EcoVadis Award: THIMM wins the silver medal

The EcoVadis ratings consider 21 criteria which are subdivided into the four themes of labour and human rights, environment, ethics and sustainable procurement. These criteria are based on international corporate social responsibility standards which include, for instance, global compact principles and the conventions of international labour organisations. THIMM scored more points than the sector average in each of the four themes and was awarded the silver medal as a result. This outcome positions THIMM within the top 18 percent of companies rated from the same sector.

Where do the strengths of the company lie? In the EcoVadis environment rating THIMM gained points thanks to its reduced energy consumption and its use of natural materials and in the labour and human rights theme the company’s flexible working organisation for employees was rated positively. The transparent reporting, the measures undertaken to promote employee health and safety and the Code of Conduct for suppliers were also reflected positively in the EcoVadis rating. THIMM is currently further developing its existing sustainability strategy.

What is EcoVadis? EcoVadis is a recognised and independent ratings platform that verifies corporate social responsibility according to internationally applicable standards. The aim of EcoVadis is to make corporate social responsibility performance transparent to business partners. EcoVadis also supports companies to improve their sustainability performance.
