We have been awarded a Gold Medal as a recognition of our EcoVadis CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Rating.
EcoVadis controls the first independent collaborative platform that provides qualifications of suppliers (more than 50,000 companies worldwide) with sustainability criteria and is obtained through an extensive questionnaire that surveys the sustainability performance of companies, valuing the documentation that guarantee the answers. In addition to the general score, EcoVadis since 2019 must meet two requirements:
- The results sheet does not include any negative results in the 360º Watch Findings on Environment, Labor Practices, Human Rights and Sustainable Acquisitions in the last three years.
- The results sheet does not include any serious negative findings of the 360º Watch Findings on Ethics in the last five years.
The methodology they use for measurement is built on very demanding international Corporate Social Responsibility values such as the Global Reporting Initiative or the United Nations Global Compact.
This certification reaffirms and strengthens Kao's commitment to Sustainability, based on offering products minimizing environmental impact and achieving a differentiation in both the national and international market.
