ESG Ratings are used as an external verification and measure of our ESG performance. We have seen increasing importance of these ratings for our customers and business partners. So far, Christof Industries has been rated by EcoVadis on two occasions. EcoVadis is a global collaborative platform that provides sustainability ratings for procurers.
In 2021 Christof Industries Global GmbH (including all subsidiaries within the group of companies) received its first EcoVadis rating. We received a bronze medal and a number of improvement areas were identified throughout this process, including reporting on measurements and actions to increase sustainability; KPI and targets; and specific topics, including sustainable procurement, supplier CSR Code, CSR risk analysis, informational security, and anti-corruption, waste, and water management.
In 2022 we conducted a further assessment, to ensure our newly implemented sustainability measures were taken into account. We are glad to have improved our performance and received the silver medal. This places us within the top 18% of all companies rated by EcoVadis and the top 9% of all companies in our industry. Compared to our last assessment, we increased our overall score by 14 points. We were also able to identify further areas for improvement, particularly in the implementation of clear actions for more a sustainable value chain.
