EQUANS, the new name for ENGIE’s services-led activity, has been awarded a Platinum EcoVadis medal for the second year running. The award is a powerful, independent endorsement of the company’s sustainability management putting EQUANS in the top one percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis.
EcoVadis assesses the sustainability management of more than 75,000 companies to provide procurement professionals with key information about their existing and potential supply chain partners. Assessment procedures are tailored to industry sectors and company size and examine a wide range of criteria under 4 broad categories of the Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement, including current performance and continuous improvement.
Jamie Quinn, Director of Responsible Business and SHEQ at EQUANS UK & Ireland commented: “For many organisations, verifying the sustainability credentials of their supply chain partners is critical to their own sustainability commitments. At EQUANS we are focused on driving the sustainability agenda and helping our customers embrace a greener, more efficient and sustainable world. Being awarded this Platinum EcoVadis rating for the second consecutive year, demonstrates our commitment to sustainability management and gives confidence to our current and future partners that EQUANS continues to lead the way in sustainability management and has the expertise and experience to add value to their performance.”
The award by EcoVadis has been made under EQUANS’ current legal name, ENGIE Services Limited, which uses the trading brand EQUANS.
