It’s pleasing to know that we’re still leading the way in our industry,” says Anita Eckardt, Chairman of Implenia’s Sustainability Committee. “More and more public and private sector customers place value on a good EcoVadis rating when awarding projects. Because of our standards, our health and safety processes and our Code of Conduct, we once again scored particularly highly in the environmental and the labour and human rights categories. We improved our score for ethics thanks to a strong internal awareness of compliance issues and detailed, transparent reporting.”
