With a score of 73/100 in four areas (environment, social and human rights, ethics and responsible procurement), SILAB, which has had Gold certification for four consecutive years, has this year climbed up into the top 1% of the companies awarded the best ratings by EcoVadis, with the Platinum medal. Xavier Gaillard, Managing Director for Strategy at SILAB, says:
Our independence gives us the strategic autonomy necessary to express innovation at every level of activity, while integrating nature in each stage of our product development. We do everything we can to define sustainable strategies appropriate to environmental and biodiversity protection. We are proud and delighted to receive this distinction today, the result of an active commitment by all our staff, who are strongly involved in this eco-attitude.
The company massively invests to promote water and energy savings, while implementing a very strict zero waste policy. In the same way, SILAB takes care of the wellbeing and the fulfilment of its staff, a particular focus that is demonstrated at various levels: personalized welcome of new employees, commitment to gender equality, actions by the health and safety team, continuous staff training, and so on. One of the notable initiatives carried out in 2019 was the involvement of the staff in environmental action, like participating to World Clean-up Day for example. All the company's actions are detailed in a report. Published every year, this document sets out SILAB’s main sustainable achievements in terms of innovation and strategy, supply, environmental protection, social policy and sharing of values.
