The EcoVadis silver medal testifies to Alltech’s purpose of ‘Working together for a planet of plenty’ and its commitment to prioritising the efficient production of nutritious food, while minimising environmental impact, implementing environmentally and economically sustainable solutions, promoting fair labour practices and fostering ethical business conduct.
Alltech has also earned the EcoVadis platinum medal for its production site in Springfield, Kentucky in the US, which puts it in the top 1 percent of over 200,000 businesses assessed by EcoVadis.
Alltech Coppens – which produces industrial feeds for the aquaculture sector – earned gold-medal status, putting it in the top 7 percent of sustainable companies globally.
Alltech global vice president of ESG Tara McCarthy said: “We are delighted to have received multiple EcoVadis medals as an external endorsement of Alltech’s ongoing commitment to the journey that is sustainability.”
