Borealis is proud to have achieved the Platinum Medal in the annual EcoVadis assessment of corporate social responsibility (CSR) for the first time. After reaching Gold level for four consecutive years, we were able to improve our sustainability performance even further in 2021. This places us in the top 1 percent of CSR performers globally of the companies evaluated by EcoVadis.

EcoVadis is a provider of universal sustainability ratings, with more than 75,000 companies from over 200 industries taking part and committing to ensuring responsible sourcing throughout the supply chain. The assessment covers a range of CSR topics, including environmental impact, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. In all four categories, Borealis demonstrated an advanced sustainability management system and performed well above the average of our reference group.

EcoVadis is an important platform for comparing and promoting sustainability across the value chain. Borealis encourages its suppliers to take the assessment and invites its customers to request its EcoVadis results. Leading by example is an important part of Borealis’ commitment to sustainability and we also encourage our business partners to show their commitment.

Borealis also participates in Together for Sustainability - a chemical industry initiative for sustainable supply chains. Together for Sustainability advances sustainable procurement practices by providing a platform for member organisations to share the results of supplier audits and assessments on sustainability performance.

“We are very proud of having increased our EcoVadis rating from gold to platinum. This is an excellent confirmation for our commitment and focus on sustainability,” says Markus Horcher, Director Sustainability & Public Affairs.
