Whittan Achieves Gold Rating in EcoVadis Sustainability Assessment


As the UK’s leading storage manufacturers, Whittan are committed to keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum and providing sustainable storage solutions for our customers. Therefore, we are pleased to announce our most recent achievement, having been awarded the EcoVadis Gold rating, putting us in the top 5% of all businesses assessed across all industries.

EcoVadis is the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. Backed by a powerful technology platform and a global team of domain experts, EcoVadis’ easy-to-use and actionable sustainability scorecards provide detailed insight into environmental, social and ethical risks across 200+ purchasing categories and 175+ countries.

Businesses on the EcoVadis network are all working with a single methodology to evaluate, collaborate and improve sustainability performance in order to protect their brands, foster transparency and innovation, and accelerate growth. The EcoVadis sustainability assessment is an evaluation of how well a company has integrated the principles of Sustainability/CSR into their business and management system.

Having achieved the Silver rating for 2022, we have been working hard to reach Gold for 2023 and are striving for EcoVadis Premium in 2024.

Andrew Whelan, Contract Control Manager, comments, “Whittan recognises the importance of the transition to a more sustainable and de-carbonised economy and is working to reduce the carbon intensity of our business and our industry, working collaboratively with all parties to improve the environment. We are delighted that EcoVadis has recognised this commitment via our Gold rating.

“For our customers, they recognise that EcoVadis is the leading independent internationally recognised rating body, and as such provides the necessary comfort to them that Whittan is actively working with all stakeholders, customers and the supply chain towards achieving these goals”.

Oliver Vaughan, Chief Financial Officer, adds, “We are extremely proud to have achieved the Gold Rating in the EcoVadis Sustainability Assessment. Whittan can positively contribute to shaping a more efficient and sustainable future economy and elevate sustainability as a key strategic priority.

“We are continuously exploring systematic ways of creating value and positive impact, future-proofing the business and integrating environmental and social considerations throughout our operations. This process has begun with investment in more efficient machinery, promoting hybrid and electric car usage and installation of LED lighting.

“We report on our environmental impact annually and continue to work with all stakeholders to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Here at Whittan, we are constantly looking at new ways to minimise our impact on the planet and strengthen our commitments to sustainability, therefore also helping our customers to do the same through offering sustainable storage solutions for their businesses.
