Polygon UK achieves 100% Achilles accreditation for third consecutive year, along with the coveted Green Company status.

When you’re looking for a key business partner, what are the vital elements that you look for to start that long lasting and trusted business relationship?

  • Health & Safety
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Environmental Credibility
  • Quality

Polygon UK received 100% scores across all four of these sectors during a recent audit. Along with achieving 100% in all sectors, Polygon was also delighted to have been awarded the Green Company status for the third year running. This establishes Polygon’s ongoing commitment to sustainability across the business, as the Green Company status is the highest award that can be received from Achilles.

Achilles is a supply chain audit standard focused on providing insight on risk mitigation, sustainability and business performance and is relied on by critical industries and governments worldwide.

Achieving the highest scores from Achilles supports Polygon UK’s 'Our Responsibility' initiative, which encompasses the duty of care the company and colleagues exercise throughout the business. This further recognition increases Polygon UK’s visibility within the Achilles UVDB community; as these specialist businesses across the country now have the opportunity to work with Polygon to collaborate, develop, innovate and address industry challenges to benefit supply chain practice. These businesses can have full confidence that they are dealing with one of the most outstanding companies in the UK. 

Pat Neal, Polygon UK’s HR Director comments:

We are absolutely delighted to have achieved Green Company status for the third consecutive year, along with 100% scores for all sectors. Our business is committed to continually improving in all areas. Many thanks to the entire Polygon UK & Ireland team, as this achievement is testament to the hard work and commitment delivered by all colleagues. Our people and the environment are right at the core of our business. If we add this to our Investors in People Platinum status, it shows that Polygon is a business you can work with in real confidence, knowing we align with the values that many businesses are striving to achieve and maintain

Jeremy Sykes, Polygon UK’s Managing Director also commented:

It is very pleasing to see this endorsement from Achilles, who audit to a very detailed level and demand evidence to back up any claims made by a business.  These outstanding results, for a further year, demonstrate the quality and excellence of our people as well as the integrity and depth of our approach to our business and customers, ranging as they do from safety critical to infrastructure and residential.  Excellent job the whole team - thank you!
