EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, has awarded Nordkalk with a Gold EcoVadis Medal. This result places Nordkalk among the top 5 percent of the more than 65.000 companies assessed by EcoVadis.

Nordkalk’s score for 2020 assessment is 68/100, which is higher or equal to that of 96% of all companies rated by EcoVadis within our industry (Quarrying of stone, sand and clay).

Of the four sustainability themes (Environment, Labor & Human rights, Ethics and Sustainable procurement) assessed by EcoVadis, Nordkalk performed the best in the Environmental part with a score of 80/100. Also Labor & Human rights part was assessed to be on an advanced level. Most room for improvement was found on the Sustainable procurement part.

“I am delighted that our score improved from last year and our efforts in developing our sustainability work and reporting are paying off. Nordkalk has a long history with environmental reporting, strong focus on environmental issues and occupational safety as well as clearly communicated targets. This commitment shows in the results”, says Nordkalk’s Sustainability Director Håkan Pihl.

“In the coming years, we will try to improve our performance further. We will still sharpen our long term strategic targets, work on the process and documentation for sustainable procurement policies and issues and aim for fully GRI-compliant sustainability reporting”, Håkan Pihl concludes.

Nordkalk’s Sustainability Programme will be revised to better support the renewed company strategy and stakeholder expectations during the rest of the year 2020.
