Siderise Special Products has been awarded a Silver Medal by EcoVadis, a globally-recognised leader in business sustainability assessment.
With a score of 68/100, Siderise achieved a spot in the top 9% of over 100,000 companies across 175+ countries that have voluntarily undergone this rigorous process.
EcoVadis evaluates sustainability in key areas of environmental impact, labor and human rights, ethics, and procurement practices. Siderise’s commitments in these areas have been formally assessed and recognised with this award.
This is done through a rigorous self-assessment process, which involves answering hundreds of questions and supplying evidence alongside answers to ensure complete integrity. These responses are then independently assessed and scored by EcoVadis’ sustainability experts, with a final overall score given from zero to 100 which is then used to create credible industry rankings.
Speaking on the achievement, Sera Turkoglu, ESG Manager for Siderise Group commented:
“Sustainability has become a key decision factor for customers and consumers in almost every sector. However, it is vital that businesses can provide credible proof of their actions. Going through the process of the EcoVadis assessment is not only something we have done to ensure good practice and genuine results that we can share with the industries we work in but has also been key in helping us to identify areas we can improve on in the future.”
Managing Director of Siderise Special Products, Hugh Langley added:
“This is a great achievement for our team. Acting with integrity and always looking to go beyond the minimum is at the core of our business strategy and operations. However, having this work formally recognised with the EcoVadis rating is a significant milestone in our ESG journey, and has been especially important for our client partners in rail, construction and marine who are actively seeking to ensure a more sustainable supply chain.”
