EcoVadis, a provider of business sustainability ratings, assesses companies in four key areas—environment, labor and human rights, sustainable procurement, and ethics—rating them relative to their peers. Results for SGD Pharma show:

• Overall performance in the 98% percentile for manufacturers of glass and glass products.

• Particularly high scores for sustainable procurement, and labor and human rights – in the top 1% and 2% for the sector, respectively.

• A continuing commitment to sustainability with an establishing track record of exemplary scores.

“This is an excellent achievement for SGD Pharma,” said Laurent Millet, Group Quality Director, “and I’d like to pay tribute to everyone who’s worked so hard to deliver it. As a leader in the industry we are committed to demonstrating the highest levels of corporate social responsibility. Sustainability, in the broadest sense of the word, is a key part of that so it’s wonderful to be awarded a rating that reflects our dedication and effort.”

SGD Pharma advances sustainability initiatives under three headings – people, environmental impact, and business values. Focusing on environmental goals, these are now an integral part of the company’s industrial strategy with an ambitious target in place to reduce carbon footprint by 40% by 2040 (relative to 2020 figures). This is being realized by, for example, improving energy performance, electrification, heat recovery, increasing green electricity use and the switching to decarbonated raw materials.
