Science-Based Targets 

Orthex’s near-term emissions reduction target is approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The international Science-Based Targets initiative encourages companies to carry out their climate actions in accordance with the emissions reduction targets set out in the Paris Agreement. The Science-Based Targets organisation comprises CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a platform for increasing transparency of carbon related disclosures, the UN Global Compact initiative, the World Resource Institute (WRI), and the environmental organisation WWF. 


Orthex achieved a silver level rating in its first EcoVadis ESG assessment in May 2023. The result places Orthex globally among the top 18 percent of companies assessed by EcoVadis. 

EcoVadis is a globally recognized assessment platform that rates businesses' sustainability based on four key categories: environmental impact, labour, and human rights standards, ethics, and procurement practices. The assessments are evidence-based and are refined into scorecards, providing scores from zero to one hundred (0-100) and, when applicable, medals (bronze, silver, gold). These scorecards also offer guidance on strengths and areas for improvement, which rated companies can use to enhance their sustainability efforts and develop corrective action plans to improve their sustainability performance.
