Siemon earns Gold Rating from EcoVadis, in top 5% of global firms
Wed, 7th Feb 2024

The Siemon Company, an international expert in network infrastructure solutions, has proudly announced its recent success in earning a Gold Rating from EcoVadis, the globally respected provider of business sustainability ratings. This achievement positions Siemon amongst the leading top 5% of over 100,000 companies worldwide rated by EcoVadis.

EcoVadis utilises a stringent assessment strategy that measures a company's performance across an array of criteria within four primary areas: Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. Anchored in recognised international standards of sustainability, which include the UN Global Compact's Ten Principles, SBTi as well as ILO conventions, GRI standards, the ISO 14001, 45001, and 26000, these ratings offer a data-oriented evaluation of a firm's performance while offering a clear path for relentless improvement.

This laudable recognition illustrates a significant leap from Siemon's prior achievement of a Silver Rating, strengthening its commitment towards upholding ESG leadership. It stands as the most recent key milestone in Siemon's ongoing ESG journey.

John Siemon, Chairman of Siemon's Board of Directors, conveyed the firm's joy regarding their remarkable accomplishment, emphasising their deep pride in the recognition received. He highlighted this achievement as a strong affirmation of Siemon's steadfast dedication to sustainability excellence, seamlessly integrated into all facets of their operations.

It is a powerful validation of our unwavering commitment to sustainability excellence, integrated into every aspect of our operations, from the initial design of our products to meticulous energy and waste management across our facilities."

He went on to attribute the Gold Medal to their predetermined strategic advancement towards their ambitious sustainability targets and expressed confidence about maintaining this upward trajectory in the forthcoming 2024 assessment. "We are determined to continue to raise the bar further in the 2024 assessment," John Siemon adds.
