EcoVadis validates Encore’s business sustainability commitments and performance

SCHILLER PARK, IL May 7, 2024 – Encore announced today it received a bronze medal from EcoVadis, the
world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. Awarded during Earth Week, this medal
applies to all Encore global operations, including international subsidiaries and Hargrove from Encore.

Encore earned a place in the top 11% of companies rated by EcoVadis in the Conventions & Tradeshows
sector and in the 83rd percentile of 125,000 companies rated globally.

EcoVadis is the global standard for business sustainability ratings. The EcoVadis assessment evaluates 21
sustainability criteria across four core themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and
Sustainable Procurement.

“We know that our customers are looking for partners that share an interest in taking care of people,
the planet and demonstrating corporate responsibility and we are proud to be making meaningful
strides in those areas,” said Patrick Sullivan, Global Director of Sustainability at Encore. “EcoVadis is a
globally recognized benchmark of performance related to a company’s sustainability practices and to be
recognized with a bronze badge shows our commitment. We are genuinely encouraged by the
acknowledgement from EcoVadis to recognize our global efforts on our sustainable and social impact

Encores areas of success include outstanding policies in all four core themes (environment, labor and
human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement), demonstrated results to promote diversity and
inclusion to prevent discrimination, actions to support employee health and safety and career
development, and measures to monitor and reduce consumption and emissions.

EcoVadis’ business sustainability ratings are based on international sustainability standards such as the
Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the ISO 26000 standard. The ratings provide an
evidenced-based analysis on performance and an actionable roadmap for continuous improvement.
