Micro Powders Achieves EcoVadis Silver Supplier CSR Evaluation Rating
TARRYTOWN, NY – Micro Powders Inc. has been awarded a Silver recognition level rating, placing it among the top 30% of performers evaluated, from EcoVadis, the first collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains. The suppliers' corporate social responsibility (CSR) evaluation was initially conducted in collaboration with a leading global paints and coatings company, and has since expanded to multinational companies in the personal care and industrial coatings market.
“EcoVadis has assessed more than 30,000 companies around the globe. We are proud to be ranked among the top CSR performers from this vast pool,” said Richard Czarnecki, Technical Director, Micro Powders Inc.
EcoVadis' methodology and criteria are in line with international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, UN Global Compact, and ISO 26000. The CSR scorecards help companies monitor suppliers' environmental, ethical, and social practices and provide a benchmark compared to others in terms of company size, industry sector and localization.
Gary Strauss, President, Micro Powders Inc., added, “We are committed to continuously improving our business processes and performance, and appreciate that the CSR scorecard not only indicates our quality, high-impact CSR practices, but also helps us identify, prioritize and implement improvements."
