WEILBURGER Graphics receives EcoVadis gold medal

Gerhardshofen, January 17, 2024 - WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, an internationally renowned manufacturer of varnishes, inks and adhesives for the graphic arts industry, has been awarded the gold medal in this year's EcoVadis ranking for its sustainability successes. The company, which had its CSR activities evaluated for the second time, is among the top 5 percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis and has improved further compared to the previous year. The gold medal was awarded in recognition of the company's success in the area of sustainability.

EcoVadis is an independent rating agency that assesses companies worldwide with regard to their corporate social responsibility (CSR). EcoVadis evaluates management systems in the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. EcoVadis' assessment methodology is based on international standards such as the Global Reporting Index (GRI), ISO 26000 and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact.

The evidence-based assessment has made EcoVadis the world's most trusted provider of sustainability ratings. The platform has a global network of more than 125,000 companies and covers 200 industries and 175 countries.

Günter Korbacher, Managing Director of WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, on the renewed assessment: "We are aware of the importance of the EcoVadis ranking in international business today and are naturally delighted that we have been awarded the EcoVadis gold medal for our work at the second attempt. This demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable future for customers, businesses and communities alike and how diligently we have implemented our initial assessment and EcoVadis' suggestions for improvement over the past year. For us, sustainability means continuously improving our products and processes to further reduce energy consumption, waste and material costs in the long term. We respect the dignity and fundamental rights of every individual. We promote a working environment that is characterized by respect, trust and fairness. The EcoVadis assessment and the comprehensive optimization recommendations have provided us with excellent support in achieving the goals we have set ourselves in the shortest possible time." Günter Korbacher continues: "Especially the perspective of an independent and established rating provider such as EcoVadis makes such an optimization process much easier from our point of view. In the coming year, we will continue to carefully analyze and use the suggestions for improvement that EcoVadis provides with each rating process in order to further expand our position as a sustainable, responsible and environmentally conscious company. Our next goal is, of course, to achieve the EcoVadis Platinum Medal. Not because of our reputation, but because of the positive effects that getting there will have on our business."
