Situ gets EcoVadis silver status as it launches ‘starfish’ programme

Situ has achieved silver status from universal sustainability ratings provider EcoVadis as it launches its new ‘Be More Starfish” ESG programme.

EcoVadis reviews companies across a number of areas that are key to meeting sustainable targets, including the environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement impacts.

Situ’s report from EcoVadis says the company performed well across all areas, but in particular, regarding its environmental practices, highlighting its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the way that Situ educates and trains all its staff on environmental best practices.

Situ Managing Director, Phil Stapleton, said: “We have been working hard for several years to put in place changes across our business that are right for the environment, our people, suppliers, clients, and partners.

“We want to be a genuinely good business and one that is good to do business with. Achieving silver status from such a trusted global assessor as EcoVadis shows that we are moving in the right direction.

“Of course, there is always more to be done – and that’s why we have launched our Be More Starfish programme which has at its heart the premise that everyone needs to do their bit, and small changes can add up to bigger changes.” 

As one small example, last Saturday saw the Situ team carry out a beach clean in Teignmouth, South Devon.
