GW Batterien GmbH, the competence center for rail vehicle batteries within the TRIATHLON Group, has been awarded the silver medal in the certification process by the renowned independent agency EcoVadis, which focuses on compliance with sustainability standards. GW Batterien achieved 66 out of a possible 100 points in the EcoVadis Sustainability Rating, ranking us among the top 25% of the companies evaluated.
EcoVadis uses the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating system to determine how successfully and reliably companies integrate the principles of sustainability/CSR into their business and management systems. For this purpose, 21 CSR criteria are evaluated in the four subject areas: environment, social affairs, ethics and sustainable procurement. In the industry category Manufacturing of Batteries and Accumulators, GW Batteries even achieved a ranking in the top 6% of the assessed companies, thus further strengthening our strong market position also with regard to the topic complex of sustainability.
As experts for rail vehicle batteries and stationary battery systems, we know the importance of a viable CSR or sustainability management system and the deep embedding of the relevant subjects in the business and management system. We are therefore delighted to receive this award and recognition of our efforts to develop products that contribute to a sustainable future and to set up and establish processes that support this goal. We will continue to work with great commitment to confirm and further expand our achievements in this area.
