EcoVadis Sustainability Certification
Our company places great importance on corporate social responsibility (CSR) because we want to take on responsibility for our employees and for the society of which we are part.
At first glance, sustainability and the event industry may not seem to go hand in hand. But thinking and working sustainably does not mean being 100% sustainable right away. Our goal as a company is to take the path of continuous improvement, which will help us and our clients to assume responsibility and realise more sustainable events.
We can only do this together, and the rating our efforts receive is often not as obvious as it appears at first glance. However, we are convinced that our world is becoming more sustainable because, for example, a global climate conference has taken place and we are proud to have contributed to its success.
In order to ensure the best possible CSR assessment for ourselves and our clients, we have decided to commission an independent, holistic rating procedure.
The organisation we chose for this task was EcoVadis, the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings. In addition to the assessment itself, the various indicators help companies to discover the potential for optimisation by themselves and to query their own processes.
Since it was founded in 2007, the agency has rated 75,000 companies across a total of 21 categories in four subject areas: "Environment", "Labour & Human Rights", "Ethics" and "Sustainable Procurement".
In the spring of 2021, we were awarded a silver medal, which provided us with the motivation to maintain our efforts for the recertification procedures in the coming years.
