( BOLLORE) - For the second year in a row, Bolloré Logistics has received the "Platinum" award from EcoVadis with an overall score of 80/100 for the work done by the Business Unit. The advanced "Platinum" level is awarded to companies in the top 1% of performers on CSR issues. On average, companies in the same sector of activity are rated 45/100.
Having already assessed more than 100,000 companies from a wide range of industries in more than 175 countries, EcoVadis has a comprehensive and detailed assessment process. This rating enables companies to position themselves with regard to their CSR performance and offers a comparative analysis which helps them achieve continuous improvement. It is steered by a scientific committee together with CSR and supply chain experts to ensure independent and reliable assessments. This score recognises the strong momentum behind Bolloré Logistics' CSR strategy, formalised in the "Powering Sustainable Logistics" programme launched in 2018. Addressing ethical, social and environmental issues of the company’s value chain, the programme mobilises all Bolloré Logistics employees and specifically targets eight of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
"This year we have once again proved our commitment to CSR. The steady rise in our EcoVadis rating demonstrates Bolloré Logistics' ambition to be a reference in the transport and logistics sector in terms of integrating sustainable development issues, in both their social and environmental aspects. This recognition rewards the efforts made by all our employees worldwide; it also demonstrates Bolloré Logistics' ability to integrate the supply chain's stakeholders into its climate strategy, so that together we can work towards greater carbon efficiency,” Odile Maarek, CSR Director of Bolloré Logistics
Bolloré Logistics asserts its ambition and accelerates its action plans throughout its network on a daily basis. Environmental performance is a key element in the development of its service offering, with solutions such as AirSAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel), SEAalternative, and the growth in alternative road transport technologies in many countries.
