The Akomex Group has been rewarded with a brown medal by EcoVadis – a leading global rating agency, dealing with assessment of enterprises’ activities and practices from the perspective of corporate social responsibility and ecological involvement.
The Akomex Group received the brown medal from EcoVadis as a result of assessment made in 4 fields: environmental, social, ethical and in the field of a supply chain.
The certificates such as EcoVadis will become a significant element of the process of selecting contracting parties in the future, in the context of growing expectations of stakeholders towards taking into account by companies the responsibility for their impact on the natural and social environments. The authentic and supported by facts proceeding in the spirit of “sustainability” has a chance of coming into being as an important factor of the competitive advantage in the market.
– Receipt of the EcoVadis sustainable development certificate at the brown level is a confirmation of our beliefs and efforts. It is also a beginning of the path along which the Akomex Group wants to follow in the future. In particular, looking from the perspective of the good of next generations, at present there is no alternative to business actions taking into consideration the protection and reasonable management of our planet’s resources – explains Grzegorz Łajca, a President of the Akomex Group.
