Award for exemplary corporate social responsibility

Jon Lawson

CP Pumpen AG has been rewarded with a silver award for its innovative Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) management which resulted out of a rating by the supplier assessment platform EcoVadis SAS.

Innovation and sustainability are prevailing issues for CP. The pump manufacturer focuses, for example, on the development of energy efficient centrifugal pumps. CP’s experts re-engineered, amongst others, the hydraulics of the magnetic driven pumps product line to significantly optimise their efficiency rate and to increase energy efficiency.

For CP, technical innovation is as important as the training and encouragement of junior staff. Their competency is crucial for the company’s continuance as well as for the successful and innovative development of pumps in the future. The internationally active pump manufacturer presents itself as an open and modern company in which people are fostered and operations and development are done sustainably.

“We are proud that we could win such an important award and that our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is so well received. We understand that sustainable CSR measures are decisive for the relationship to our clients, the society and the environment. The assessment shows that we have achieved a lot already. But we strike to develop constantly also in the field of CSR”, commented Thomas Würsch, CEO at CP Pumpen AG.

Environment, labour practices, fair business practices and sustainable procurement – these are the topics which EcoVadis’ analysing system follows for the assessment of companies’ CSR management. The methodology as well as the criteria are conform to the international CSR standards. EcoVadis operates the first collaborative platform providing supplier sustainability ratings for global supply chains. Their clients include more than 120 leading multinationals as Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, BASF and Merck.

CP is now part of the TOP 25% of enterprises that pay special attention to the compliance with CSR principles in their processes.
