almaak international was awarded the silver medal of the independent sustainability rating EcoVadis in December 2020 for the company’s sustainability performance. This allowed almaak to establish itself in the top quarter of all rated companies. The EcoVadis rating covers a wide range of non-financial management systems, including environmental impact, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Each company is evaluated on issues relevant to its size, location, and industry.
These evidence-based assessments are translated into easy-to-read scorecards with scores ranging from zero to one hundred (0-100) and medals (bronze, silver and gold). In addition, the scorecards highlight strengths and areas for improvement that assessed companies can use to better target their sustainability efforts and create corrective action plans to improve their CSR performance.
Large multinational companies are working with EcoVadis to improve the sustainability of their global supply chain. In doing so, they leverage the impact of their spending as a “positive force” to help business partners achieve results that go beyond compliance.
