EcoVadis scorecards make it easier for customers as well as investors and other stakeholders to assess the performance of their suppliers and third-party suppliers and to track their continuous environmental, social and ethical improvements.
The EcoVadis Methodology
EcoVadis is a sustainability assessment platform. The methodology is based on international CSR standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000 and takes into account 198 purchasing categories and 155 countries.
The EcoVadis scoring model is based on 21 criteria from the four subject areas of environment, social affairs, ethics and sustainable procurement. Suppliers demonstrate the extent to which they meet these criteria in whole or in part and are evaluated on this basis. Once a year EcoVadis then produces a company-specific sustainability ranking, which is accompanied by a scorecard. As of this year, the scorecard has four instead of three evaluation categories, ranging from bronze to silver and gold to platinum.
