Peter-Service receives EcoVadis certification

At the end of November, Peter-Service received certification from EcoVadis, an international rating platform providing a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s management system in terms of its CSR (corporate and social responsibility) performance. The experts conducted an audit of Peter-Service’s documentation to measure the company’s performance in the areas of environment, labor practices, fair business practices and sustainable procurement.

Following the assessment, Peter-Service was awarded a bronze rating in recognition of its CSR efforts. The company scored especially high on working conditions, internal audit practices, customer data protection, confidentiality, counterparty risk and environmental policies.

“Over 30,000 companies, including Verizon, Telefonica, Alcatel-Lucent and other industry leaders, have been rated by EcoVadis on their CSR performance worldwide. Being one of them will help us develop our business relationships with large telecom corporations and strengthen our position in the global marketplace,” said Aleksandr Donskoy, Director for CIS and Other Foreign Markets at Peter-Service.
