Ecovadis Platinum 2021

 

EcoVadis Platinum Sustainability Rating

Sustainability encompasses environmental, social, and ethical performance. Down Under Enterprises works with EcoVadis to independently assess our performance in these areas.

This means that our customers with their own sustainability targets can feel confident in working with us.  Our processes are transparent and validated by a trusted third party.

In our second consecutive year of assessment by EcoVadis we have attained a Platinum Sustainability rating.

This places Down Under Enterprises in the top 1 percent of global sustainable businesses audited annually by EcoVadis, over 75,000 companies.

Our Cycle of
Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of our  operations globally. From major initiatives like our R&D optimization programs down to the finest details such as our packaging seals to preserve our oils and prevent product loss, we continually look for new ways to improve our sustainability profile and deliver a premium product to you.

Our ‘Cycle of Sustainability’ illustrates the seasonal cycle of our farming operations and is complemented by the manufacturing processes and controls across our distribution operations to achieve highly specified product quality standards to meet your strictest requirements.

Sustainability runs like a thread through our whole organization

When sustainability is at the heart of your business, it should permeate every aspect of its day-to-day operations and long-term planning.

Our staff are empowered to identify and implement sustainability practices in their respective areas of responsibility.

Sustainability Initiatives

 

United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals

In 2015, the United Nations member states adopted the Sustainable Development Goals as part of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These 17 topics of focused sustainable development initiatives are designed to ‘provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity’ to member nations for their own sustainability initiatives.

While many of these goals are truly targeted at national programs, especially for emerging countries, the UN Sustainable Development Goals offer a common framework. Of these seventeen UN Sustainable Growth Goals, Down Under has chosen eleven of these goals which are directly applicable to us and serve as a framework for the management of our Sustainability program.

In 2019, Down Under Enterprises’ sustainability program was formally recognized when we were accepted by the United Nations as a signatory to the UN Global Compact.
