Masterpack and EcoVadis: a sustainable ‘now’

Posted on 19 May 2021

A sustainable future starts with what you do today. With that in mind, Masterpack embarked on a mission that started in 2019. We wanted to improve our sustainability score. Today, let’s see how far we’ve come.

Who is EcoVadis?

EcoVadis is the world's most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. They provide intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. On their platform, we can assess our environmental and social performance as well as those of our suppliers. 

In 2014 we did our first assessment with EcoVadis, and we came out with bronze. We saw that many companies in our sector bear this quality mark, so we could not stay behind. After all, sustainability should be a group effort. 

Silver score in sustainability

As a company we are assessed on various facets such as: Labor and Human Rights, Environment, Business Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. With the help of our sustainability partner NEXIO PROJECTS we have completed the assessment for 2021 with a silver rating. 

But we’re not stopping there. We are currently working for 2022 to achieve at least a gold rating. 

Nexio Projects provides us with a clear overview of what we have to provide in terms of documentation and what that will do with the score. This not only concerns our HQ, but also all our production locations.

What does the future hold? 

We have big plans for that. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:

  • In 2021, we plan on introducing the first ever liner with all the needed barriers, but without aluminium. This liner will be fully recyclable.
  • In 2023, we want to have migrated all our customers to using these liners
  • In 2022, we want to obtain the EcoVadis Gold status or higher
  • Our HQ is going CO2 neutral. We have put 290 solar panels on our roof, so we won’t use, but rather produce energy.
