BDA Secures Gold Sustainability Rating from EcoVadis
Bensussen Deutsch & Associates LLC (BDA), Woodinville, WA, announced their North American operations have received a gold-level rating from EcoVadis, a leading sustainability ratings provider. A gold rating is the second-highest level of achievement that an organization can receive, and recognizes BDA’s ongoing efforts in corporate social responsibility (CSR). This complements BDA’s European operation’s platinum EcoVadis rating, awarded last October.
EcoVadis partners with more than 100,000 companies in more than 175 countries and 200 industries each year to collaborate on sustainability with a common platform, universal scorecard, benchmarks, and performance improvement tools. Using innovative technology and sustainability expertise, companies are graded on a variety of criteria, including environmental factors, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. BDA has earned an advanced score in each of the respective categories, placing the company in the 94th percentile, or top 6% of the companies assessed.
“I’m so proud of the entire team at BDA for prioritizing a better tomorrow and earning this gold-level rating from EcoVadis," said BDA CEO and co-founder Jay Deutsch. "We begin every engagement with our clients by asking, 'What will have the greatest impact on our client’s objectives and do no harm to the environment?' Since our early days, doing the right thing for our clients, the planet, and all the people involved in making and transporting the products we provide has been a key priority. Over a decade ago, BDA was the founding member of the industry’s first distributor advocacy group to ensure promotional product companies were focusing on both product safety and the long-term health of the of the earth, not just short-term profits for their companies. I appreciate the acknowledgment of by EcoVadis and the significant work of their organization.”
The gold ranking further reinforces BDA’s commitment to progressing sustainability efforts, including adherence to comprehensive environmental and business ethics procedures, commitment to employee health and wellness, and the company’s first annual ESG report, which will be published in the coming months.
