Maha Chemicals is proud to announce that we have been awarded the EcoVadis Silver Rating for our sustainable efforts for the first year! We are in the top 8% of companies rated by the esteemed internationally recognized agency (with a presence in 160 countries globally (EcoVadis, n.d.)), in the chemicals and agrochemical products wholesale industry. EcoVadis assesses organizations based on 4 different sustainability pillars – Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Procurement (EcoVadis, n.d.). Such assessment provides a comprehensive insight into the sustainability theme, especially the business aspect of it, as more than often, one would associate it with just the environmental pillar of sustainability.
