Markem-Imaje, global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has earned the EcoVadis Platinum Sustainability Rating.

According to the company, EcoVadis ranks the Markem-Imaje US plant in Keene, New Hampshire, among the top 1% globally in its industry, from over 125,000 companies assessed globally. As Markem-Imaje’s largest site in the Americas, Keene, is home to its Large Character Inkjet (LCIJ) operations as well as manufacturing the company’s Touch Dry inks.

The EcoVadis rating process assesses a company’s sustainability commitments, practices, and performance, and offers a clear roadmap for continuous improvement. This accomplishment comes just one year after receiving the EcoVadis Platinum rating for the company’s French site at Bourg-lès-Valence and three years after Keene first achieved the EcoVadis Gold Sustainability Rating. As said by Markem-Imaje, the Platinum award now places the company two categories above other leading global industrial coding companies underscoring its commitment to continuous development.

Vincent van der Poel, Markem-Imaje president and CEO, commented, ‘We have been working with EcoVadis for many years and all our production sites are regularly evaluated. It is very important for us as this ESG recognition responds to both our customers’ requests and increased public demand for improved performance in environmental impact, labour and human rights, business ethics, and sustainable procurement.

‘As an operating company of Dover Corporation, Markem-Imaje constantly increases its ESG efforts both across its business operations and crucially in the performance and impact of its solutions range.’
