Global specialist in temperature-controlled logistics for life sciences, Biocair, has been awarded a 2023 EcoVadis silver medal for its overall achievements in sustainability. This is the second year that Biocair has achieved the silver medal from the esteemed sustainability rating provider.
EcoVadis is the leading provider of trusted business sustainability ratings with a global network of more than 100,000 rated companies. The EcoVadis methodology is based on international sustainability standards, like those from United Nations Global Impact (UNGC) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
This year, Biocair aimed to improve its score and was assessed by EcoVadis across 21 criteria from four areas, including environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
Of winning the award, Chris Cooke, CEO at Biocair, says “The work we have done to achieve our 2023 silver rating, the progress we have made and the improvements we continue to make in our sustainability efforts at Biocair give us much to be proud of. We recognize that sustainability is a never-ending journey. Remaining aware of new opportunities to do better, and of new emerging risks, will remain an essential part of our focus on sustainability.”
Biocair will use the insights gained from the EcoVadis assessment to further enhance collaboration with customers focused on sustainability. The Biocair scorecard provides customers with a transparent, independent view of the company’s dedication to sustainability throughout its business operations.
“Biocair’s goal is to take lessons from the evaluation and build them into an improvement plan for future performance. This will challenge Biocair as they focus on the areas that matter most to their customers, to the environment and to the societies around the world in which they operate.
Providing sustainable solutions is an exciting challenge, and one that Biocair is equal to. This silver medal rating is another important indicator of their commitment to sustainability and provides them a strong base on which to build.” Stephen Cawley, Global Head of ESG.
