Śnieżka’s debut in EcoVadis was rated gold

Fabryka Farb i Lakierów Śnieżka SA was assessed for its activities in the area of sustainable development by EcoVadis - the world's largest provider of business sustainability ratings. As a result of an independent assessment, Śnieżka was awarded the EcoVadis Gold Medal, which places it among the top 5% of certified companies.

Companies are assessed by EcoVadis based on dozens of indicators in four categories: human and labour rights, environment, ethics and sustainable procurement, and each answer is subject to verification.  Śnieżka, making its debut in the ranking, obtained a total score of 70 out of 100 points. Such a high score places it among the best in the industry, for which the average is 47 points.

This is our first assessment, which is why we particularly take pride in such a successful debut and the gold medal awarded by EcoVadis. It also proves that owing to Śnieżka's Sustainable Development Strategy 2023+, we have given our ESG activities the right direction. By achieving the set goals, not only do we confirm that we are a liable company, but we also provide benefits to the environment and our customers.
