Beckers is a privately-owned, global industrial coatings company with Swedish roots, providing products and services across many manufacturing sectors. The company employs 1,800 people and its operations currently span five continents in 19 countries and 24 sites.
Beckers Group was awarded a Gold rating by EcoVadis for the second consecutive year.
This certification, awarded by an independent third-party organization, recognizes companies for their outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility performance. The Gold Standard, the highest rating offered by EcoVadis, places Beckers Group in the top five percent of companies EcoVadis assessed globally in the category “Manufacture of paints, varnishes and similar coatings”.
In October 2018, an internal cross-functional team conducted a global assessment of Beckers’ CSR performance, looking closely at four core fields: Environment, Ethics, Labour Practices & Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement.
“Not only have we retained the gold rating at Group level, but we have also increased our overall score from 63 in 2017 to 65 in 2018,” said Nicklas Augustsson, global sustainability director at Beckers. “This result is a reflection of our focus and efforts in implementing robust ethical practices, while continuously improving on the three other themes.”
