Lucas Lammers, CEO: “We are moving from compliance to purpose. Every day, valuable products and resources are lost on their journey through the supply chain. As a manufacturer and distributor of flexible transport packaging, we protect valuable goods from going to waste during transportation and storage. Safeguarding their economic, environmental and social investment. We can also design our packaging in such a way as to eliminate packaging waste and other negative environmental and social impacts related to our packaging.
We are very proud that EcoVadis has recognized the steps we are taking. 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.”
EcoVadis was founded with the belief that businesses can contribute to improving the current state of our environment. Since 2007, the organisation has become a trusted partner of procurement departments of several multinationals. EcoVadis has a unique CSR assessment methodology and helps companies become more sustainable through the adaption of more sustainable practices. Their methodology is based on Sustainable Development Standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative, United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000.
Each year, organisations can apply for evaluation. Based on scores for each of the drivers with an overall score of at least 50/100, the organisation may be rewarded a bronze, silver, gold or platinum medal. LC Packaging has been evaluated since 2017.
LC Packaging is at a crossroad in its sustainability journey and has decided to embed sustainability into the core business and embrace its purpose: Contribute to a world without waste. The company has identified three global issues that urgently need to be addressed and where it can make a major impact: Working poverty, Waste and pollution, and Climate change.
These three issues have been translated into ambitious goals that should be achieved no later than 2030. Read more about LC Packaging’s sustainability strategy in its online document: 2030 Ambition.
