Celebrating Sustainable Milestones: Rotom Group and goplasticpallets.com Empowering Greener Supply Chains With Ecovadis Silver Certification

In a commendable step towards sustainable business practices, the Rotom Group has recently been awarded the prestigious EcoVadis Silver Certification. This globally recognised achievement highlights the group’s dedication to environmental, social, and ethical sustainability.

Since its acquisition by Rotom Group in August 2023, goplasticpallets.com has continued to be at the forefront of promoting greener supply chains. For many years, sustainability has been embedded across every aspect of the business, demonstrated by the launch of its pioneering recycling scheme in 2019 – and, to date, the company has recycled over 1,500 tonnes of plastic. In addition, 93% of the plastic pallets it supplies are made from 100% recycled materials.

This recent certification further solidifies both Rotom and goplasticpallets.com’s shared mission towards a circular economy.

Gerwin Bukkems, Chief Sustainability Officer and Group Procurement Director of Rotom Group, said: “This is a big achievement for the entire team, not only augmenting Rotom’s footprint but also enabling us to contribute to our customers’ circular solutions – the so-called Rotom Handprint.”

The certification is a testament to the entire group’s holistic sustainability programme, launched in late 2022. With a focus on circular solutions, environmental improvements, sustainable procurement, and social responsibility, Rotom Group is setting new standards in the industry.

Commenting on the news, Jim Hardisty, the Managing Director of goplasticpallets.com, added: “We are delighted to see the strides Rotom Group has made in sustainability, culminating in the well-deserved EcoVadis Silver Certification. This aligns perfectly with our vision of developing greener supply chains, whilst emphasising our joint commitment to a circular economy. As leaders in our respective fields, we understand the critical role we play in setting an example for sustainable practices in the logistics sector. This certification is not just a milestone but a stepping stone towards even more impactful, responsible operations in the future.”

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 of more than 125,000+ rated companies.
