In recent years, they obtained the EcoVadis Gold Medal in five countries: Belgium, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands and the UK. Together with Romania, VPK Packaging France was the first country in the group to qualify for EcoVadis. VPK Packaging France is the first country to add an EcoVadis Platinum Medal to the list, putting local activities among the top one percent of the 100.000+ companies evaluated by EcoVadis.
“Sustainability ratings such as EcoVadis are playing an increasingly important role in companies’ supplier selection processes,” explains Philippe Tran, Managing Director, VPK France. “A few years ago, only a few customers occasionally asked us about our EcoVadis score. Today, this has become a must-have for many companies.”
He continues, “The EcoVadis rating platform provides stakeholders with the assurance that VPK is synonymous with a sustainable supply chain. The platform not only shows the areas in which we perform well, but also those in which we can still make progress. Moreover, we can use the platform to evaluate our partners throughout our supply chain. It provides us with the necessary tools to maintain and further develop the sustainability of our supply chain, today and in the future.”
Tran concludes, “Obtaining the EcoVadis Platinum Medal guarantees our customers that they can rely on us as a trusted partner in achieving their proper sustainability targets. This achievement is the recognition of our efforts and teamwork in improving each and every item where we identified gaps that we could close. I am very proud of this achievement and I would like to thank and congratulate everyone within VPK who contributed to this great result.”
