LLBG’s sustainability progress recognized by silver EcoVadis medal

Time to celebrate a milestone in our sustainability journey: LLBG has been awarded with a silver EcoVadis medal! This improved sustainability rating is a well-deserved recognition for our sustainability efforts of the past year, underscoring our dedication to contribute to a healthier planet through ethical business operations.

With an overall score of 65/100, we are now in the 86th percentile, meaning that we are positioned in the top 14% of companies rated by EcoVadis in the food manufacturing industry.

Our sustainability performance has been rated by EcoVadis since 2021, with significant progress along the journey, jumping from a bronze to a silver medal compared to 2022. The improvement in our EcoVadis score comes from the adoption of new sustainability policies and measures (with the implementation of our supplier code of conduct being an important achievement in 2023) and from the improved transparency in our annual sustainability reporting.

Let’s aim for gold in 2024!

EcoVadis is the world’s largest provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 100,000+ rated companies. EcoVadis evaluates companies across four categories: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. LLBG achieved very good results in all four categories, particularly in Labour & Human Rights and Sustainable Procurement.

“We’re thrilled to share our upgraded EcoVadis rating after this year’s EcoVadis assessment, with a silver medal as cherry on the cake. It's a testament to the hard work of all our departments and our unwavering commitment to make a positive environmental impact. Sustainability is one of LLBG’s strategic priorities and it has been a conscious choice to embed sustainability in our organization from the start. This improved EcoVadis score objectively shows that we are moving in the right direction.”
