RS Group builds upon its silver and gold ratings from 2020 and 2021 attaining notable leadership in the fields of environment and sustainable procurement

RS Group recently announced it has been awarded a platinum medal by EcoVadis, the independent provider of global sustainability ratings used by many large organizations to help support sustainable purchasing decisions.

RS Group is no stranger to the award, having been a previous recipient of EcoVadis medal rankings and improving from silver to gold and now to the highest ranking, platinum, over the last couple of years.

The platinum medal puts RS Group in the top 1% of the 100,000-plus rated companies assessed by EcoVadis with each company rated on the material sustainability risks and issues for their size, location, and industry. In addition, RS Group was highlighted in the assessment as a leader in the areas of environment and sustainable procurement. RS Group now also joins RS France who achieved the platinum medal earlier in the year.

“We are immensely proud to have attained the EcoVadis platinum medal and this demonstrates our strong commitment to ESG,” said Debbie Lentz, President ESG Solutions, RS Group. “However, this success does not mean we have reached the upper limit of our ambition and we are already investing in actions to further improve, and to help our customers and suppliers to reach their goals. In terms of spend, 47% of our suppliers are EcoVadis-rated companies, and we use these metrics to monitor and target ESG improvements with all our suppliers.”

The EcoVadis methodology is based on international sustainability standards (Global Reporting Initiative, United Nations Global Compact, ISO 26000). Its evidence-based assessment covers policies, actions, and results across the key sustainability and ESG (environment, social and governance) dimensions of environment, labor and human rights, business ethics and sustainable procurement.
