Saint-Viance, France - May 28, 2019
Just a few weeks after receiving the A- rating from the CDP for its action to combat climate change, SILAB has once again been praised for its exemplary corporate social responsibility, obtaining Gold CSR certification from the EcoVadis rating platform.

With a score of 69/100 in four areas (environment, social and human rights, ethics and responsible supply), SILAB is among the top 5% of companies in the EcoVadis rankings for the fourth consecutive year. Xavier Gaillard, deputy general manager for strategy at SILAB, gladly welcomes this rating: “This Gold certification is recognition of SILAB’s CSR policies and actions, an area in which we have been actively involved for many years. We firmly believe that our performance is fully linked to the social, environmental and societal commitments we carry out every day. This systematic harmonization between actions and values has led to dynamic, yet controlled, economic growth. We are very honored to receive this new award and to share it with all our staff”.

Every year, SILAB draws up a report, available on its website, highlighting its main sustainable achievements in terms of innovation and strategy, supply, respect for the environment, social policy and sharing of values. The exemplary initiatives taken in 2018 include significant investments to reduce and optimize the company’s energy use. As a responsible employer, SILAB also pays particular attention to staff development. Training has a prominent place, with investments of around 7% of the gross payroll.

SILAB therefore plans to keep growing placing sustainable development and innovation at the core of its commitments.
