Silver medal from EcoVadis for sustainability strategy
The areas evaluated were environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. Optima's sustainability strategy is assessed annually by EcoVadis in order to identify new potentials and further advance existing activities.
Leap from bronze to silver"The leap from the bronze medal from the previous year to the current silver medal shows that we are on the right track with our sustainability strategy. We want to become holistically excellent in the areas of environment, social affairs and corporate governance," says Dr Stefan König, managing director at Optima.
Optima's company-wide sustainability strategy "We care for tomorrow" has consisted of three pillars since May 2022: Circular Packaging, Sustainable Technology and Corporate Sustainability. With this, Optima is aiming at packaging solutions for a circular economy and resource-saving production processes, which are developed in partnership with customers. In addition, previous activities have been integrated into a holistic environmental and climate strategy. Concrete goals for the coming years have been set, as well as the claim in the area of social and sustainable corporate governance. The regular evaluation by EcoVadis enables optimisation processes to be identified at an early stage. The current silver medal status remains valid for twelve months and is then reassessed.
