ALD AUTOMOTIVE CSR STRATEGY REWARDED BY MORE ECOVADIS GOLD RATINGS

ALD Automotive, a leading global actor in mobility solutions, has been recognized by EcoVadis for the quality of its commitments and CSR performance, both nationally and internationally. For the 4th consecutive year, the ALD Automotive Group was rewarded a "Gold" distinction as a result of the annual evaluation of EcoVadis, a reference rating agency for CSR performance. With an increase of 4 points, the Group's assessment ranks ALD Automotive in the Top 5% of companies distinguished by Ecovadis. The Group’s approach is based on strong and consistent local commitments: in the last six months alone, six local entities have been granted Gold status (Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Spain, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom), bringing the number of Gold or Silver certified subsidiaries to 18.

This recognition of ALD's leadership confirms the company's performance in its corporate social responsibility actions and reflects its strong willingness to position itself as a key player of the energy transition in the mobility landscape in all the countries where it operates. 

EcoVadis assessed ALD Automotive's sustainable development performance according to 21 criteria and four categories: the environment, social and human rights, ethics, and responsible purchasing practices. These methods and criteria comply with all major international CSR standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the UN Global Compact and ISO 26000 certification.

All these awards, attributed to the group and its subsidiaries, are concrete proof of our commitment regarding social responsibility. The mobility sector has a strong impact, and therefore a particular responsibility when it comes to climate change, which is why we place significant emphasis on the development of sustainable mobility solutions. However, it is extremely important to have a global and practical approach towards all 4 dimensions evaluated by Ecovadis. It is our responsibility to all the company's stakeholders, internally or externally.” explained Stéphane Rénie, ALD’s CSR Director.
