There are now more than 75,000 companies from 160 countries that have their efforts in corporate social responsibility (CSR), i.e. sustainability and social responsibility, evaluated by the independent auditing organisation Ecovadis. trans-o-flex has already undergone this assessment for the fourth time and was again awarded a silver medal in February this year.
The overall assessment by Ecovadis includes the sub-areas of environment, sustainable procurement and ethics. trans-o-flex scored above average in the Environment category and, according to Ecovadis, is among the top four per cent of all companies in the road haulage sector.
The Ecovadis platform can also be used by consignors to view the CSR rating of service providers. This saves them and their partners individual independent CSR audits. According to Eco-vadis, companies such as BASF, Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Nestlé and Nokia use this service.
