Sidel has joined forces with EcoVadis, a renowned sustainability assessment company, to drive its sustainable supply chain initiatives.
Under this collaboration, EcoVadis will evaluate and rate the environmental, social, and ethical performance of Sidel’s suppliers, aligning with the company’s new supply chain strategy.
With over 17 years of experience, EcoVadis has assessed more than 125,000 companies globally, focusing on key areas such as environmental impact, labour standards, ethical practices, and sustainable procurement.
This partnership marks a significant step for Sidel in enhancing its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices.
Empowering suppliers for sustainable practices
Francesca Bellucci, ESG head at Sidel, emphasised, in a statement, the importance of strong supplier relationships in achieving ESG objectives.
“Our sustainable supply chain strategy is central to our ESG practices: more than 10% of our greenhouse gas emissions occur upstream, and we take full accountability for human rights enforcement across the full value chain. Strong relationships with suppliers are pivotal to reach our ambitious ESG objectives.”
