LUCAS receives Bronze Medal from EcoVadis

LUCAS is proud to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious Bronze Medal by EcoVadis. This recognition demonstrates LUCAS’ ongoing commitment to sustainable practices and places it among the best performers of all the companies assessed by EcoVadis.

The bronze medal, while gratifying, is a catalyst for LUCAS to go further. This award is a starting point, with several areas for improvement identified by the EcoVadis assessment. As part of a proactive approach, LUCAS is already looking into these areas of improvement to strengthen its positive impact on the environment and society.

“In addition to this initial assessment, LUCAS is keen to make a greater commitment to sustainable development and this assessment gives a clear picture of the areas in which we can continue to improve.”

Stronger environmental commitment

LUCAS has placed sustainable development at the heart of its concerns, with concrete actions in the environmental field. Reducing internal waste is a priority, with initiatives to reuse, recover and recycle materials. The company also uses waste heat recovery systems and cogeneration units to optimise its energy balance.

Social responsibility and human rights

In the area of social and human rights, LUCAS stands out by conducting equipment safety inspections and audits to ensure the protection of its employees. The company also promotes flexible working arrangements, including remote working and flexible working hours, as well as training to develop the skills of its employees.

LUCAS is committed to promoting inclusion by implementing specific measures in favour of employees with disabilities. A career and individual development plan has been introduced for all employees, demonstrating the special attention paid to their professional fulfilment.

2024 targets

The announcement of the bronze medal demonstrates the significant progress made by LUCAS, but the company has no intention of stopping there. Its ambitious goal for 2024 is to achieve the EcoVadis Silver Medal, which would further strengthen its position as one of the world’s most sustainable companies.

EcoVadis, which assesses more than 100,000 companies worldwide, plays a crucial role in promoting environmental, social and ethical standards. By aligning itself with these criteria, LUCAS is demonstrating its commitment to a sustainable and responsible future.
