Kemira has been awarded the Gold Recognition Level for the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) performance for the fourth consecutive year by EcoVadis, a collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains. With a score of 75/100 points, Kemira is among the top 5% performers evaluated by EcoVadis in the category of chemical industry.

“Participation in the Ecovadis assessment helps us to better understand our CSR performance, and how we compare against the chemical industry. More and more our customers raise questions about our environmental and social performance, so the Ecovadis assessment results allow us to demonstrate our commitment and communicate an independent assessment scorecard on our CSR performance.” says Tuula Paajanen, Director, Corporate Responsibility.

EcoVadis is a collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains. The methodology is built on international CSR standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and the ISO 26000, covering 190 spend categories, 150 countries and 21 CSR issues grouped in four themes: environmental impacts of operations and products, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
