Telent has maintained its Silver sustainability rating from EcoVadis, placing the company in the top 25% of assessed organisations.
Telent has been recognised with the rating for a second year running for its sustainability management and performance. It follows the company’s commitment to net zero emissions through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
As well as publishing annual sustainability reports, Telent has pledged commitment to the SBTi, which involves the company’s climate targets being validated in line with a net-zero carbon reduction trajectory.
EcoVadis is a leading, trusted provider of global business sustainability ratings to assess the performance of supply chains. This accredited benchmarking process is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000.
“The result demonstrates Telent’s continued investment in creating social, economic and environmental value through our business, giving all of our stakeholders confidence that our goals and targets are not approached lightly. Our commitment to having a positive social impact through our work and reducing our environmental footprint as an organisation is a fundamental part of our business success”, said Rhys Griffiths, Responsible Procurement & Sustainability Manager at Telent.
Backed by a powerful technology platform and a global team of CSR experts, EcoVadis sustainability scorecards provide detailed insight into environmental, social and ethical performance across 200 industries. It benchmarks performance across four linked themes: ‘Environment’, ‘Labour & Human Rights’, ‘Ethics’, and ‘Sustainable Procurement’.
The process required Telent to submit a range of detailed evidence from across the business for independent assessment.
“Not only is this superb recognition for our teams, but will help us to continually enhance our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance in the future as we aim for a Gold award”, added Rhys.
