SACI-CFPA has received the EcoVadis Platinum status for the second consecutive time with a score of 75/100. This status confirms the distributor's commitment and performance in terms of corporate social responsibility (CSR), placing it once again in the top % of companies evaluated by EcoVadis in its field.
Profound climate, social and societal changes call for the mobilization and contribution of all companies. The company, part of the Sumitomo Corporation group, has been striving to be active at its level for several years and is strengthening its commitment to these challenges. This EcoVadis ranking allows it to affirm its efforts and guide it towards improvement in CSR.
SACI-CFPA began its CSR journey in 2008, with an audit and training for all employees focused on sustainability. Since its first submission process with EcoVadis in 2014, it has maintained a Silver status through 2020, with an improvement in its overall ranking from TOP15 % in its category in 2014 to TOP4 % in 2018.
The distributor then defined the pillars of its vision and actions with a clear CSR policy strategy defining the key points, the people responsible and the objectives to be achieved.
In 2021, it will achieve Platinum status for the first time thanks to the structuring of its CSR commitments, the work and efforts of its quality team and all employees. " Being rated Platinum by EcoVadis is an honor and a testament to our successful transition to a model that is more in line with current and future environmental, social and societal concerns We've been working hard to ensure that the company's CSR policy is respected," says Christelle Bonnet, technical director in charge of CSR policy.

EcoVadis allows us to adopt a rational approach to its pillars, which are today a key lever for innovation in ingredients. Being EcoVadis Platinum for a second time reassures our customers and our parent company on the sustainability of our activities. "she says.
