Internationally recognized ratings platform to assess corporate social responsibility EcoVadis has awarded its platinum rating to German steel maker Saarstahl’s sustainability strategy. Saarstahl has thus achieved the highest possible rating, putting it among the top 1 percent of companies assessed in its industry category. The EcoVadis rating confirms the high quality of sustainability management at Saarstahl. Responsible operation and sustainable business management have long been firmly embedded in the corporate policy of the steel-producing company. The EcoVadis rating is performed annually. Saarstahl had already successfully positioned itself in previous years as a company that operates sustainably and responsibly. In the current assessment, Saarstahl surpassed its gold medal from 2021 and thus earned the platinum medal with 75 points. The rating is valid until May 2023. The EcoVadis assessment is based on a defined scorecard. This scorecard also incorporates the criteria of the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the International Organization for Standardization for the issues of “Environment”, “Labor and Human Rights”, “Ethics” and “Sustainability in Procurement”. The definition of specific evaluation criteria enables worldwide comparison of the companies certified by EcoVadis.
