Corporate Social Responsibility – Top Marks for Vinnolit


In July 2016, in an assessment by the global rating platform EcoVadis (www.ecovadis.com), Vinnolit achieved a very good evaluation of its CSR performance ("Gold Recognition Level"). As a result, Vinnolit now is one of the best three percent of the over 20,000 companies so far assessed by EcoVadis. In this assessment, the company's activities in the fields of environmental protection, good working conditions, fair business practices and sustainable procurement are put under the microscope. This rating is important not least because EcoVadis is a partner of the initiative "Together for Sustainability" (TfS). Many international companies in the chemical industry are part of this initiative.

Corporate Social Responsibility has become increasingly more important in recent years. Companies today are not only expected to profess social responsibility, but also to prove that they are living up to their commitment. “Responsible, sustainable action is firmly rooted in the vision and values of Vinnolit”, affirms Vinnolit Managing Director Dr. Karl-Martin Schellerer, adding: "The excellent result of the evaluation of our CSR performance is pleasing confirmation of our corporate policy, but above all it spurs us on to further, continuous improvement."
