Small and Medium Enterprises: How Suppliers Engage with Sustainability

July 27, 2017

The CEOs of two medium-sized companies using EcoVadis as suppliers - Cafiver, a coffee producer in Mexico and Chinese chemical company Honhok - open up about how their sustainability engagement and how EcoVadis is helping them.

“The complexity with working with small producers in this field is that coffee business is a family business, and as such it might involve child labor. We work to make them understand that children need to be involved in others activities such as school.” -Alejandro Lázzeri - Managing Director, CAFIVER

“EcoVadis helped us put our Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality system in order … we removed duplicate and inefficient documentation from our processes, reducing costs” -Zhenwei Guo - General Manager, HONHOK
