In the current evaluation, Dillinger was able to further improve on its good result from the previous year, and, with 68 points, is among the top three percent of companies in the industry category. The assessment is valid until December 2022.

Transformation process

“We are conscious of our responsibility as a company toward our employees, our customers and our business partners as well as the environment. The gold rating for Dillinger validates our actions and long-time commitment to sustainability for current and future generations,” said Dr. Karl-Ulrich Köhler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Dillinger. “Particularly in view of the transformation process the steel industry is undergoing, these values are forward-looking and of central importance to our business success.”

International criteria

The EcoVadis rating is based on a defined scorecard. This includes the criteria of the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and the International Organization for Standardization for the areas of environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
