Why Gold Matters to Sustainability
December 5, 2023
Atlanta – Dematic is proud to announce our shiny new Gold rating from EcoVadis, a leading business sustainability rating index platform.
This recognition follows a comprehensive review of our 2022–2023 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) management system across our global footprint. The assessment focuses on policies, practices and actions specific to environment, social-economic-human rights, ethical governance, and CSR practices in our supply chain.
Our Gold status (up from Silver in 2022) places us within the top 5% of companies globally and is a testament to our ongoing commitment to being the sustainable supplier of choice for our customers.
“At Dematic, we believe it’s crucial to invest in a sustainable future. That investment begins from within by taking to heart CSR measures that matter to our people, planet, and products, and this has been validated by EcoVadis,” says Meraj Anas, Sustainability SteerCo Executive Sponsor and SVP Global Execution and Sustainability. “I’m proud of our team’s accomplishment and commitment to reach even higher with our sights set on a Platinum rating for next year.”

EcoVadis Ratings: Driving Sustainability in the Supply Chain Industry
Sustainability has become a critical consideration for businesses across all industries. Studies show that consumers will pay more for a product that is sustainable, while B2B buyers are more likely to do business with a company with sustainable operations.
In addition to the overall Gold rating for Dematic as a whole, EcoVadis has awarded nearly all our assessed individual locations a Platinum rating, which puts us in the top 1% of companies that EcoVadis reviews. Learn why these ratings matter and their benefits.
