For the fourth consecutive year, La Palette Rouge LPR Group, Europe’s leading pallet pooling specialist, has increased its EcoVadis rating, a CSR score awarded by Europe’s leading provider of supplier sustainability. LPR now has ‘Advanced Gold’ status, putting it among the top 1% of the companies audited.
This latest recognition from EcoVadis follows LPR achieving Gold status in 2016, the first pallet pooling company to achieve this rating. The development means that LPR has increased its ranking each year, growing from Silver to Advanced Gold in just four years.
To achieve this ranking, LPR was audited across 21 criteria, grouped into four main categories – environment, labour practices, business ethics and sustainable procurement.
Steps taken by LPR to meet these criteria include sponsoring an agreement in support of reforestation and developing a set of personnel materials to fight against corruption and fraud.
Adrian Fleming, regional director for LPR UK and Ireland, said: “Four consecutive years of continued improvement in our EcoVadis rating is a fantastic testament to the entire LPR Group team.
“This ongoing success demonstrates the power of collaborative working, with LPR UK working closely with our European counterparts to help shore up sustainability and commitment to first-rate CSR standards across the business.”
