Highest Platinum Rating Received for the second consecutive year in EcoVadis Supplier Survey
AGC received EcoVadis’ highest Platinum supplier rating for the second consecutive year for its Kashima Plant, one of main manufacturing sites for AGC Chemicals located in Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture.
EcoVadis has been providing comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) evaluations through a global-scale cloud platform. EcoVadis assessment covers a wide range of management areas encompassing the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement impact, except for financial aspects. To date, more than 75,000 companies worldwide have undergone EcoVadis assessment.
AGC has had excellent ratings since 2017, when its Chiba Plant in Ichihara City, Chiba Prefecture and Kashima Plant received the Gold rating, which only goes to the top five percent of the applicants.
In the most recent evaluation in April 2021, the Kashima Plant was especially highly rated for its environmental work, resulting in receiving the Platinum rating for the second consecutive year, a rating set in 2020 that goes only to the highest one percent of the companies assessed. The Chiba Plant received the Gold rating in October 2020.
