Freefoam Building Products Ltd was recently assessed by EcoVadis, a recognised sustainability rating platform. Freefoam has not only retained the Silver medal, its sustainable business practices have been rated as better than 91% of companies assessed across the world in 2024.

EcoVadis is an evidence-based assessment that audits a company’s sustainability management system. It rates the maturity of your policies, commitments, actions, reporting and certifications across four key themes (Environment, Ethics, Labor and Human Rights, and Sustainable Procurement).

Freefoam, manufacturer of fascias, soffits, rainwater systems and external cladding, exceeded the average industry score across all assessment themes. Freefoam’s overall performance improved by 13%, moving from ‘Good’ to ‘Advanced’.

“Our new assessment is even more impressive because the criteria for the Silver EcoVadis rating was recently adjusted, so it’s much more challenging to achieve now,” explains Kevin Cronin, chief operating officer at Freefoam, and part of its sustainability team. “Previously, the top 25% of companies assessed were awarded Silver medals – now, you have to be in the top 15%. But Freefoam’s sustainability practices comfortably meet even these new requirements.”

Freefoam’s approach to sustainability (‘Building a Sustainable Future’) is rooted in the principles of the Circular Economy, carbon reduction, continuous improvement, good governance – and a focus on people. When it comes to the Circular Economy, the company priorities the re-use and circulation of resources, retaining economic value, and eliminating waste – focusing on its own business and its supply chain.

“At Freefoam,” adds Kevin, “we have found EcoVadis a simple and effective way to communicate our sustainability commitments and performance to our value chain partners.”
