We have long been dedicated to reducing our environmental impact. We’ve made sustainability and ethical business practices a strategic focus for 2023 and beyond, and are delighted to have achieved another significant milestone. After receiving ISO 14001 accreditation in March, we’ve now received a gold sustainability rating from EcoVadis, scoring in the top 5% of all companies assessed. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainable practices.
Who are EcoVadis?
EcoVadis is a trusted global provider of business sustainability ratings, having worked with a network of over 100,000 companies to improve and evaluate sustainable business practices. They assess companies based on their environmental, social, and ethical performance across various categories, including environmental impact, labour practices, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement.
What progress have we made?
To reduce our environmental impact, we have implemented several environmentally friendly initiatives to minimise our impact on the planet. These include carbon offsetting, energy-efficient lighting, partnering with ecolegIT, a Ride2Work scheme as well having an internal sustainability committee. Due to our efforts, we have been certified carbon neutral for two years running. Recognising the importance of social responsibility, we have also taken steps to support local communities and charities, and promote employee wellbeing by offering mental health days and a healthcare plan. Beyond these practices, EcoVadis also praised our extensive policies on sustainability and ethical issues.
Why does an EcoVadis rating matter?
Achieving a gold sustainability rating from EcoVadis brings numerous benefits to Icon and to our global network or clients and partners. With ISO 14001 and EcoVadis accreditations, clients can be confident that the service we provide is not only top quality but sustainable and ethical too.
Looking ahead, we have set goals to further enhance our sustainable practices and look forward to achieving them. Ultimately, we aim to drive positive change within the relocation industry and inspire others to follow suit.
