– Śnieżka’s high performance, apart from the Sustainable Development Strategy announced this year, was also influenced by our activities in measuring the carbon footprint. Activities in the area of procurement turned out to be equally important, including: implementation of the Supplier Code of Conduct and supplier self-assessment. EcoVadis expects continuous improvement from companies, which denotes that maintaining our position in the ranking will require us to take further actions in the area of sustainable development, which is our objective for years to come – concluded the President of Śnieżka.
EcoVadis assessment criteria are based on international sustainable development standards, including: GRI guidelines for reporting sustainable development for companies, the ISO 26000 standard and the UN Global Compact principles. The platform not only assesses the operational activities of companies in terms of sustainable development, but also conducts activities to reduce risk and support innovation.
