Jun '17
Teijin Aramid, a subsidiary of the Teijin Group, has received certificate from EcoVadis that qualifies the company as a gold partner for its sustainability efforts in the automotive market. Teijin Aramid is the preferred supplier of aramid for most large tire producers, who use the para-aramid Twaron to produce their high performance tires.

EcoVadis is an independent sustainability rating platform for companies to record, evaluate and communicate its standards, measures and activities in support of its corporate social responsibility. EcoVadis has launched a platform in 2007 which provides insight into assessments of suppliers in terms of their sustainability efforts and results. Teijin Aramid became a member of EcoVadis in 2015.

"We are very proud to receive this gold partner certificate from EcoVadis. It shows that we operate fair and sustainable in all aspects. Having an external and well respected player stating this is an appreciation for all our efforts. And we will certainly continue with that," said Gert Frederiks, CEO, Teijin Aramid.

The annual reporting is done in four sections: environment, working conditions, fair business processes, and sustainable procurement. The results show that Teijin Aramid belongs to the top 2 per cent of all suppliers in the synthetic fibre production category and to the top 1 per cent of suppliers in all categories. (RR)
