WE DO ... WHAT WE SAY! IN 2019, NOVAE COMMITED ITSELF TO A CERTIFICATION PROCESS. JULY 2020: NOVAE ECOVADIS CERTIFIED AND 3X ISO!
Novae began a triple ISO* certification process in 2019 which was due to take place at the end of March in 2020. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, auditors were unable to access the establishments to carry out their checks. Novae, therefore, was forced to postpone the procedure until June.
Christian Volmerange, CEO of Novae: “Despite many difficulties, we kept our commitments and I am very proud of the teams. They stepped up despite difficult conditions and got right back to work wearing masks, practiced safe distancing, adapted to new work habits and –thanks to their commitment, passion, and know-how — we successfully achieved triple certification! I wasn’t looking to change our habits but to confirm our qualities. The concept of continuous improvement already instilled in us by our own standards makes our work all the more interesting: setting goals, implementing action plans, monitoring and measuring results, putting corrective measures in place and starting over … ”
The SGS Auditors emphasized the teams’ passion for their work and the transparency of our operating methods. They were impressed by the quality of Novae’s services and the mastery of operational processes.
“They also told us that they had eaten very well. This is the main thing, along with the recognition of our requirements regarding quality, proximity to supply, and our commitment to sustainability! » adds Christian Volmerange.
Nicole Habs, Director of Customer Loyalty and Development and Deputy Director of Novae: “I consider triple certification and the Ecovadis medal as enormous assets. They also prove that what we’ve been doing for years is the right thing!”
Ecovadis certification is known for its neutrality, global coverage, and reputation for validating the efforts of companies with real CSR programs.
By evaluating fields related to the environment, ethics, labor and human rights, as well as sustainable procurement, it provides a common improvement dynamic and a benchmark for companies in the same sector – acting as a catalyst and requires constant reassessment!
With a score of 63/100, Novae is among the top 10% of the best students in its sector and earns a silver medal!
