Harrison is a Gold-Rated Business

22nd Aug 2023

We are delighted to share the exciting news that our unwavering commitment to enhancing our business practices and corporate social responsibility management has been recognised with the prestigious Gold EcoVadis Sustainability Rating.     

EcoVadis, a globally recognised sustainability ratings provider, equips businesses with the necessary tools to elevate their sustainability practices and effectively manage corporate social responsibility. Their evaluation criteria cover four fundamental themes, which serve as the pillars of sustainability assessment for businesses:

  • Environment 
  • Ethics 
  • Labour & Human Rights 
  • Sustainable Procurement

After achieving the Bronze rating in 2021 from EcoVadis, we followed the guidance detailed in our report and set out to significantly improve our policies and business practices in each of these four areas in order to achieve a higher rating for 2022. One of our key focuses was to become a carbon reduced operation, which we achieved earlier this year by working with  CarbonQuota.

This year’s report has identified that we are now ranked in the top 3% of companies rated by EcoVadis in our industry. But this achievement is not an endpoint but rather a steppingstone towards a more sustainable future.

We understand the effect that our business can have on the world around us and we care about working hard to minimise that impact as much as possible. Our new Gold Rating is an excellent acknowledgement that the work we are doing to improve is having an impact and serves as encouragement for us to take it even further.

With this latest EcoVadis report in hand, we are determined to continue building upon our corporate social responsibility policies and play a leading role in championing a more sustainable future for our industry.
