Solar Steel, a division of Gonvarri Industries, has received the Gold Medal from Ecovadis, the global standard platform for sustainability management, for its performance in the environment, labor practices and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
This recognition places the subsidiary well above the sector average and reflects the integration of ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) aspects in Gonvarri Industries' strategy, the promotion of sustainability by senior management, and the involvement of all the group's professionals.
Compliance with sustainability objectives in companies has come to occupy a relevant place on the agenda of management teams, and in purchasing teams, this is confirmed by the growth of sustainable purchasing strategies as an element to reinforce resilience and the creation of value through the supply chain. In this sense, the request from our customers to participate in these evaluation platforms has grown substantially in recent years.
The Ecovadis recognition endorses the work carried out by Solar Steel in the ESG field, being a very important competitive advantage at a time when interest in sustainable products and services continues to grow.
