We are very proud to announce that EcoVadis has awarded us gold status for our sustainability and CSR performance.
EcoVadis is the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 65,000 rated companies. Its methodology is based on strict international sustainability standards that include the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000.
“We are delighted that our efforts have been recognized by EcoVadis and are very proud of our gold status. At TUBEX Aluminium Tubes, we are deeply committed to meeting the highest ethical, environmental and professional standards,” said Thierry Bitout, CEO of TUBEX Aluminium Tubes. “With our CSR programme ‘Embracing the future’, we have created a framework that helps us to secure long-term success for our company and our products, while protecting both people and the environment. By joining the United Nations Global Compact, we have aligned our business with the ten universal principles covering human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. We also support the Sustainable Development Goals, which will play a central role in shaping our company’s efforts to create a fairer and more sustainable world.”
Our commitments and core values are also reflected in our Code of Conduct and our Supplier Code of Conduct, which set out the principles that guide our work at TUBEX Aluminium Tubes. They reflect our awareness that our business activities must be mindful of their social and ecological impact, and respectful of the rights of the individuals involved throughout the supply chain.
Our high rating in the environmental part of the EcoVadis assessment confirms our dedication to protecting the world around us. We operate with respect for the planet and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Reducing emissions, preserving natural resources, safely handling or avoiding hazardous waste, and promoting recycling and re-use have the highest priority in our company and are appropriately managed. Last year, we reached a key sustainability milestone in our industry when we launched the very first tube made of 100% recycled aluminium: our Blue Tube Evo helps to radically reduce emissions and to drive a circular economy.
The EcoVadis assessment is not just a great benefit for us as a company. By transparently communicating our sustainability performance, our customers can be more certain than ever that they can rely on us to help them meet their high social and environmental standards.
