EcoVadis rating: Our CSR and sustainability commitment stands out.

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) have long played an important role at our company. Our commitment in these areas has now been awarded a silver medal by EcoVadis. Ratings such as the EcoVadis assessment help create transparency about the environmental and social aspects of a company's economic activities. However, the internal impact is also very important: Where do we stand on the relevant KPIs relating to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement? What is already going well and where is there room for improvement?

Who or what is EcoVadis?

EcoVadis is one of the world's largest providers of corporate sustainability ratings. The EcoVadis methodology is based on international sustainability standards and frameworks. A team of analysts assesses how well a company has integrated the principles of sustainability and CSR into its business and management systems. The EcoVadis assessment takes place on the basis of an industry-specific classification and therefore offers the opportunity to compare with competitors using industry-specific indicators.

Our EcoVadis rating: Overall result

The EcoVadis assessment covers a wide range of criteria from the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. GETEC ENERGIE achieved a silver medal with 61 out of 100 points, which is well above the average for all companies in the energy industry that were evaluated by EcoVadis. We scored particularly well in the areas of the environment and labor and human rights with our wide range of measures. We also scored above average in the ethics category. We can still improve in the area of sustainable procurement.

Our EcoVadis rating: Environment category

In the particularly heavily weighted environmental area, EcoVadis evaluates all policies, measures and results in the categories of energy consumption and greenhouse gases, water, biodiversity, local and accidental pollution, raw materials, and chemicals and waste. Our efforts with regard to our detailed environmental policy, our support for customers in their sustainable energy procurement, the conversion of our fleet to electric vehicles, our ISO-certified environmental management system, and our measures to mitigate negative impacts on the environment or animals were highlighted particularly positively.

Our EcoVadis rating: Labor and human rights category

The labor and human rights category is also weighted particularly heavily by EcoVadis. Here, all policies, measures, and results in the areas of employee health and safety, working conditions, social dialogue, career management and training, child and forced labor, human trafficking, diversity, discrimination and harassment, and human rights of external stakeholders are examined. GETEC ENERGIE performed particularly well in this area. In its assessment, EcoVadis particularly highlighted our measures in the areas of employee health and safety, anti-discrimination, special payments and leave for all employees.

Our EcoVadis rating: Ethics category

We also received an above-average rating in the area of ethics. We were able to convince the auditors with our policies and measures relating to compliance, anti-corruption, data protection, information security and our whistleblowing procedures, which have been tried and tested for many years. EcoVadis evaluates all policies, measures and results in the categories of corruption, anti-competitive practices and responsible information management in the ethics category.

Our EcoVadis rating: Sustainable procurement category

In the area of sustainable procurement, which is relatively weakly weighted for the energy industry, EcoVadis evaluates all policies, measures and results with regard to environmental practices and social practices of suppliers. Here, our guideline on sustainable procurement in particular was rated positively. Since GETEC ENERGIE, as a mere service company, almost exclusively procures items for daily office use, we have not yet placed a major focus on optimizing this area. However, we are working on designing our everyday office life with products that have been manufactured as sustainably as possible.
