EcoVadis gives third consecutive ‘Gold’ rating to Birla Carbon for Sustainable Practice

Ecovadis 2018Reviewed on an annual basis, EcoVadis has, for the third consecutive year, awarded Birla Carbon with a Gold level rating for sustainable practices. With a score of 71%, Birla Carbon occupies the top 2% of the companies assessed from our industry sector.

This rating was based on Birla Carbon’s sixth sustainability report – Share the Strength: Working Together for a Sustainable Future.

Birla Carbon Sustainability AssessmentSharing his thoughts on this achievement, Joe Gaynor, Chief Legal, Sustainability and Risk Officer, Birla Carbon, said, “With this third consecutive Gold rating, Birla Carbon continues to rank in the top of our industry and it is consistent with our drive to be the most respected, sustainable and dynamic global carbon black manufacturer. At Birla Carbon, sustainability is a group effort and involves each and every employee. We will continue to ‘Share the Strength’ through continuous innovation in the way we manufacture our products, support our communities and engage with our customers.”

A major highlight is that the EcoVadis assessors continue to recognise Birla Carbon’s progress and efforts in sustainable reporting and our EcoVadis score and assessment has been shared with a host of Birla Carbon’s top customers globally, thus ‘strengthening’ our image in the industry.

This year, EcoVadis modified its reporting format and did not provide ranking on pan industry sectors comprising over 55,000 companies from 150 countries. However, with this score of 71%, Birla Carbon occupies a strong position of being among the top 2% of companies in the sustainable practices space under the ‘Manufacture of other non-metallic mineral products’ industry.
