Sustainability focus in the single-use bioprocessing industry
SaniSure has a long history of manufacturing innovative and high-quality products for the bioprocessing and biopharmaceutical sectors.
In recent years, sustainability has become of vital importance in the industry, and we have embraced this shift in two new ways. First, by having our company rated for environmental sustainability by EcoVadis, and second by joining the UN Global Compact.
SaniSure obtains EcoVadis Silver Rating
One of the most significant achievements for SaniSure in its corporate governance journey has been the awarding of an EcoVadis Silver medal for sustainability. This recognition places SaniSure in the top 25% of rated companies.
SaniSure’s overall score of 60 places the company ahead of nearly 80% of the biomanufacturing industry. Such a rating illustrates that we are on the right path toward more sustainable practices within our organization and industry.
About EcoVadis Score
EcoVadis is a trusted platform that assesses the environmental and social performance of companies across various industries worldwide. The overall score (0-100) reflects the quality of the company’s sustainability management system at the time of the assessment. EcoVadis sustainability recognition levels are based on the percentile rank of a company’s EcoVadis score and a minimum theme score. To date, the organization has rated over 75,000 trading partners worldwide. The EcoVadis Rating takes into account various criteria across a broad range of non-financial management systems, including Environmental, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement impacts. Each company is rated on the material issues as they pertain to their company’s size, location, and industry.
In our commitment to more sustainable practices in the long term, we have been working on implementing a robust environmental social governance program, as well as increasing our targets regarding the topic. In our next submission, we’ll aim for a higher rating within the EcoVadis scoring system.

Joining the UN Global Compact

Participation in the UN Global Compact signifies that we are committing to work towards implementing such principles throughout our operations and to communicate openly with our stakeholders on our progress.
SaniSure’s decision to join the UN Global Compact reflects a broader acknowledgment within the company that corporate responsibility should go beyond meeting regulatory requirements. By integrating sustainability into our core business strategy, SaniSure contributes to a more sustainable landscape in the bioprocessing industry. By joining this initiative, SaniSure has demonstrated our determination to operate as a responsible and sustainable organization and has begun to incorporate ESG questionnaires and Code of Conduct commitments by our suppliers. The company will publish a description of the ways in which we are supporting the UN Global Compact and its principles in our annual corporate report.
