In April 2020 Ethical Consumer searched the Stada website and Annual Report 2019 for an environmental report or policy.
The Annual Report contained a brief discussion of environmental impacts. It mentioned resource efficiency, water, energy, waste, CO2 emissions and provided figures for energy consumption, scope 1 and scope 2 emissions (for 2017 and 2018). It largely focused on the impacts of key locations. Very little detail was provided and there was no discussion of key issues such as toxic chemicals or the sourcing of raw materials. The company was not considered to have demonstrated a reasonable understanding of its main impacts.
No targets were found. The report had been verified by PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH. It was not completely explicit about what data had been verified but it appeared to cover the whole report.
Overall, Stada received Ethical Consumer's worst rating for Environmental Reporting and lost a whole mark in this category.
