A big step towards sustainability

Unger Germany GmbH takes seriously its responsibility for the environment and the society in which it operates. Now the manufacturer has again been recognised for its efforts: the independent rating agency EcoVadis has awarded Unger its silver sustainability certificate.

Jochen Wagener, vice president of marketing at Unger, said: “We strive continuously to contribute to sustainable business practices, social commitment and a more responsible use of natural resources. Our whole team is extremely proud of the silver certificate from EcoVadis, as it shows recognition of our efforts.”

EcoVadis is one of the world’s largest sustainability rating agencies, working with over 65,000 companies from more than 200 industries and 160 countries worldwide. The agency applies procedures which help companies to better manage and communicate their sustainability performance in very clear, trackable ways. As part of the process, it uses a rating system to illustrate the extent to which companies have succeeded in integrating their sustainability principles and goals into their business processes.

“Our improvement from bronze to silver shows that our efforts are bearing fruit,” continued Jochen Wagener. “That said, it’s just a milestone. We are not resting on our laurels - we are going to keep challenging ourselves to keep improving and becoming more sustainable.”
