Amadys has been awarded a gold rating in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking.
Amadys has been awarded the gold medal in the renowned independent sustainability evaluation conducted by EcoVadis. This achievement places the end-to-end system integrator among the top five percent of all industry participants. Amadys intends to maintain its ambitious objectives, including a complete transition to a circular economy in the coming years. It is noteworthy that this is Amadys’ first participation in the EcoVadis audit.
Amadys specializes in end-to-end network solutions for the telecommunications and energy sectors, providing fast, efficient, innovative, and cost-effective ways to bring people and technology together while supporting sustainable and future-proof digital transformation. As a result of its efforts, Amadys has been awarded the Gold medal in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking at Group level for the first time. According to Hein Wilderjans, Amadys’ CEO, sustainability is a crucial aspect of economic development, and the company is committed to a long-term sustainability strategy that adheres to ESG criteria, including environmental, social, and governance issues. Sustainability is central to Amadys’ business activities and is therefore a key factor in its lasting success. The company is particularly pleased with this top placement in the first audit and views the gold medal in the EcoVadis ranking as a success for the entire organisation.
The gold medal in the EcoVadis sustainability ranking is not only an award but also an inspiration for Amadys to continue on this exceptional path consistently.
Sustainability rating along the value chain
The EcoVadis rating considers 21 criteria across the entire value chain, including the four areas of environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. The rating evaluates various indicators based on a scorecard, which includes sustainability goals, implemented activities, certifications, or control measures.
Ambitious ecologically sustainable goals
Amadys has set itself ambitious targets in all four areas of evaluation for the next three to five years: The system integrator has committed to reduce CO2 emissions in direct emissions (company buildings and car fleet) and indirect emissions (purchased electricity, heating and cooling for own use) by 25% by 2025 and 50% by 2030. Furthermore, Amadys aims to employ 100% renewable energy by 2025 and reduce water consumption by 50% by 2030 in comparison to the 2020 baseline (4.5 m3/m). The proportion of recycled waste is to be raised from the current 54 to 70% by 2025. By 2030, the system integrator aspires to accomplish a 20% women’s quota on the Board of Directors. To minimize the CO2 footprint in the short term, Amadys intends to implement sustainable packaging, reduce transportation movements, and establish LCA’s (Life Cycle Analysis).
