Easy for Buyers, Better for Suppliers

Solving a complex problem:

Stop the ‘survey madness’!

Suppliers & third parties are understandably frustrated by self-assessments and questionnaire: Some receive 25+ questionnaires from customers every year. They want one assessment, relevant to their business (and in their language), with clear results and feedback, that they can share everywhere.

Buyers and Risk/EHS/CSR/compliance managers need actionable indicators, not a pile of spreadsheet data. The EcoVadis CSR rating methodology has been honed over 10 years of R&D and adapted to 190 categories & 150 countries. This powers a team of 150+ expert CSR analysts to produce reliable ratings to guide decisions and drive performance.
