Third Bridge, a market-leading global investment research firm, has been awarded a Silver Medal from EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. A silver medal places Third Bridge in the top 25% of the 90,000+ companies that EcoVadis rates globally.
Receiving the award, Emmanuel Tahar, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Third Bridge said:
“In today’s world operating sustainably is only getting more important. This award demonstrates our commitment to doing the right thing and putting ESG at the heart of our business. We are delighted to receive this accolade and I want to say thank you to our ESG council for bringing our sustainability strategy to life. We want to lead our industry in measuring our ESG contribution objectively and improving transparency.”
EcoVadis is the global standard for business sustainability ratings. The EcoVadis assessment evaluates 21 sustainability criteria across four core themes: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.
Describing Third Bridge’s ESG plans, Philip Vincent, Global Head of Organisational Design, said:
“We are integrating sustainable business practices into all our big decisions and earning this award gives us a yardstick against which to judge our progress. Our clients want to work with responsible partners, our colleagues want to be part of a sustainable business and the people we’re hiring place a premium on companies that commit to ESG. Over the last couple of years, we have professionalised our ESG approach to everything from hiring, to emissions monitoring, to volunteering and procurement.”
In 2020 ESG became a formally recognised part of Third Bridge’s business culture. Notable achievements to date include signing a pledge for Change the Race Ratio, the creation of our Women at Third Bridge affinity group, signing the UN global Compact for sustainability, and increasing CSR donations by $324,000.
