Making An Impact: GES Earns Bronze Medal for Sustainability Performance

EcoVadis Bronze Award 2024

Environmental sustainability is a GES core value. Sustainability measures and continuous improvement processes permeate every facet of our organization and enhance project execution for our clients. GES recently completed a comprehensive evaluation of our sustainability practices with EcoVadis and earned a Bronze medal, which places us among the top 35% of companies assessed. GES’ strengths included process optimization, employee training and development, health and safety, information security, ethics, and procurement policies. This is a big accomplishment for GES! 

What is EcoVadis?

EcoVadis is the global standard for business sustainability ratings. The EcoVadis rating validates our sustainability commitments, practices and performance, and offers a clear road map for continuous improvement. 
EcoVadis’ business sustainability ratings are based on international sustainability standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the ISO 26000 standard. The ratings provide an evidenced-based analysis on performance and an actionable road map for continuous improvement. 

What does the EcoVadis assessment entail?

The assessment includes 21 sustainability criteria across four core themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. Organizations must provide evidence against each of the indicators set out by EcoVadis. The company has rated over 85,000 companies globally. 
Continuous and effective management of sustainability practices is critical to our business and society. Thank you to all who participated in this important initiative. This is a great milestone for our company and an important aspect of our ongoing work to be more sustainable to the clients we serve and the communities we live and work in.
