Covestro, a manufacturer of high-tech polymer materials, has received gold certification for its achievements in sustainability again from EcoVadis, a collaborative platform providing supplier sustainability rating for global supply chains, as per a company press release.

The company has improved its score by eight points, for a total of 73, putting it far above the average of 42 points. The rating procedure is very demanding. Covestro sent the agency over 300 data records based on a detailed questionnaire. The agency further analysed over 300 other publications from independent sources for its rating.

“This achievement encourages us to be even more committed to our comprehensive sustainability strategy. With our products, processes and solutions, we want to help preserve the environment, advance society and create value, in accordance with our vision 'to make the world a brighter place',” said Patrick Thomas, CEO, Covestro.

“This major jump in our rating can be explained above all by our sustainable product and process innovations, new programs and the improved documentation of existing sustainability activities. We have set ourselves ambitious sustainability goals and therefore see good possibilities for improving even more,” explained Richard Northcote, who is responsible for sustainability at Covestro.

Covestro has the same survey conducted to rate the sustainability performance of its suppliers. This survey is part of the Together for Sustainability initiative, a coalition of leading chemical companies aimed at establishing a global standard for sustainable supply chains in the chemical industry.
