Azelis joins Together for Sustainability
This membership follows on Azelis’ membership to UN Global Compact and Gold rating from EcoVadis ans is – according to Azelis – testifying to company’s resolute course of action to be catalyst of change when it comes to sustainable business models. Azelis is now part of the global network of 25 TfS member companies who represent a global turnover in the chemical industry of EUR 422 billion.
Improving the sustainability performance
The TfS framework – TfS Assessments and TfS Audits – allows TfS member companies to assess the environmental, labor & human rights, ethical and sustainable procurement performance of their suppliers and drive and deliver tangible, measurable improvements of their suppliers’ as well as their own sustainability performance.
Dr. Hans Joachim Müller, Azelis CEO, comments: “Our dedication to CSR and sustainable business models has been at the core of our business decisions for a while now. That dedication has been recognised twice by EcoVadis’ Gold rating so joining TfS was a next logical step for us. The TfS concept benefits both TfS member companies and suppliers, taking away bureaucratic burden from us so that time and energy can be spent on the improvement of sustainability performance. As a global business, with operations across EMEA, the Americas and Asia Pacific, Azelis takes its responsibilities very seriously, always looking for new ways to make a positive impact on society and minimise its footprint, whilst delivering the best possible products and services.”
