Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the continuing commitment by businesses to act responsibly by integrating social and environmental concerns into their operations. CSR goes beyond regulatory compliance to focus on how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships with stakeholders.
The EcoVadis methodology is at the core of its CSR analysis system, covering 21 criteria across four themes of Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. The methodology is based on international CSR standards, including the Global Compact Principles, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard, the ISO 26000 standard, and the CERES principles.
“We are thrilled with this recognition as it affirms our CSR commitment and value as a supply chain partner,” said Dennis Bacchetta, director of marketing and founding member of Diamond’s Green Team. “Diamond’s packaging is designed utilizing recyclable or recycled paperboards (many FSC-certified), and manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy, in a Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill (ZMWL) facility.”
Innovations in Sustainable Packaging
Diamond ranked in the top 2% of suppliers assessed by EcoVadis in the category “Manufacture of corrugated paper and paperboard and of containers of paper and paperboard.”
Diamond reported on its greenbox sustainability initiative to research, design, and implement packaging solutions that are innovative and more sustainable. The core of the initiative – designs, materials, and methods – represents a comprehensive approach to packaging that minimizes environmental impact throughout the supply chain.
