Żabka again with the platinum award in EcoVadis rating!
For the second year in a row, Żabka received the highest platinum award in the EcoVadis rating. Thus, Żabka Polska has maintained its position in the group of 1% of companies in the world, which best integrate ESG factors into their strategies and operations. In this year’s rating, the chain has improved its performance in all areas assessed, receiving a total of as many as 90 points out of a possible 100. This result confirms that the systematic and consistent integration of ESG factors into business processes and decisions brings real benefits and is highly rated by external rating agencies.
EcoVadis is one of the world’s most trusted rating agencies providing sustainability ratings to companies. More than 75,000 companies from over 160 countries, representing some 200 industries, have been verified by EcoVadis so far.
Żabka Polska started EcoVadis certification in 2020. Based on the results obtained in this process, it developed a plan professionalizing the company’s activities, which – thanks to the cooperation and involvement of many departments – it successfully implemented. As a result, Żabka made a leap from bronze to platinum. In this year’s rating, the chain not only maintained a high platinum position but also improved its performance in all four assessed areas (environment; working conditions and employment practices; business ethics; supply chain practices), totaling as much as 90 points out of a possible 100 (last year 80/100). In the area of the environment, Żabka is a leader, with a rating of 100 points out of 100 possible.
The assessment obtained is the result of many actions that Żabka implemented in 2022 under the priorities defined in the Responsibility Strategy. These included continuing the implementation of the Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which Żabka supplemented with a Human Rights Policy, or developing a Biodiversity Policy that integrates the chain’s approach to its operations and the supply chain. At the same time, Żabka communicated transparently about its approach to management, the actions taken and the results achieved, and reported on its achievements following best practices.
