Autoneum Holding Ltd has been awarded the gold medal in the 2023 EcoVadis sustainability rating, ranking the automotive supplier in the top 5% of companies assessed. Following a silver medal the previous year, the Company was able to further improve the overall rating of its sustainability performance in the four categories Environment, Labor and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement and achieved the second-highest recognition level.
As part of its commitment to transparency towards its stakeholders and the public at large, Autoneum reports regularly on its key developments and achievements in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). In addition to reporting in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, Autoneum uses external platforms such as EcoVadis – a globally recognized sustainability rating agency – to assess the quality of its sustainability management system. EcoVadis uses 21 crite-ria based on international CSR standards to rate companies in four categories: Environment, Labor and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. Since its foundation in 2007, EcoVadis has assessed the sustainability performance of more than 100000 companies from 175 countries. In the 2023 sustainability rating by EcoVadis, Autoneum achieved gold medal status for the first time, placing it in the top 5 % of companies assessed. Having already been awarded the EcoVadis silver medal in 2022, Autoneum thus moved up to the second-highest recognition level in this year’s rating, thanks in particular to significant progress in the Environment and Labour and Human Rights catego-ries.
“We are proud to have been awarded the EcoVadis gold medal. The recognition is a testament to our ongoing efforts to improve Autoneum’s sustainability performance in all areas of operations,” says Pascaline Brégeon, Head Strategy and Sustainability at Autoneum. “As the globally leading supplier in acoustic and thermal management for vehicles, we recognize our corporate responsibility to mitigate the effects of climate change and preserve natural resources. This is reflected not only in the continuous expansion of our sustainable product portfolio, but also in Autoneum’s commitment to global initiatives such as the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and the UN Global Compact.”
