Platinum EcoVadis rating for Eneco
At the end of August, Eneco received the Platinum rating from EcoVadis. We belong to the the top 1% of the best scoring companies in our industry in terms of sustainability performance.
In the assessment, EcoVadis looks at how a company scores on the environmental impact, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable purchasing policy. Eneco has devoted a great deal of attention to these points and this is reflected in the assessment. Where we received a silver rating in 2018, we received a platinum rating in 2020.
In the past year Eneco focused on sustainable business operations, with attention for a sustainable purchasing policy. We score a lot higher on these points than the average in the energy sector. We also invested in improving working conditions, creating a safe working environment and establishing our ethical standards and values. This is also reflected in the higher scores for these components. The Platinum total rating confirms our performance in terms of our social and sustainable business operations.
