Gestion de l’eau : le bilan mitigé des entreprises européennes

Gestion de l’eau : le bilan mitigé des entreprises européennes | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

En 2015, une seule entreprise européenne, le papetier finlandais Metsa Board, composait le classement des meilleurs élèves en matière de gestion des eaux. En 2016, ils sont 12 Européens (Unilever, Fiat Chrysler ou encore L’Oréal) dans la liste des 25 groupes ayant obtenu la meilleure note.
Moins de la moitié des entreprises européennes (46%) "procèdent à une évaluation complète des risques" liés à l’eau. C’est légèrement mieux qu’en 2015 (+2%) mais cela reste faible.

EcoVadis's insight:

Parmi on retrouve L'Oréal, client à EcoVadis, qui se situe en haut du tableau.
