Bollé Safety is proud to announce that its European division has been awarded a prestigious EcoVadis sustainability Gold Medal accreditation. This recognition places the company amongst the Top five percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis in more than 175 countries worldwide, and underscores Bollé Safety’s dedication to sustainability and responsible business practices.

Part of the Bollé Brands group, Bollé Safety is the leading global brand in the PPE eyewear market with over 14 million wearers including construction and industrial workers across a number of sectors as well as first responders, military personnel, healthcare professionals, office workers and shooting enthusiasts across the world.

EcoVadis is a globally recognised and independent sustainability assessment platform that evaluates companies’ environmental, social, and ethical performance. Achieving this accreditation demonstrates Bollé Safety’s exceptional efforts in sustainability across various areas, including environmental impact reduction, ethical business conduct, and social responsibility.

“We are delighted to receive the EcoVadis Gold Medal accreditation, which acknowledges the collective commitment of our team to sustainability,” said Peter Smith, CEO of Bollé Brands Group and President of Bollé Safety. “At Bollé Safety, sustainability is woven into the fabric of our organization – looking to deliver on our trademark combination for performance, fit and comfort through an increasingly future-focussed and sustainable lens. This accreditation is a testament to our dedication to making a positive impact and a significant step for many more exciting announcements to come,” Smith added.

The EcoVadis Gold Medal accreditation adds to a growing list of sustainability initiatives and achievements from Bollé Safety and the wider Bollé Brands group, which launched an innovative new ESG strategy in early 2023.

“We are a company that has a long heritage and we are very aware of our responsibility to future generations. Our commitment to sustainability is a signpost of our dedication to building a more sustainable and equitable future for all those we interact with and make an impact on, and this EcoVadis Gold Medal is a huge milestone for our European team, signalling that we are going in the right direction,” said Quentin Chapelain, ESG Manager at Bollé Brands and Bollé Safety. “With an always future-focussed approach, we are very excited to continue growing and evolving in our sustainability journey as we push for the next level across all areas of our business,” added Chapelain.

The new strategy underscores important commitments by the group such as reducing carbon emissions of each of its products by 35 percent by 2027, guaranteeing 100 percen of packaging will be eco-friendly by 2025, and ensuring 90 percent of its product ranges are eco-designed by 2027.
