Impak Retail Holds Silver EcoVadis Ranking

Impak Retail is among the top 25% of sustainable companies holding coveted EcoVadis silver ranking.

Environmental, social, and ethical performance—otherwise known as sustainability—is a crucial factor for success in today’s business landscape. As consumers and investors grow increasingly environmentally conscious, companies are under pressure to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability every step of the way—from labor and raw materials sourcing through manufacturing and packaging.

One way to showcase environmental dedication is through participation in EcoVadis Rankings for Sustainable Packaging. According to EcoVadis, sustainability is not only good for attracting consumers—but good for business, too: improving performance by 15-30%, lowering the cost of capital by 90%, and reducing supply chain costs by 9-16%.

Impak Retail, a renowned player in the custom packaging industry, is happy to share we have achieved the coveted EcoVadis Silver Ranking, signifying our commitment to a continued focus on leading sustainability practices.
