LC Packaging retains highest EcoVadis CSR rating: “ A reward for sustainable commitment”

LC Packaging’s sustainability efforts have been acknowledged and awarded the EcoVadis Platinum CSR rating for the second consecutive year for all its affiliates and production facilities. With this rating, LC Packaging remains part of only 1% of all 75,000 companies assessed by EcoVadis worldwide with such a high CSR rating. The family-owned company received the Platinum medal for its actions that have a positive impact on its people, customers and the environment.

EcoVadis reviews organisations in all industries across a number of areas that are key to meeting sustainable targets, including environment, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement impacts. EcoVadis especially acknowledges our labour practices (9/10) and Sustainable procurement efforts (8/10).

Setting an example to inspire others

Lucas Lammers, CEO: “Sustainable business practices are the responsibility of every country, every company and every individual. But even if some decide not to act, we commit to do. Every little bit helps and every example inspires others to act. We continue to learn about our impact on the environment and society at large and the opportunities we have to make a change. Taking actions always brings challenges, but we are very proud that EcoVadis has recognised the steps we are taking to leave a better world for future generations to enjoy, without having to limit the choices they can make or the available recourses.

This Platinum rating truly is a reward for the vision and efforts we have shown in the field of CSR worldwide and complements our extensive portfolio of certificates and standards. We continue to look for opportunities to further contribute to the well-being of people and the environment.”
