It’s the second year PECO has been awarded an EcoVadis Silver rating. In comparison to other similar businesses, PECO improved its standing, rising to the top 74th percentile of Silver-rated companies.
PECO’s culture and management focus emphasizes a strong commitment to Environmental, Social and Governmental initiatives, which support PECO suppliers and customers in achieving their sustainability goals, and provides a positive, motivating workplace environment for employees, noted Joe Dagnese, PECO’s chief executive officer.
“We are very pleased and proud to have once again achieved an EcoVadis Silver rating,” Dagnese said. “This is a testament to our culture of sustainability, and through the commitment and focus of our employees, demonstrating how being a good steward of the environment also is an inclusive, complementary element of being a successful, enduring business.”
