SAINT-PRIEST, France – For the second time in a row, Vencorex has been awarded a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Platinum medal from EcoVadis. The platinum rating highlights a company’s commitment to CSR development. It ranks Vencorex among the top 1% of the 75,000 companies rated by EcoVadis this year.

The EcoVadis rating is recognition of the efforts that Vencorex teams are continuously making in a number of areas. In terms of safety, all Vencorex plants are OHSAS certified and managed by process hazard analysis methodology, and continuous safety training is done for all employees and subcontractors.

The company has implemented a rigorous management of environment and energy with ISO 14001 and ISO 50 001 certifications. It has also worked to develop environmentally friendly solutions for customers, including low-viscosity and solvent-free technology for polyureas and polyurethane coatings such as the new Tolonate™ X F 450 and Easaqua™ products for waterborne polyurethane formulations.

In terms of sustainable procurement, the company has adopted a Suppliers Code of Conduct, where its commitment to address economic, societal and environmental sustainability when conducting business is communicated to suppliers and subcontractors, and suppliers and subcontractors are encouraged to endorse the same principles.

“We are very proud to receive this Platinum medal for the second time. Through the continued implementation of its Core Values (Creativity, Open-mind, Responsibility and Excellence), Vencorex strengthens its commitment to sustainable development,” said Xavier Fournier, CEO of Vencorex.
