FinCo has been awarded with the silver medal by EcoVadis

To enable a sustainable future, individuals and (public) organisations have to consider ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) aspects. These three factors are central in measuring a company’s sustainability. To create an insight in our current status regarding ESG, we’ve decided to execute a business sustainability assessment. This assessment has been carried out by the world’s largest and trusted provider, called EcoVadis.

The EcoVadis sustainability assessment methodology is an evaluation of how well a company has integrated the principles of Sustainability/CSR into their business and management system. It is based on seven founding principles. Their methodology is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, The United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000.

The Sustainability illustrates performance across 21 indicators in four themes: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.

After the assessment we have been awarded a silver medal. This means we are among the 15% highest scoring companies in our sector. Looking towards the future, we are developing an ambitious programme to reach platinum in 2026. We never stop improving!
