EcoVadis medals are awarded to businesses that demonstrate a robust management system addressing sustainability goals. Euromed excelled in all four EcoVadis evaluation criteria: Environment, Ethics, Labour and Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement. This award affirms Euromed’s commitment to sustainability, which is reflected in its long-standing practices and ongoing innovative initiatives.
Edgar Rojas, Chief Financial Officer at Euromed, says: “The platinum medal is a clear acknowledgment of the efforts that Euromed have been making for years in terms of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG ) criteria. Sustainability drives all corporate decision-making and generates maximum impact for both the company and our stakeholders, which is directly manifested through our “Beyond Net-Zero” strategy plan. As a producer of natural botanical ingredients, our business model is strongly aligned with sustainability and we must therefore lead by example in the pursuit of a long-term positive impact. Addressing decarbonisation requires a bold commitment and tenacious effort. Our success reflects the significant investments we have carried out to put sustainability at the heart of our strategy, which also involves employees, customers, suppliers and local communities, to achieve our goals.”
