Freefoam in top 9% of companies rated for sustainability by EcoVadis

  • 5 Jun 2024

Freefoam Building Products Ltd was recently assessed by EcoVadis, a globally recognised sustainability rating platform. Freefoam has not only retained the prestigious Silver medal, its sustainable business practices have been rated as better than 91% of companies assessed across the world in 2024. 

EcoVadis is an evidence-based assessment that audits a company’s sustainability management system. It rates the maturity of your policies, commitments, actions, reporting and certifications across four key themes (Environment, Ethics, Labour and Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement).

Freefoam, a leading manufacturer of fascias, soffits, rainwater systems and external cladding, exceeded the average industry score across all assessment themes. Freefoam’s overall performance improved by 13%, moving from ‘Good’ to ‘Advanced’.

Kevin Cronin, Chief Operating Officer at Freefoam, and part of its Sustainability Team (pictured above), comments: “Our new assessment is even more impressive because the criteria for the Silver EcoVadis rating was recently adjusted, so it’s much more challenging to achieve now.

“Previously, the top 25% of companies assessed were awarded Silver medals – now, you have to be in the top 15%. But Freefoam’s sustainability practices comfortably meet even these new requirements.”

Freefoam’s approach to sustainability (‘Building a Sustainable Future’) is rooted in the principles of the Circular Economy, carbon reduction, continuous improvement, good governance – and a focus on people.

When it comes to the Circular Economy, the company priorities the re-use and circulation of resources, retaining economic value, and eliminating waste – focusing on its own business and its supply chain.

Kevin continues: “At Freefoam, we have found EcoVadis a simple and effective way to communicate our sustainability commitments and performance to our value chain partners.”
