We are very proud to announce that Ultratank, a leading chemical bulk operator in the Americas, has been awarded the silver EcoVadis medal 2023 for our sustainable business standards. EcoVadis is the largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings with 100,000+ rated companies in 175+ countries. The EcoVadis medals are an acknowledgement of achievements within the four sustainability domains; environment, ethics, labour & human rights, and sustainable procurement rated relative to other assessed companies across EcoVadis’ worldwide database. We believe that all organisations can improve their business standards and performance, and the EcoVadis medal programme indicates business areas in need of positive improvement and areas of current success.

Achieving the silver medal positions us in the top 25% of all the rated organisations – and our score even revealed that we were only 3% away from the gold medal category.

Juan Carlos Perez Ferreti, CEO of Ultratank explains:

“This achievement materialises Ultratank’s continued efforts to improve the sustainability of our operations. We are very proud of the accomplishment of the silver medal award in alignment with Ultranav’s sustainability strategy towards zero-emissions.”

Achieving the silver EcoVadis medal is a proud acknowledgement of our work and efforts in the sustainable areas as well as a great motivation to continue our improvements and maintaining our high ethical business standards. As a cornerstone of our decarbonisation strategy, we will continue to focus on energy efficiency, and on employees’ wellbeing, training, and awareness. All these initiatives are an extension of our aspiration to be a partner you can trust.
