ArcelorMittal is awarded the Gold Recognition Level based on its EcoVadis sustainability rating, which places the Company as a reference supplier within the railway sector.
Ecovadis is the first independent collaboration platform that evaluates the quality of the CSR management system of railway industry suppliers. Framed in the international initiative “Railsponsible”, the objective is to facilitate the integration of sustainability criteria in the relationships between customers and suppliers. Railsponsible – using the Ecovadis platform – looks at company performance across 21 criteria under four themes: environment, labour practices, fair business practices and sustainable procurement, not only using suppliers’ submitted answers and materials, but also publicly available information and news.
The methodology is built on internationally standards, including the United Nations Global Compact, ISO 26000 and the GRI-Global Reporting Initiative.
