Stolt Tank Containers achieves EcoVadis Gold for industry-leading sustainability performance

Stolt Tank Containers (STC) has received the prestigious gold rating for sustainability by EcoVadis, recognising its exceptional environmental, safety, social, ethical, and governance practices in 2023.  

The EcoVadis certification assesses a company's adherence to corporate social responsibility principles and the effectiveness of the company’s sustainability management system. The gold rating places STC among the top 5% of all companies evaluated by EcoVadis and within the top 3% within the supply chain industry.  

“Sustainability is at the heart of STC and I’m proud of what we’ve achieved. We’ve made great strides in improving sustainability across our operations and this latest achievement validates that we’re on the right track,” says Hans Augusteijn, President of Stolt Tank Containers. 

The latest gold rating is a step up from STC’s silver status in 2022, with improvements in all EcoVadis sustainability categories: environment, ethics, labour and human rights, and sustainable procurement. The largest improvement was in labour and human rights, highlighting STC’s strong ethical and responsible business practices. 

“The improvements in the labour and human rights category came from our ability to clearly demonstrate our strong safety standards, our efforts to reduce gender inequalities within our workforce, and our focus on supporting our employees’ welfare,” says Ilja Siebert, Global Manager of Sustainability and SHEQ. “We are committed to ensuring safety for people and the environment and to achieving our goals in an ethical manner that supports the success of our employees.”
