The Seqens CDMO site from Lahr reaches the Gold – EcoVadis level.
The Seqens CDMO team is pleased to announce that its manufacturing site located in Lahr (Germany) has achieved the “Gold” level following the evaluation of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance by EcoVadis.
As a reminder, the EcoVadis evaluation method is based on 21 criteria and 4 themes (Environment, Fair Working Conditions, Business Ethics and Supply Chain). It is based, among others, on international standards of sustainable development, in particular the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO standards (90001, 45001, 14001, …).
An assessment that boosts the site’s commitment
The Lahr plant’s objective was to improve on last year’s score of 58/100 (Silver level) which placed it in the top 14% among the peer companies evaluated by Ecovadis. To achieve this result, Lahr teams organized themselves to create a multidisciplinary team composed of Quality, Safety/Environment/Health, Human Resources, Sales and Purchasing specialists. In a few weeks, the latter, with the support of the Corporate CSR team, was able to carry out a quality work which allowed to obtain a score of 68/100, synonymous with the Gold level, thus positioning Seqens CDMO Lahr in the TOP 4% of its sector of activities, according to the EcoVadis referential.
This “Gold” level is a true recognition of the work and daily commitment of the Lahr teams who have been able to structure themselves to better highlight their CSR good practices in the management processes of their activities.
With this result, now 16 of the 22 Seqens entities evaluated have obtained the “Gold” level or more, placing them in the TOP 5% of EcoVadis referenced companies in their sector of activity. The group and CDMO management join the corporate CSR management in congratulating all the teams of Lahr for this excellent result and wish the 6 remaining entities “to take” the same path in the near future.
