Sidel’s CSR rating places it among top 30% of companies

Sidel’s CSR rating places it among top 30% of companies

The commitment that Sidel is making in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been independently evaluated, placing the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging in the top 30% 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. Nicholas Bloch is Executive Vice President for Communications at Sidel and comments – “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.”

Supply chain focus

As a rating platform, EcoVadis focuses on the whole supply chain with a system which 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. In addition to EcoVadis, Sidel also works with SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange), the largest collaborative platform for sharing ethical supply chain data.

EcoVadis carries out an extensive and tough evaluation of a company’s CSR management system, looking at its policies, actions and results. Sidel achieved an above average performance in all the areas evaluated. EcoVadis monitors the sustainability performance of 20,000 companies across 150 sectors and in 95 countries and is used by many global companies, including Nestlé and Coca-Cola.
