Ecolean rewarded for sustainability work

Swedish converter Ecolean has been awarded the Gold Medal Recognition 2020 from sustainability ratings provider EvoVadis. The latter’s rankings placed Ecolean in the top 5 per cent of 60,000 companies assessed from 155 countries.

Ecolean’s score is based on the company’s sustainability efforts in the areas of renewable energy and climate impact and social aspects, as well as reporting of sustainability data associated with its packaging and filling machines.
