Hilti has recently received EcoVadis’ gold rating for the third consecutive year, in which the sustainability rating agency acknowledged Hilti as a "leader in carbon management” and as a “company with a best-in-class greenhouse gas management system and strong ambitions for decarbonisation”. The company was also recognised for its commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions.
EcoVadis is a provider of business sustainability ratings, including more than 100,000 companies in its assessment. The Ecovadis rating covers a wide range of ESG topics, including environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement. With the gold rating, Hilti stands in the top 5%.
The basis for this gold rating is Hilti’s commitment to the ‘Science Based Targets’ initiative. In this initiative companies worldwide commit to significantly reduce their carbon footprint by 2030 and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Additionally, EcoVadis recognised Hilti’s improvements in the core areas of environment and business ethics compared to the previous year's rating. Specifically, the high level of data transparency on the life cycle of Hilti products was emphasised.
"We aim to be our customers’ best partner for sustainability," says Jahangir Doongaji, CEO of the Hilti Group. “This year’s rating encourages us to further drive our ambitions. Besides our goal to become more sustainable ourselves, our differentiated product and service offering helps our customers to reach their own ambitions in this area."
