Platinum for responsible behaviour. HOPPECKE among the TOP 1%.
Every year, HOPPECKE undergoes an assessment by EcoVadis with regard to its sustainability activities.
In recent years, HOPPECKE has received the Gold Medal from EcoVadis for its sustainable behaviour several times in a row. Now, Europe's largest privately owned manufacturer of industrial batteries has been honoured with Platinum for the first time.
This puts HOPPECKE in the top 1% of all companies assessed across all companies certified by EcoVadis. It is the highest possible ranking that a company can receive.
Ludwig Merz, Sustainability Officer at HOPPECKE, is delighted with this special award. "We are pleased that our efforts in recent years are reflected in our outstanding EcoVadis rating. The platinum medal is not only an outstanding recognition for us, but also motivates us to maintain this high level and to continuously improve our sustainability activities."
Every year, EcoVadis analyses the sustainability efforts of companies based on 21 criteria covering topics such as environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Over 100,000 companies from more than 175 countries undertake the EcoVadis assessment to review their sustainability practices.
