Konecranes receives first gold rating from EcoVadis

AdobeStock 19686119Konecranes has received a gold rating from EcoVadis for its sustainability work, its highest-ever placing 

The company is in the top 4% of all rated companies globally, and it is in the top 1% of its general-purpose machinery peers.

Konecranes’ rating improved from 2020 thanks to the implementation of additional policies, increased transparency and additional certifications, business sustainability rating provider EcoVadis said and declared the company’s overall sustainability performance to be on an advanced level in activities related to the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.

Since the 2020 survey, Konecranes has committed to set science-based climate targets, its digital services received information security certification (ISO 27001), it started third-party supplier sustainability audits and it reported on its human rights risks and ways to mitigate them. 

Konecranes has five sustainability cornerstones: Climate action and resource efficiency; eco-optimised offering and circularity; a safe workplace and products; a diverse, inclusive and engaging workplace; and responsible business conduct.

Konecranes president and CEO, Rob Smith, commented, “Sustainability is at the core of our business. We strive to make a positive impact on society and the environment, and are making excellent progress on a number of fronts: EcoVadis gold follows the CDP climate change performance leadership rating we received last year, and we plan to publish our science-based carbon reduction targets by end of the 2021. We will not stop in our drive to improve our performance even further.”
