Americhem, a US-based global masterbatch manufacturer that specialises in custom colour and additive masterbatch solutions, has been awarded the Bronze EcoVadis medal. This result places Americhem among the top 50 per cent of companies assessed by EcoVadis. This prestigious award is presented to companies who achieve a high level of global sustainability.
EcoVadis is a company that provides holistic sustainability ratings of companies. The EcoVadis Rating covers a broad range of non-financial management systems including environmental, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement impacts.
“I am so proud of what Americhem has been able to achieve on a global level in terms of sustainability. We won’t be stopping here though; all of our teams across the globe continue striving to take these efforts even further this year,” Matthew Hellstern, Americhem’s chief executive officer, said in a press release.
Americhem has made a major step forward in their sustainability efforts not just with their recent Bronze EcoVadis medal, but in September of 2020 with their acquisition of Controlled Polymers in Ribe, Denmark. Controlled Polymers is on their way to the greenest compounds in the world as they strive for sustainability in everything they do through responsible sourcing, customer workshops for greener solutions, extensive R&D and sustainable know-how, and responsible production. Controlled Polymers’ production is based on 100 per cent wind energy and the use of biofuel as well as performing waste management in order to recycle as much as possible.
