At Sperre Air Power we continuously work with sustainability initiatives throughout our organization and value chain. We measure and improve every day, and plan on continuing to do so to protect both people and planet. As part of this work, and as a result of a request from one of our customers, Ponant, we were rated by EcoVadis.
EcoVadis is the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings. Their methodology is built on international standards, such as the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000. Today EcoVadis has rated more than 100,000 companies across more than 200 industries.
The EcoVadis assessment includes 21 sustainability criteria across four core themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.
