EcoVadis and its assessments, a seal of approval of a commitment to a CSR approach
EcoVadis, which was founded in Paris in 2007, is a French SME that is committed to developing responsible purchasing solutions. It offers its expert services in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that it has acquired through its simple and reliable assessment forms, covering 150 purchasing categories and 21 CSR indicators. This key element of a “Responsible Purchasing” policy reduces risks and improves the performance of the suppliers. Within this context, EcoVadis has therefore developed a reliable, comprehensive and user-friendly “Supplier CSR rating” solution that helps businesses manage their risks and encourages eco-innovations.
The assessment is the first stage of the continuous improvement process proposed by EcoVadis. The objective of the assessment is to obtain an accurate representation of the business practices in the field of CSR – in the following areas: environment, citizenship, ethics, responsible purchasing. The results of the assessment are therefore used not only to understand the company’s stance in these areas, but also to communicate the level of its CSR commitment to its partners. The EcoVadis assessment is a real benefit for companies with multinational client that are increasingly attentive to the environmental and social performance of their suppliers.
