Whilst we have always been engaged in this area, we started to formally benchmark ourselves in 2021 when we issued our first Sustainability Report.
We also asked Ecovadis, the leading provider of company sustainability benchmarking to assess our performance. Last year Wittur achieved a bronze rating. I am delighted to say that in 2023 we have achieved a silver rating – which reflects 12 months’ worth of hard work across all of our Wittur sites. It is a fantastic achievement and a real sign of continual improvement, which is evident from the second edition of our Sustainability Report. We continue our journey to create long term value for our customers, suppliers, employees, families and communities”.

The 2022 Sustainability Report collects some of them and further demonstrates our commitment at Group Level”.
