Market expansion services provider (and speciality chemicals and ingredients distributor) DKSH AG (Zurich, Switzerland) has been given a “Silver” rating from Paris-based agency EcoVadis, based on an overall score of 50 points. With that the company ranks among the top 14% of companies in the industry, DKSH said in a statement.
The EcoVadis methodology is based on the rating of companies according to 21 sustainability criteria in four main areas: environment, labor and human rights, ethics as well as sustainable procurement. “2019 is the third year in which DKSH is evaluated by EcoVadis. A key factor for having achieved the silver rating is DKSH’s [sustainability] report according to the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines (GRI), which the company published for the first time last year.”
