Sustainability is a word that everyone is familiar with, but what does it mean for organisations, people, and the environment we live in? How do you know the organisation that you are dealing with is doing its bit to ensure “sustainability” is at the heart of its operations?
At KDM Group, we are committed to sustainability across all areas of the business whilst remaining an ethical and responsible organisation. To show our commitment and certify our accountability, we are assessed yearly by EcoVadis and currently hold the silver sustainability rating and are in the 92nd percentile for the Construction industry but what does this mean? It means that from the total number of contractors and suppliers audited by Ecovadis KDM scored above 91% of all companies assessed in the construction sector.
Accreditations help guide you on who are the right organisations to work with. The EcoVadis accreditation is the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 100,000+ rated companies.
Part of the EcoVadis Accreditations’ primary objectives is to ensure that each organisation is sustainable sourcing through their procurement but still meeting the stakeholder’s objectives and looking after the environment, so it’s about looking after the triple bottom line – People, planet and profit.
The EcoVadis methodology is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000, covering 200+ spend categories and 175+ countries. The Sustainability Scorecard illustrates performance across 21 indicators in four themes:
Benefits of Ecovadis
The yearly review gives organisations the ability to continuously improve year on year and is broken down into scorecard reporting on each theme which also identifies areas that could be improved upon within the business.
Having a benchmark against other organisations that are leading the way is critical as it gives organisations ammunition to keep striving to be better for their customers, the environment and the future of their business.
