Arkay PackagingGRI Core Compliant Report and EcoVadis Submission
3R was hired to conduct stakeholder engagements, set updated goals, and create a GRI Core Compliant report with Arkay Packaging. Creating a GRI Report allowed 3R to work with senior management and Arkay’s Sustainability Committee to determine management processes around updated environmental, social and governance goals, which were influenced by stakeholder engagement responses.
GRI Standards provide a shared understanding between organizations and stakeholders regarding outward impacts. Reporting in accordance with this framework increases a company’s accountability and enhances transparency to stakeholders on their sustainable development contributions. 3R assembled data provided by Arkay and selected GRI standards that were most relative to their mission and vision to structure the report.
The efforts put into the GRI report carried over into Arkay’s EcoVadis submission. EcoVadis is a worldwide trusted provider of business sustainability ratings for global supply chains. The EcoVadis platform allows an organization to assess the environmental, social and ethical risks and efforts associated within its supply chain and business model.
Through close collaboration with the client, Arkay’s 2021 GRI Report was drafted with updated metrics, impactful company narratives, and results from the materiality assessment to meet the framework requirements. Arkay Packaging achieved Gold level recognition on its EcoVadis assessment placing them in the 96th percentile of all companies assessed by EcoVadis in their industry. This was an increase from Arkays previous Silver level recognition.
3R was pleased to work cohesively with Akray and is looking forward to continuing our partnership.
