(PRESS RELEASE) AMSTERDAM, 21-Mar-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — EVBox, a leading provider of charging solutions, announces that it has been awarded the gold medal rating on EcoVadis‘ sustainability assessment. This rating acknowledges EVBox’s commitment to powering a sustainable future and recognizes the company’s sustainability efforts in the areas of environment, labor, human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. EVBox scored a total of 73 points and is in the top 1 percent of companies rated by EcoVadis in the “manufacture of other electrical equipment industry” and the top 5 percent of all companies rated by EcoVadis.

The EcoVadis assessment methodology evaluates the impact of companies’ social and environmental affairs in their business operations, beyond compliance standards. EVBox’s double materiality assessment, products made with sustainable materials, and operational carbon footprint contributed to its gold medal rating this year.

Sustainability is a fundamental part of EVBox’s business and continuously guides the company’s decisions and developments. The majority of improvements leading to the gold medal rating were in the environment and ethics categories, demonstrating the joint efforts of different departments and employee commitment to the company’s mission. EVBox integrates ESG risk assessments and sustainability clauses in wider company processes and agreements, such as the partnership with Drake & Farrell and the One Charger Two Lives initiative. The company also provides training and supports employee resource groups activities to ensure a safe and ethical environment for all, as seen in the My Gender My Pride 2022 campaign, which raised 10.000€ for COC Nederland last year.

EVBox’s gold medal rating from EcoVadis is a testament to the company’s ongoing commitment to a sustainable future and its positive impact on society and the environment.

“Sustainability is the driver for our mission at EVBox. To achieve our goals and ensure we have the right impact, we have been taking a critical look within. We are looking at our operations, our people, and our community to measure our positive and negative impacts while setting up mitigation plans. It’s rewarding to see that our efforts are paying off and being validated by credible parties like EcoVadis,” said Madalina Buzdugan, Director, CSR & Sustainability at EVBox.
