ACCO Brands EMEA awarded for sustainability efforts

ACCO Brands EMEA has been awarded the Bronze medal certification by EcoVadis, a trusted provider of business sustainability ratings.

The Ecovadis assessment takes 4 areas of impact into consideration when viewing a company: environmental impact, labour & human rights, ethics, and sustainable sourcing. ACCO Brands first review by EcoVadis involved the completion of a thorough evaluation of all these themes to achieve the bronze medal.

The award places ACCO Brands EMEA in the top 50 per cent of all companies rated by the highly reputed EcoVadis system. The company scored particularly well on the sustainable procurement element of the assessment, ranking in the top 20 per cent of companies rated by EcoVadis in the manufacture of other articles of paper and paperboard category. EcoVadis recognised the companywide FSC and PEFC certifications, which monitor the sourcing of wood and paper and the clear reporting on wood fibers used for products and packaging.

Jacqueline Wellhaeusser, Sustainability Director of ACCO Brands EMEA said, “this favourable rating in our first review is a clear sign of the strength of our sustainability programme that we have had in place for more than 12 years and is also very much an encouragement to go even further in our efforts to work sustainably and protect the environment. We are proud that the results of this work have now been confirmed by experts in sustainability assessments and our stakeholders can be confident that they are working with a responsible partner.”
