PACCOR AWARDED FOR ITS CSR’S ACHIEVEMENTS

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

PACCOR France has been awarded a silver medal in recognition of Corporate Social Responsibility efforts and accomplishments! The company has been assessed by EcoVadis as one of the top 7% enterprises in the manufacturing of plastic products industry, globally.

PACCOR, as a socially responsible company and a signatory of the New Plastic Global Commitment agreement, focuses on the production of plastics in the so-called green cycle – recycling packaging process, switching to disposable products for reusable packaging and the production of plastic using post-consumer materials. But Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) doesn’t apply to the production process. This is the continuing commitment to act responsibly by integrating social and environmental concerns into business operations. CSR goes beyond regulatory compliance to focus on how companies manage their economic, social and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships with stakeholders (e.g. employees, trading partners, government).

To demonstrate PACCOR’s commitment towards CSR and its vital role in the company’s DNA and strategy, not only in the field of production but also environmental and social areas, the company has undergone an assessment by the company EcoVadis, which examines CSR standards in companies around the world. After many tests and the verification of implementation of the highest CSR requirements in practice, EcoVadis awarded PACCOR France with a silver medal. The company has been recognized as one of the top 7% enterprises in the manufacturing of plastic products industry, globally.

EcoVadis assessments focus on 21 issues which are based upon international CSR standards such as the Global Compact Principles, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard, the ISO 26000 standard and the CERES principles.

The assessing company provides the leading solutions for monitoring sustainability in global supply chains. Using innovative technology and CSR expertise, the company strives to engage enterprises and help them adopt sustainable practices. Enterprises with an EcoVadis Scorecard avoid audit fatigue by sharing one assessment with all requesting customers or partners.
