NJC, the cleaning and support services company, has been awarded a Gold EcoVadis medal, following its recent sustainability assessment.
EcoVadis is a sustainability ratings provider and tens of thousands of companies partner with them to collaborate on sustainability with a common platform, universal scorecard, benchmarks and performance improvement tools. Its assessment reflects the quality of NJC’s sustainability management system, with the Gold medal being a significant achievement for a medium sized company.
NJC’s assessment was undertaken as part of a customer’s sustainability initiative, as the supply chain is the most powerful level for sustainability impact. The assessment covers the four areas of Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement, with evidence submitted to prove performance in each category.
Paul Crilly, Managing Director commented: “NJC’s responsibility to our people, the planet and the communities we serve is the top priority in our sustainable business model. We are proud to have been recognised in the top five per cent of all companies that EcoVadis has assessed, and aim to continue to improve our performance.”
