Somas awarded silver medal by EcoVadis 2023

Somas has been working together with EcoVadis, one of the world’s largest providers of sustainability ratings, since 2019. Every year, EcoVadis evaluates more than 90,000 companies operating in more than 200 different industries across more than 160 countries. Their evaluations are based on international sustainability standards, such as Global Reporting Initiative, UN Global Compact and ISO 26000.

Each year, the companies being evaluated are asked to answer a number of questions focused on four different areas. The areas are: the environment, the working environment, human rights, ethics and sustainable purchasing. They also have to submit applicable documentation proving that they are implementing the processes and achieving the outcomes that they claim.

In connection with the most recent evaluation, we received the fantastic news that we had been awarded a silver medal. This means that we belong to the 89.2 percentile of all companies assessed by EcoVadis. Somas works actively with sustainability and has done so for many years. It is thanks to our continuous efforts to improve in this area that we have achieved such a good outcome from our assessment.

Somas will naturally continue to work on new initiatives focused on sustainability, at the same time as maintaining the good habits we already have. Our vision is to run the business with as little impact on the environment as possible. We also work actively to champion a good working environment, human rights, business ethics and sustainability within our supply chains.

In short, we want sustainability to permeate our entire business. The fact that we have been awarded a silver medal by EcoVadis serves as confirmation that we are on the right track. Of course, we want to stay on this track in future as well.
