Trivium Packaging, a $2.7B global supplier in infinitely recyclable metal packaging headquartered in the Netherlands, is proud to announce that its business sustainability efforts have been recognized with a Platinum medal, the highest-ranking available, in the 2021 EcoVadis sustainability ratings. EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, awards the Platinum honor to only the top one percent of more than 75,000 participating companies assessed globally, spanning more than 160 countries and 200 industries.
EcoVadis reviews a participating organization’s performance across four judged categories: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. This recognition is given for exemplary work across each of the four pillars spanning environmental impact and workforce health. The coveted Platinum designation, reflects the dedication Trivium Packaging has to sustainability.
Trivium’s CEO, Michael Mapes said, “It is an honor to receive the Platinum rating for Trivium’s sustainability practices.

Earning Platinum recognition strengthens our conviction to continue making progress in sustainable and ethical practices across the entire organization and for all of our stakeholders.”
The EcoVadis rating system scales from Bronze, to Silver, to Gold, and ultimately Platinum – with a Platinum rating recognizing a select few that are leading the way in Environment Social Governance ESG standards. The rating’s criteria are based on international standards, including Global Reporting Initiative, Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, and ISO 26000. Each organization is given a composite score for a combination of each of the four categories: Environment, Ethics, Labor & Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement.
