Amsterdam/Schiphol, The Netherlands – 24 May 2016. Teleplan has earned a gold EcoVadis rating, indicating the company’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) throughout its global operations which serve customers from 95 countries. The awarded gold rating places Teleplan among the top 5 percent of organisations assessed for environmental practices and sustainability performance. EcoVadis is an independent rating agency that is widely recognized around the world. Using methodology built on international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000, EcoVadis has developed a rigorous rating system which is highly regarded by global supply chains and industries.
Among the activities contributing to the favourable rating is Teleplan’s membership of the United Nations Global Compact since November 2015 and its very systematic approach over the last 2 years to improve CSR policies, documentation and tracking & reporting tools at all service center locations across the globe.
“Teleplan’s EcoVadis ranking is evidence that Teleplan is a top performing organisation with regards to environment, labor practices, fair business practices, and responsible and sustainable procurement. More and more large corporations are under immense pressure from stakeholders to be transparent about their sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility practices and this includes their supply chains. This excellent result includes Teleplan among the top 5% performers evaluated by EcoVadis. It also serves as a critical enabler for most of our large customers and our Circular Economy focus”, stated Chris Nielsen, Global Director Operations Office.
