Endress+Hauser improves sustainability rating

June 30, 2021

Endress+Hauser reported May 27 that it's achieved 76 out of 100 points in the international EcoVadis sustainability rating, which was four more points than the previous year. The company achieved a ranking in the top group for the fifth year in a row in 2021 and is now among the top 1% of companies compared.

Endress+Hauser achieved further improvements in the areas of environment and sustainable procurement. In terms of ethics, labor and human rights, the company maintained its very good position in the benchmark comparison. As a result, Endress+Hauser entered the top group in terms of results and now achieves a platinum medal after the gold standard—the highest performance level of the EcoVadis audit.

EcoVadis uses 21 criteria from the environmental, social and ethical fields to evaluate companies worldwide in terms of their sustainability. In addition to a sector comparison, companies receive suggestions for improvement. They can also rate their own suppliers accordingly on an Internet platform. To date, around 75,000 companies worldwide have been certified by EcoVadis.

“Comprehensive responsibility is a core value of our corporate culture. As a family business, we want to combine economic success with ecological and social progress,” says Matthias Altendorf, CEO at Endress+Hauser. 

Since 2014, Endress+Hauser produced a sustainability report with its annual report, which relates ecological, social and economic factors. Endress+Hauser’s products and services help users in the process industries to use resources efficiently, reduce pollutant emissions, avoid waste and protect the environment. Plus, the company is also continuously improving its own ecological footprint. For example, Endress+Hauser increasingly supplies buildings and infrastructure with sustainably generated energy, and video conferencing reduces travel.
