MECATHERM receives sustainability award

EcoVadis awarded MECATHERM the bronze medal for its sustainable development performance in 2023. The international organization that evaluates companies on their performance, commitments, and practices in terms of sustainable development awarded the French technology specialist the bronze medal.

With an overall score of 50/100*, MECATHERM ranks among the top 50% of the best-performing companies evaluated by EcoVadis in 2023. The criteria audited by the organization covered the company’s overall sustainability approach, based on four fundamental pillars: environment, social & human rights, ethics, and responsible purchasing.

Raymond Nogael, Vice-President of Global Marketing and Business Development at TMG/MECATHERM, comments: “Adopting a strategy in favor of sustainable development, both from a human and environmental point of view, is a key challenge for manufacturers wishing to innovate in the bakery-pastry sector today. At MECATHERM, we are committed to pursuing and accelerating our efforts in areas where we can have a positive impact, with a particular focus on actions supporting energy transition, such as reducing our carbon footprint and that of our customers.”

A sustainable development approach

MECATHERM’s approach to sustainability is to help industrial bakeries more sustainable through three areas of commitment:

  • Area 1: Setting an example of energy transition and the circular economy
  • Area 2: Safety and personal fulfillment
  • Area 3: Asserting our role as an active partner in our customers’ sustainable approaches throughout the value chain

To ensure the effectiveness of its actions, MECATHERM has set up a structured and organized process to prioritize its actions. “We are proud to receive this medal, which testifies to the structuring of our sustainability approach, and we are determined to intensify our efforts and take our sustainable commitments even further.  At MECATHERM, we are actively working to develop our equipment and meet market expectations, while taking social and environmental responsibility into account in our development initiatives,” says Raymond Nogael.

*EcoVadis certification is adapted to the size of the company being assessed and its sector of activity. The analysis and final score are weighted accordingly in a scorecard that presents the company’s strengths and possible areas for improvement. The final overall ESG score ranges from 0 to 100 and is the result of the weighted average of the four themes included in the assessment: environment, ethics, social and human rights, and responsible purchasing.

EcoVadis evaluates companies’ sustainability performance based on a strict validation methodology. Their methodology is based on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, and ISO 26000, covering more than 175 countries. The sustainability scorecard illustrates a company’s performance through 21 indicators divided into four themes: environment, social and human rights, ethics, and responsible purchasing.
