Tosca Awarded the EcoVadis Gold Medal for Sustainability, Achieved by Only the Top Five Percent of Applicants
(ATLANTA, March 2, 2022) – Tosca, a global leader in reusable packaging solutions and pooling, has been awarded the EcoVadis Gold Medal for its sustainability initiatives in the EU. This award places Tosca in the top 5% of businesses rated by EcoVadis.
Tosca reached an overall score of 72 out of 100 in this assessment, placing the company in the 97th percentile of all applicants. Not only does this milestone show Tosca’s unwavering commitment to protecting the environment, but the award takes into account Tosca’s ethical and social responsibility performance. The ranking is based on four key areas: Environment, Ethics, Human and Labor Rights, and Sustainable Procurement. In order to gain the distinction of EcoVadis Gold, Tosca scored over 70/100 on all four of the key areas.
Karin Witton, PhD, Global Sustainability Director at Tosca, is excited, but not surprised, to see Tosca reach one of the highest honors within the EcoVadis ranking system. “Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at Tosca. Not only do we promote inherently sustainable services and products, but we have built a sustainability-minded culture that impacts the daily decisions of the Tosca team as a whole.”
This remarkable achievement is part of several initiatives planned this year to highlight Tosca’s focus on sustainability. Later this year Tosca’s first sustainability report will be published, sharing the organization’s initiatives and goals.
