GlobalLogic nurtures a culture built on the tenets of sustainability: Environment, Social Capital, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Additionally, the role of digital engineering is rapidly evolving to help organizations make digital experiences sustainable, equitable, and inclusive. Software technology will power next-generation solutions that will create new business opportunities while creating greater good for the planet and humanity. To that end, EcoVadis is one important step in codifying GlobalLogic’s position and practices in sustainability.
“As a trusted partner to many of the world’s leading companies, we’re part of their ecosystem. By extension, their ambitious sustainability goals for their products and services become ours as well,” said Joshua Abramson, GlobalLogic’s Head of Sustainability. “The EcoVadis Silver rating is an important milestone in our consistent effort to perform sustainable work that benefits our clients and society. We’ll continue to implement practices that reinforce these objectives.”
Since GlobalLogic’s acquisition by Hitachi Ltd., the company has joined one of the most mature sustainability initiatives among global corporations. Hitachi considers UN-established Sustainable Development Goals crucial to realizing a sustainable society and improving people's quality of life.

EPPA : New Study Shows That Making Reusable Containers for Takeaway Obligatory Will Undermine the EU’s Environmental Goals27.6.2022 06:00:00 CEST | Press release
Obligatory reusable packaging in takeaway services would be more burdensome for the environment than continuing to use single-use paper-based packaging. This is the conclusion of a new meta-study assessment, commissioned by the European Paper Packaging Alliance and carried out by renowned engineering consultancy, Ramboll. As the European Commission prepares to propose a revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) with potentially far-reaching implications, the analysis, which examined 26 scientific studies, shows that reuse systems impose exclusive additional burdens to the environment when compared to single-use, related to additional washing, take-back transportation and breakage / unit loss associated with takeaway. The results show that Climate Change is by far the most affected impact category when implementing reuse in take-away services, and that reusable tableware can also have a significant impact on water use. Commenting on the meta-study assessment, Eric L
