EcoVadis is among the most accredited corporate sustainability rating platforms internationally and has so far rated 100 thousand companies. The medal recognizes companies that have completed the EcoVadis rating process and have demonstrated a strong management system that meets sustainability criteria as outlined in the EcoVadis methodology.
The methodology is based on International sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000, covering more than 200 ESG areas of interest for approximately 175 countries. The evaluation model, supervised by an international scientific committee, is based on globally recognised standards and consists in measuring the performance of twenty-one indicators, in relation to 4 macro-areas, evaluated with a final score from 0 to 100: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.
"The upgrade from gold to platinum medal in the EcoVadis ranking attests the company's continued progress in achieving the goals of the ESG Strategic Plan," commented Poste Italiane CEO Matteo Del Fante. "The EcoVadis rating represents a new milestone in Poste Italiane's journey to the top of the global rating for corporate social responsibility along the supply chain."
"We are committed on a daily basis to developing innovative and sustainable solutions for our Italian and international partners, in line with our corporate goals," said Giuseppe Lasco, Co-General Manager of Poste Italiane. "We will continue to work to be an increasingly representative point of reference for the country in the ESG sphere."
