Through the partnership with EcoVadis, Sidel is confident that it will be able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in the goods and services it purchases by almost thirty per cent by 2030
EcoVadis has over 17 years of experience in supply chain sustainability assessment and has rated over 125,000 companies. The organisation rates businesses based on four key categories: environmental impact, labour and human rights standards, ethics and sustainable procurement practices.
Francesca Bellucci, Head of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) at Sidel, commented, “Our sustainable supply chain strategy is central to our ESG practices: more than 10 per cent of our greenhouse gas emissions occur upstream, and we take full accountability for human rights enforcement across the full value chain. Strong relationships with suppliers are pivotal to reach our ambitious ESG objectives.”
“We have already encouraged our suppliers to join campaigns such as SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Disclosure Exchange) and CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), and in 2023 we transitioned our sustainability assessments to EcoVadis. Our goal is to have our suppliers engaged on the EcoVadis platform to further involve our partners in the sustainability roadmap,” adds Lisete Pereira, Responsible Sourcing and Project Manager at Sidel.
Through the partnership with EcoVadis, Sidel is confident that it will be able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in the goods and services it purchases by almost thirty percent by 2030 when compared to the 2019 baseline as well as enshrine respect for human rights and ethics-based governance across the supply chain.
