The commitment that Sidel is making to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been independently evaluated, placing the leading provider of production equipment and services for liquids in PET in the top 30 per cent of the 20,000 companies assessed in 2015.
Sidel received a Silver CSR rating from EcoVadis, a sustainability rating platform used to understand, track and improve environmental, ethical and social performance worldwide. Respect for the environment and a strong focus on CSR and Corporate Governance is fundamental to Sidel’s operations.
“Sidel’s purpose is to help brands protect the product inside and the planet outside. We continue to implement CSR in everything we do to help us achieve this and are pleased to see our EcoVadis rating this year is an improvement on last year,” says Nicholas Bloch, Executive Vice President for Communications at Sidel.
As a rating platform, EcoVadis focuses on the whole supply chain with a system that brings together buyers and suppliers to accelerate transparency and foster more sustainable business. For Sidel, this makes it a particularly relevant method of benchmarking CSR performance given the importance that Sidel attributes to the role of PET packaging throughout the whole supply chain – from raw material to recycling – and how it can help turn those supply chains into value chains.
EcoVadis monitors the sustainability performance of 20,000 companies across 150 sectors and 95 countries and is used by many global companies, including Nestlé and Coca-Cola. Top CSR rating for Sidel
