CSR Platinum Medal

EcoVadis is an independent organisation that conducts internationally recognised, evidence-based CSR assessments. The auditors have already studied the CSR policies of more than 100,000 companies in 200 sectors, in 75 countries, and the assessment method is examined by a scientific committee.

EcoVadis medals reward efforts in Corporate Social Responsibility. There are four recognition levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The highest award, the EcoVadis Platinum Award, recognises the top 1% of companies that outperform their competitors.

The EcoVadis assessment criteria vary according to the company’s business sector, size and geographical location. These criteria are based on leading CSR standards, such as the UN Global Compact, ILO conventions, GRI standards, national laws and regulations, and ISO 26000. The company’s rating score is assessed across the four areas of CSR performance. The 4 EcoVadis assessment areas are: Environment, Ethics, Social and Human Rights, and Responsible Purchasing.

LG Industries was awarded the highest distinction, the Platinum Medal.
