Fleet Logistics earns Bronze Award for sustainability from EcoVadis

By / 3 weeks ago / News / No Comments

Fleet Logistics Group has won a Bronze Award in the latest survey by Paris-based sustainability ratings platform EcoVadis.

It’s the fifth year that Fleet Logistics has taken part in the EcoVadis survey

Fleet Logistics was rated in the top 25% of companies in the 2021 survey for its overall sustainability performance in the ‘other professional, scientific and technical activities’ category.

The ratings company assessed Fleet Logistics’ performance in terms of sustainable procurement, ethics, labour and human rights and environment.

And it scored Fleet Logistics as being in the top 8% of companies in its category that it assessed in terms of ethics, and in the top 15% of companies in its category for its performance in sustainable procurement.

It’s the fifth year that Fleet Logistics has taken part in the EcoVadis survey – and also the firm’s 25th anniversary year.

Thorsten Bertram, head of marketing at Fleet Logistics, said: “We have been participating in the EcoVadis survey for the last five years as we recognised the value in having certain KPIs within our business measured by an independent authority.

“It is one that a significant number of clients also use to measure these impacts of their own businesses and as such has developed into a useful reference point.”

Fleet Logistics was initially invited to take part by one of its long-standing and valued telecommunications clients, in a form of challenge that the business said it was more than happy to take on as a means of independent measurement.

“We were delighted with this year’s results, and particularly pleased with our performance in the field of ethics as we feel this reflects our improved performance as a multi-national, multi-cultural, ethnically diverse and equal opportunities employer,” added Bertram.
