Sidetrade and its distinguished CSR commitment

Sidetrade, the global leader in AI-powered Order-to-Cash applications, proudly announces it has been rated Gold by EthiFinance and Silver by EcoVadis. This dual recognition underscores the company's commitment to ethical business practices and sustainable operations.

For the first time, Sidetrade has achieved a Gold medal by EthiFinance, the rating agency for European listed SMEs, for its extra-financial performance. For 2022, Sidetrade secured an impressive score of 76/100, marking a clear improvement up from 65/100 the previous year. Notably Sidetrade’s environmental score saw the biggest jump with a 43-point increase, whilst achieving a near perfect score in the social category with 93/100.

Sidetrade has also secured a Silver medal for the 2023 sustainability rating by EcoVadis, the world's most trusted business sustainability ratings. With an overall score of 68/100, Sidetrade achieved its best rating to date, registering a significant 15-point increase on 2022. The company improved its social and ethics score by 20 points, and its environmental score by 10 points. This performance places Sidetrade in the 91st percentile of companies assessed by EcoVadis in terms of environmental, social and ethical performance.

Philippe Gangneux, CFO and CSR Ambassador at Sidetrade commented: "These ratings by EthiFinance and EcoVadis are a remarkable recognition of our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). By encouraging teams at all levels and across all functions, we cultivate a firm commitment to minimizing our environmental impact. We are determined to work for positive change, both within our company and beyond.”

Since 2021, Sidetrade’s social and environmental commitment has been recognized through ESG assessments by Ecovadis and EthiFinance. Having previously been ranked Silver by EthiFinance and Bronze medal by EcoVadis in 2021, Sidetrade has embarked on a journey of progress to achieve advanced ratings by both rating agencies.
