The internationally approved CSR platform EcoVadis evaluated about 75.000 companies in 2020.
With 69 out of 100 possible points, Tropag secured a position among the best three percent of its industrial sector in this year’s rating – and received the EcoVadis gold medal in recognition of this achievement.
For Tropag a double reason for pleasure: After having reached the silver medal in the previous year, the company was able to still increase its achievements. The results of the annual rating are published in detail on Ecovadis' online platform. They can be seen by the customers of the assessed companies, which are also registered with EcoVadis. Many large companies from the chemical sector are members of the EcoVadis network, as they are actively interested in the sustainability performance of their suppliers. A good position in the rating is therefore no nice-to-have, but first and foremost a signal to customers: "We take the issue of sustainability seriously".
We are very pleased that we can welcome the year 2021 with 3 service anniversaries. Our employee Diana Schwanck is looking forward to a 5-year service anniversary in our company. Ms. Schwanck works in accounting and actively supports us there with her expertise. Jens Steenfadt is looking forward to a 10-year service anniversary. He has been working in the area of product management with great commitment and passion since 2011 and is continuously driving this area forward so that TROPAG remains a valuable business partner for our customers in a complex market. Claudia Teske is looking forward to a 15-year service anniversary, who with her level-headed manner resolutely supports the service area, especially the feed area. Among other things, Ms. Teske is also TROPAG's deputy dangerous goods officer. We would like to thank the jubilees for their extraordinary commitment in the past and wish you all the best, both privately and professionally. We look forward to a continued successful cooperation!
We are very pleased that we can celebrate the 20th anniversary of our colleague Nicole Rudolph's service in May. Nicole Rudolph has acquired an enormous amount of specialist knowledge over the past 20 years, which goes far beyond her area of work in our service department. With a lot of commitment, Nicole Rudolph has been taking on the responsible position as a dangerous goods officer in our company for many years and has developed into a highly valued and competent contact person for our customers, suppliers and colleagues. We would like to thank Nicole Rudolph for her extraordinary commitment and wish her all the best, both privately and professionally. We look forward to a continued successful cooperation!
We are very pleased that we were able to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our colleague Petra Lübbers in January. A lot has changed in the past 30 years. All the more we appreciate the extraordinary commitment of Petra Lübbers, who has met the constantly increasing challenges with great care over the past three decades and has thus contributed a lot to the success of our company. Petra Lübbers is a fabulous colleague and highly valued contact person for our customers and business partners. We wish her all the best in her private and professional life and look forward to a continued successful cooperation.
This month we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our colleague Kristina Martins' service.
“Service anniversary” - that sounds a bit out of date. And in fact, such long periods of time at one and the same job hardly correspond to reality for the majority of working people today. However, especially in short-lived times, it is nice to have colleagues who are by your side for a long time.
Kristina Martins also stands for tireless commitment and great reliability. She is always on hand as a competent contact person for our customers and suppliers. She is a fabulous colleague and we wish you health and all the best for your continued work in our company.
Tropag was awarded the Silver Level Rating by the global sustainability rating platform EcoVadis. In the overall rating, we are in the top 6% of the companies assessed by Ecovadis in the wholesale of chemical products, fertilizers, and agrochemical and other products. In the areas of labor & human rights and ethics, the auditors even placed us in the top 4% of our industry. Compared to our last (and first) rating, we were able to increase our rating by around 85%.
This result reflects Tropag's commitment to sustainability and transparency. This gives our customers the confidence that they are protected from the risks of the upstream supply chain and shows our stakeholders that we act on all sustainability issues.
EcoVadis is a collaborative platform that provides sustainability assessments and performance improvement tools for global supply chains.
As part of the EcoVadis methodology, the guidelines and measures of the companies as well as their published reports with regard to the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement are evaluated.
