Pilkington sustainability

NSG Group / Pilkington Sustainability with EcoVadis

«In order to meet Pilkington objectives of completing assessments of Pilkington key suppliers as well as further due diligence on our suppliers of high environmental impact Pilkington has engaged in the services of EcoVadis.  EcoVadis is a well-established company in the area of CSR/ sustainability evaluation and has many major companies as clients. After looking at several potential service providers, a decision was made to select EcoVadis based on its global reach, comprehensive online assessment tool, the location and size of our supplier and also its impressive portfolio of customers. Important aspects of the evaluation are the ethical and social behavior of our suppliers as well as their environmental management system and approaches to health and safety. Using a third-party provider means Pilkington can accelerate the process of completing assessments and, for the low-scoring suppliers identified as a significant risk we will continue to use the services of our Pilkington Supplier Development Team to work with them on an improvement plan including clear timescales for implementation»
