Gericke operates production and engineering facilities at various locations around the world. To prove the consistent quality and the commitment to business ethics and sustainability, various Gericke group companies are certified to meet ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and SMETA standards. The Gericke Group has also received the sustainability bronze medal award from EcoVadis.

ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System

ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system that can also be certified. It maps out a framework that a company or organization must follow to set up an effective environmental management system.

Designed for any type of organization, it can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impacts are being measured and improved.

EcoVadis

Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has grown to become the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, creating a global network for more than 90,000+ rated companies. Today, many large companies rely on a rating from EcoVadis to have their performance in the areas of Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement evaluated in a comparable manner.

The Gericke Group has received the Bronze Award from EcoVadis – thus Gericke has achieved more points than 50 % of the companies evaluated by EcoVadis in the same industry.

Nevertheless, Gericke works hard to become even better in all areas of sustainability.

SMETA 4 Pillars

SMETA from Sedex is a standard driven by many multinational companies. It uses a social auditing methodology, enabling businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand the working conditions in their supply chain.

A social audit is one of the best ways to understand the working conditions at a supplier site. An auditor physically visits the site – or workplace – of a business, enabling the auditor to assess the conditions on the ground. Social audits enable businesses to assess their suppliers, monitor health and safety for workers and signal zero tolerance of human rights abuses such as child and forced labor.
