Knoll Printing and Packaging has received a gold medal from EcoVadis for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) achievements and was recognized as a Global Compact Lead participant for its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact and 10 principles for responsible business.
EcoVadis has ranked Knoll among the top 4% of all companies in its category. The evaluation includes the strengths of the companies actions and policies for environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
Knoll's achievements were recognized in its commitment to the UN Global Compact this year by participating in action platforms on global supply chain and reporting on SDGs as well as adopting a principals-based approach to sustainability. This is Knoll's second year recognized as a Global Compact Lead among 41 global organizations.
Jeremy Cohen, president and CEO of Knoll Packaging, said, "At Knoll, we value metrics in validating sustainable business practices. For this reason, we deeply value EcoVadis and its ability to provide our company and industry benchmarks to achieve. Over the last year, we have seen a tremendous amount of implementation and success with our CSR initiatives, so it is an honor to advance to the Gold ranking. As EcoVadis continues to increase their own standards each year, so do we, and we are thrilled to now be ranked in the top 96th percentile."
Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and executive director of the UN Global Compact, said, “Lead companies represent the highest level of engagement with the UN Global Compact. More than ever before, the world needs businesses of all sizes, like the ones announced as Lead today, that continuously work to improve their sustainability performance and take action to build a better world.”
