From Bronze to Silver: BESTMALZ among the best on EcoVadis Scorecard
From Bronze to Silver: In the current sustainability rating by EcoVadis, a global leader in this field, Palatia Malz GmbH with its internationally respected top brand BESTMALZ has once again improved its rating. “We are now in the top 25 percent of the highest-rated companies which took part in the ranking,” states Dirk Schneider, Head Head of Quality Management.
The audit by the sustainability expert is carried out annually and is mandatory for some of Palatia Malz GmbH’s major customers, including the Dr. Oetker Group with the Radeberger Brewery as well as Groupe Soufflet with AIT Ingredients.
Four topics are examined and assessed: Environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. Internal company improvements in the areas of environment and sustainable procurement were rewarded with an ascent in the EcoVadis ranking. And that has international appeal. After all, everyone participating in EcoVadis is able to view the result. In addition, the audited companies can share their result with all their business partners.
“We are firmly convinced that important levers for the future lie in sustainability. By regularly participating in this sustainability ranking, we promote adherence to our compliance guidelines, particularly if it is this successful,” explains Dirk Schneider.
