Radnor, PA-based Avantor recently achieved a Bronze Medal from EcoVadis, placing it in the top 50% of companies assessed by EcoVadis.

“Receiving a Bronze Medal from EcoVadis sends a strong message to our customers and suppliers that Avantor takes sustainability seriously,” said Rachel Kaufman, Senior Director of Global Sustainability at Avantor. “Our team has worked hard to reach this milestone, and we’ll continue to deliver on important environmental, social, and governance measures through our ‘Science for Goodness’ sustainability platform.”

In the first half of 2023, Avantor launched its Responsible Supplier Program, became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, and committed to setting near-term emissions reduction targets in line with climate science in support of the Science Based Targets initiative.

Avantor’s ‘Science for Goodness’ sustainability platform serves as a lever to help bring the company’s mission – to set science in motion to create a better world – to life. It is based on four pillars: People & Culture, Innovation & Environment, Community Engagement, and Governance & Integrity. These focus areas provide the framework for creating long-term value for all of Avantor’s stakeholders, from associates, to customers, to suppliers, to shareholders, and to the communities where we operate and live.
