EcoVadis Platinum is only given to the top 1% of the 75,000 companies assessed from all over the world. Holmen Paper’s both mills, Braviken and Hallsta, have ranked in the highest category every year since Holmen started participating in the audit.
In 2020, EcoVadis introduced Platinum as a category above Gold, and Holmen Paper’s mills received Platinum straight away. In the 2021 assessment, Holmen Paper was again awarded the Platinum medal for remarkably good environmental, social, and ethical performance.
EcoVadis is a global provider of business sustainability ratings. They provide tools and intelligence for companies who want to monitor and improve within sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Since the organisation was established in 2007, EcoVadis has grown steadily, using independent international experts to assess defined criteria from companies participating in the audit.
EcoVadis' methodology is aligned with international standards. Their assessment tool is universal, so it can be used to compare companies within defined sectors, but also to show how different sectors or geographical areas compare to each other. Most importantly, EcoVadis provides an independent rating of the supplier, that facilitates and supports buying decisions.
