The EcoVadis Rating provides a company sustainability rating service offered through a global software platform. Its rating covers a wide range of non-financial management systems including environmental impact, labour practices and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement, with each company assessed on the material respects relevant to its size, location and the sector in which it operates.
To encourage supply chain sustainability, large multinational corporations partner with EcoVadis, tapping into supplier leverage, to move their business partners and suppliers beyond mere compliance.
Assessed companies can see how their score compares to others in their sector. Combining the results of the performance report with the areas for improvement triggers a "race to the top", in which entire sectors compete for overall best practice.
Scoring is distributed as follows:
- Overall score: 70/100
- Environment: 80/100
- Labour practices and human rights: 70/100
- Ethics: 70/100
- Sustainable procurement: 30/100
The recent assessment marks a starting point for continuous improvement in sustainability.
