Avery Dennison shortlisted for Label Industry Global Awards 2018

Avery Dennison has been nominated for the Award for Sustainability, one of the key categories of the Label Industry Global Awards 2018.

OEGSTGEEST, the Netherlands July 11, 2018 — Shortlisted as one of three finalists, Avery Dennison received the nomination for its recent introduction of a Sustainability Procurement Program, a collaborative evaluation platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for the company’s global supply chain. The program rates suppliers in four key areas of activity: environmental, fair business, supply chain, and labor practice. The program’s overall objective is to engage suppliers in a continuous improvement process related to sustainability.

To operate this Sustainability Procurement Program, Avery Dennison partnered with EcoVadis, a leading sustainability performance rating solutions provider. The platform delivers simple and reliable scorecards to monitor supplier best practices. A total of 21 internationally recognized sustainability criteria are reviewed and separated into four criteria themes: environment, social, ethics and supply chain.

Renae Kezar, senior director, global sustainability at Avery Dennison said: “The Sustainability Procurement Program helps us to assess compliance and recognise high performing suppliers. In addition, EcoVadis has provided a straightforward method for discussion with our suppliers on topics of social and environmental awareness. It is not only about a “score” but we have dialogue around waste, increasing recycled content, the different certification schemes, and how to work together to improve the industry.”
