In line with its CSR commitment, Gattefossé has received ISO 14001:2015 certification for its main production site in France and has been ranked in the top 1% of the EcoVadis platform by receiving the Platinum medal.
ISO 14001: validation of the Environmental Management System
In October 2021, following two years of effort, Gattefossé obtained the ISO 14001:2015 certification for its main production site in Saint-Priest, near Lyon, in France. The implementation of this Environmental Management System, now certified, aims to continuously improve the company’s performance through a more sustainable use of resources and the reduction of waste. In addition the company is committed to a continuous improvement process in order to maintain this certification for the next few years.
EcoVadis: a recognized CSR performance
Furthermore, in November 2021, the Saint-Priest site was awarded Platinum category by EcoVadis for its CSR performance with a score de 74/100.
This result represents an increase of 4 points compared to 2020. It allows Gattefossé to be among the top 1% of companies evaluated by EcoVadis, on the themes of Environment, Social & Human Rights, Ethics and Responsible Purchasing.
This achievement is the result of concrete actions implemented by the company on priority themes: improving the traceability, sustainability and performance of raw materials, reducing direct and indirect carbon emissions, working on the eco-design of ingredients by reducing the impact of their end-of-life.
Gattefossé also uses EcoVadis to assess the CSR performance of all its suppliers involved in the production of its ingredients. A key tool to encourage and accelerate social and environmental performance throughout the supply chain.
Gatt’Up&Act: a CSR roadmap in constant progress
The main CSR objective for Gattefossé is to combine sustainable growth and general interest in order to lead, with all its sphere of influence, the transition to a business model that combines durability and performance. Today, the company implements its commitments through a roadmap founded around three key pillars:
Preserving our environment: reducing the impact on the climate, preserving resources and being transparent.
Taking care of our people: improving the quality of life at work, the development and safety of each employee.
Acting as a world citizen: guaranteeing ethical relations and committing to the common good around environment and solidarity.
“Environmental, social and societal issues have always been part of the Gattefossé culture. Over the past few years, our CSR approach has been developed and structured so that it is now at the heart of our development strategy. We consider CSR as a growth lever, a source of opportunity and innovation. Through Gatt’Up&Act, we would like to engage all our stakeholders to act in the service of the common good and general interest. I believe in the strength of the collective and that is how we will make a difference," concluded Ségolène Moyrand-Gros, President of the Gattefossé Group.
