allmanhall become an EcoVadis Gold rated supplier
Who are EcoVadis?
EcoVadis is the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings enabling organisations to reduce risk, drive improvement and accelerate positive impacts on our planet and society. The EcoVadis sustainability assessment methodology is at the heart of its Ratings and Scorecards. It is an evaluation of how well the principles of Sustainability/CSR are integrated.
Following its annual sustainability assessment EcoVadis has recognised allmanhall as ‘Gold Rated’.
Mike Meek, allmanhall’s procurement and sustainability director, comments:
“This international rating system which covers ethics, sustainability and governance puts allmanhall on the 94 percentile of global businesses assessed.”
This is an incredible achievement for a family owned and managed organisation that was founded 17 years ago by a father and son team, in a garden shed! It is testament to the commitment allmanhall continues to make to improvements, transparency and sustainability. We’re challenging and transforming food supply so informed decisions become clear.
It follows our announcement earlier in the year that we have been accepted on to the UN Global Compact Initiative. This is a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of all responsible business practices.
At allmanhall, we have aligned and embedded the 10 principals of the initiative into our strategies and operations, committing to take responsible actions to create the world we all want.
Mike Meek, procurement and sustainability director, goes on to explain why this all matters:
“We need to change our ways of production and consumption. Now it falls to every individual, business, and nation to begin to collaborate to embed these principles and schemes like the UN Global Compact are therefore imperative – allowing for collaboration in a way never seen before.
EcoVadis brings a necessary transparency and accountability, hence why allmanhall’s recognition by this universal sustainability ratings & intelligence solution is so meaningful.”
Gold really does seem to be allmanhalll’s colour this year! As well as the EcoVadis Gold Award, we have achieved recognition for our high standards through the Investors in People Gold Accreditation.
This is testament to the culture and care that has been born out of this ethos and of the sincerity of allmanhall’s strong core values.
