Recycled paper manufacturer Saica Group has received a silver medal from EcoVadis, a company that provides green ratings to businesses, for its improved sustainability efforts.

The EcoVadis assessment platform rates the sustainability of global supply chains in more than 75,000 companies all over the world.

The platform measures companies’ environmental, social and governance credentials through 21 sustainability criteria with a particular focus on four performance areas, namely environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.

Saica achieved a total of 68 points this year, driven by its improvements in labour and human rights and sustainable procurement, where it gained ten points respectively.

The company also improved by two levels on the comprehensive carbon-management measures it reportedly implemented across its operations.

Saica, in a statement, said: “Participating in the EcoVadis ratings is just one of the many ways Saica Group chooses to measure and demonstrate its sustainability progress.
