Boxon GmbH receives gold status in the Ecovadis CSR rating

In the second quarter of 2018, Boxon GmbH carried out an evaluation of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance by Ecovadis. Ecovadis is a platform for reliable CSR assessments, taking into account the sector, size and geographic location of each company. It offers business partners a transparent exchange in the field of CSR.

In the Ecovadis assessment, Boxon was audited for human rights, occupational safety, fair business and environmental practices. As an international company in the bulk business, we are facing important responsibilities and we take this task very seriously. The commitment to global standards and guidelines such as SA 8000, ISO14001, the 10 principles of the Global Compact are part of those responsibilities. We have integrated these commitments into our corporate policy and Code of Conduct and apply them internally as well as with business partners. A dedicated supplier agreement and regular audits ensure compliance with these strict requirements. In addition, we are continuously working to reduce our carbon footprint and to create innovative product solutions that help to protect the climate and the environment. Most recently, Boxon made an important step in that direction, as the first company in the big bag sector to include climate-neutral products in its portfolio.

After having been certified for the last time with a Silver Status in 2014, Boxon could now improve its’ score to Gold status.  Particularly noteworthy is the fact that Boxon is represented in the TOP 2% of all companies in the category "Manufacturers of plastic products" and in the TOP 3% of all companies that have been evaluated on Ecovadis.

This is a very good result for Boxon, but it also shows that corporate responsibility plays an important role in the context of global sustainability goals. We are very happy with the positive feedback from Ecovadis and continue to expand our CSR engagements and activities in the future.
