RATER PROFILE

EcoVadis Rating

BACKGROUND


Founded in 2007, EcoVadis provides evidence-based sustainability assessments for companies within global supply chains, rating each business across 21 important environmental, social and ethical performance criteria. EcoVadis’ rating focuses on issues material to a specific sector, geography and size, all taken into account in the rating, and are measurable. The solution is global, supporting over 10 languages. 

The EcoVadis solution is built with Procurement and Supply-Chain professionals in mind,  delivering end-to-end program management support to engage, on-board, collect and analyze documented evidence, and manage suppliers throughout the assessment process. EcoVadis ratings are used by procurement personnel in over 300 of the largest global multinational companies.  

Over 50,000 suppliers have been rated across 120 countries on the EcoVadis network, with thousands more joining each month. Over 70% of the companies rated are small- or medium-sized (and often non-listed) businesses.

The independent assessor found that EcoVadis achieved the highest score on the SPLC Supplier Ratings Framework assessment, with solid organizational structure, transparent rating methodologies, scalability, good company engagement and consistent performance.
