Nowy Styl awarded with platinum EcoVadis medal!

Nowy Styl has once again received the highest possible EcoVadis assessment - the Platinum Medal. This high rating is only achieved by 1% of companies from all over the world approaching the certification process. It proves our process management is efficient and we can ensure secure cooperation.

In the face of the climate crisis and the ambitious commitments of the European Union in the area of sustainable development, CSR/ESG issues have become a priority for businesses. Standalone initiatives are no longer sufficient and independent organisations have been tasked with thoroughly assessing companies' activities in this field. 
The rating platform EcoVadis is one of the most trusted auditors. It examines and evaluates companies in detail in the four thematic categories: 
  • human and labour rights
  • environment
  • ethics
  • sustainable procurement
The assessment criteria are based on international sustainability standards such as: 
  • UN Global Compact
  • GRI standards 
  • ISO 26000 standard
More than 45 thousand companies use the services of EcoVadis, including the world's top corporations. The organization operates globally, aiming to substantially transform supply chains around the world. To achieve this, the company combines vast experience with advanced technology and comprehensive service solutions.
The outcome of this assessment is particularly important to us because it showcases Nowy Styl’s path towards sustainable development and our advancement in this area. In 2019, we approached the EcoVadis assessment for the first time and were awarded the Silver Medal. Already in the following year, we reported enormous progress and received the Gold Medal, followed by the Platinum Medal.  Methodology used by EcoVadis not only requires organisations to provide a report on measures they have taken, but also to demonstrate progress in specific areas compared to previous assessments. Considering how challenging the past years have been, marked by the pandemic, the war and various crises, we have shown that sustainable development is deeply ingrained in what we do and, despite the challenges in other areas, we have not stopped on our path of progressa
