MUNICH, 19 December, 2016 – Matica Technologies AG, a worldwide leading vendor for, and manufacturer in, financial and secure ID card issuance systems has been awarded a ‘silver-level’ by global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) ratings organization, EcoVadis, for managing its associated policies.

- Supply chain: environment / labor practices and human rights.
EcoVadis assesses the environmental and social performance of global suppliers across 110 countries and creates scorecards covering 21 CSR indicators and 150 commodities. This allows companies to compare their suppliers’ CSR performance. EcoVadis serves more than 100 global multinationals, including household names such as Axa, Coca Cola Enterprises, Heineken, Johnson & Johnson, Renault-Nissan and Verizon.
“It was a mandatory assessment which we were happy to undertake for our client, Gemalto SA, and we were very pleasantly rewarded with the results,” said Sandro Camilleri, CEO, Matica Technologies Group. “Belonging to the top 30% of CSR performers, as evaluated by EcoVadis, is a huge accolade and I’m proud of our great team who incorporate these considerations into their work.”
