October 20th, 2021 / By: / Industry News

The German specialty viscose fiber manufacturer Kelheim Fibres has been awarded gold in the CSR rating by EcoVadis, scoring among the top 3 percent of all companies evaluated.

The rating was above average in all four individual areas (environment, labor and human rights, ethics, sustainable procurement), but Kelheim Fibres achieved absolute top scores in the environment area in particular.

In addition to the excellent EcoVadis rating, Kelheim Fibres is also the first viscose fiber producer worldwide with a certified EMAS environmental management system and ranked highly in the Canadian NGO Canopy’s “Hot Button Report” for sustainable wood and pulp sourcing.

Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network of more than 75,000 rated companies.
