Sustainability is defined by the United Nations as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
As a company with over 3,000 employees, located in more than 28 countries, serving various customers all around the world, every choice we make, matters.

Our vision is directly linked with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve a better sustainable future for all.
The SDGs explicitly call on all businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to solving sustainable development challenges.
We do this in many ways, including through external auditors such as Sedex and Ecovadis.
The Bourg-les-Valence manufacturing location in France has been awarded the Ecovadis Gold medal, ranking the site in the top 5% of all companies assessed, benching it in the top 1% of the industry overall.
We are aiming just as high for our other manufacturing sites globally.
Following in the footsteps of the Markem-Imaje Valence, France location, who in 2020 received the EcoVadis Gold Medal for the second year in a row, in March 2021, Markem-Imaje US, Keene, achieved the Ecovadis Gold rating demonstrating our continued strong commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
This recognition is a tribute to our dedicated teams who integrate sustainability into our everyday operations and business model.
