B+D commitment to sustainability honored
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility play a prominent role not only on the client side. Numerous initiatives and measures have long been established in everyday agency life. But how good are they and do they stand up to the strict requirements of many customers? A certification by the independent evaluation platform EvoVadis clearly shows that B+D is on an excellent path and awards its commitment with the EcoVadis silver medal.
EcoVadis annually ranks companies in terms of international sustainability criteria and social responsibility. The four areas of environment, working conditions, human rights and sustainable procurement are evaluated on the basis of global principles such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Global Compact, among others.
Compared with companies of similar industry, size and location, B+D Communications is among the top 25 percent of companies evaluated. The agency’s human resources are particularly well rated in terms of working conditions, career management and employee health.
In ongoing CSR and sustainability management, this award is a good gauge of one’s commitment. On this basis, existing measures are further optimized and new initiatives are launched in the agency. The goal is not only to create an inspiring, positive working environment for employees, but also to make a real contribution to the environment.
