A journey of continuous improvement

In our fourth year of evaluation by the EcoVadis sustainability platform, we have reached the pinnacle of recognition with the Platinum Medal. Our journey began in 2020, during the height of the pandemic, when we were first evaluated and awarded the Silver Medal for our good practices in sustainability. This year, we have surpassed our previous accomplishments, solidifying our position as a leader in sustainable practices.

Commitment to excellence

Vytrus Biotech has distinguished itself in addressing environmental and ethical issues, earning the Platinum Medal for our significant achievements in sustainability. This global recognition guarantees high quality, ethics, and business honesty for our partners and clients.

Albert Jané, CEO, COO, and co-founder of Vytrus Biotech, stated, “This recognition is the result of the constant work carried out by the Vytrus team. ESG and sustainability have been part of our company’s DNA since our origins. We are grateful and proud that this commitment is recognized and places us at the top of sustainability alongside major corporations worldwide.”

The EcoVadis method

EcoVadis, the leading universal provider of sustainability ratings, evaluates the sustainability practices of over 75,000 companies in more than 160 countries. It offers a comprehensive set of performance improvement tools, indicators, certificates, and awards, including the esteemed EcoVadis medals, to enhance the environmental and social impact of companies worldwide.

The EcoVadis evaluation methodology covers seven management indicators based on 21 sustainability criteria, focusing on four key areas: environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. This methodology is rooted in major sustainability standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the UN Global Compact, and ISO 26000, and is supervised by an international scientific committee. Performance is rated through a detailed assessment of a company’s policies, actions, and results, supplemented by input from third-party professionals and external stakeholders.
