Gold for Röhm in EcoVadis rating
A special focus in 2022 was the additional carbon management rating. Here, Röhm has provided transparency on its climate and CO2 reduction targets and the roadmap to achieve them.
The gold EcoVadis rating places Röhm among the seven percent of the best-rated 100,000 companies in 2022, putting Röhm above the industry average in all categories. " In particular, we were able to significantly improve on the previous year's rating in the ethics and sustainable procurement categories, although we also made further gains in the other categories. We take the result as an incentive to improve even further," says Hans-Peter Hauck, Chief Operation Officer at Röhm. "Our development in the carbon management rating is also particularly positive. While we were certified as 'Beginner' status in 2021, we received 'Advanced' status in 2022," says Steffen Krill, Head of Sustainability at Röhm. "Financial markets, customers and suppliers are increasingly basing their purchasing and financing decisions on ratings such as the EcoVadis label. Every improvement is an investment in the future of our company," says Peter, responsible for sustainability programs at Röhm.
The prerequisite for the Eco-Vadis rating was a comprehensive assessment in which questions about the impact of business and procurement activities on the environment, labor and human rights, and ethical dimensions had to be answered and these had to be proven with appropriate documents.
