoVadis goes well beyond just environmental responsibility. For example, they grade applicants on EH&S procedures that protect a company’s associates. They also evaluate HR and procurement systems that ensure both the applicant and its partners are paying fair wages. The process is a complete and thorough analysis of social responsibility, and we’re proud to have ranked so highly.”
