Kymera International, a speciality materials company headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, has been presented an EcoVadis Silver award, meaning the company has ranked in the top 25% of sustainable organisations according to EcoVadis.

“Kymera is committed to ESG and this tremendous accomplishment is proof that even in a challenging manufacturing environment, sustainability is possible. Well done team,” stated Barton White, CEO of Kymera International.

EcoVadis provides a platform through which companies can have their sustainability performance independently assessed. Customers can access this evaluation and then take it into account in their purchasing decisions. In recent years, the EcoVadis platform has developed into an international standard, with global supply chains, financial institutions and public organisations using the organisation to monitor and improve the sustainability performance of business and trading partners.

The EcoVadis Rating covers a broad range of non-financial management systems including Environmental, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement impacts. Each company is rated on the material issues as they pertain to their company’s size, location, and industry.

These evidence-based assessments are refined into scorecards, providing zero to one hundred (0-100) scores, and medals (bronze, silver, gold), when applicable. Additionally, the scorecards provide guidance on strengths and improvement areas, which Kymera has stated that it intends to use to continue making improvements across all our sites globally.

“The EcoVadis Silver award is a testament to the culture at Kymera. We are driving continuous improvement in our environmental and social impact as well as governance, just as we drive continuous improvement in our operational or financial results. We are proud of our achievements to date and excited for the future improvements we have planned,” said Michael O’Laughlin, COO of Kymera. “As a global organisation with operations in North America, Europe and Asia, we are extremely proud of this achievement as it shows that all Kymera Locations hold a very high standard of ESG performance.”
