The silver-medal ranking is given to companies who demonstrate sustainability practices that place them in the top 20% of companies rated by EcoVadis.
Jones Health Group, a medical packaging and dispensing company, announced on Oct. 19, 2021, that they had been awarded the EcoVadis silver-medal ranking. EcoVadis, a global sustainability ratings provider, awards the silver-medal designation to companies who place in the top 20% of companies they rate.
“The healthcare industry has set some really ambitious goals around sustainability and we, as a specialist healthcare packaging company, have an important part to play in delivering them,” said Nic Hunt, chief strategy officer at Jones, in a company press release. “As an evidence-based assessment, the EcoVadis silver-medal rating means our sustainability approach is supported by policies, actions, and outcomes that demonstrate our commitment and progress.”
EcoVadis has rated more than 75,000 companies in 160 companies on various sustainability measures. Commitment to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement are all measured in the overall rating.
“We focus on three key areas where we can make the greatest impact on sustainability:minimizing our consumption to reduce carbon footprints, maximizing circular design in our products and services to support a circular economy, and creating an ethical, diverse and inclusive organization where people thrive,” said Ron Harris, president and CEO of Jones, in the press release. “We’re proud to receive this important designation from EcoVadis – a sustainable future matters to us, our business and our clients.”
