The DJSI (Dow Jones Sustainability Index) updates the survey and methodology of their rating system, including the supply chain section, on a yearly basis. The DJSI questionnaire supply chain indices serve as benchmarks for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their portfolios, and provide an effective engagement platform for companies who want to adopt sustainable best practices.
Four of the DJSI 2015 annual Industry Group Leaders are EcoVadis clients: Alcatel-Lucent, Akzo Nobel, Air France, and Telenet Group Holdings (subsidiary of LibertyGlobal).
Users of the EcoVadis platform have access to a great set of data on CSR performance of suppliers across all of these themes covered in the methodology: Environment, Labour/Human Rights, Fair Business Practices and Supply Chain; the DJSI questionnaire supply chain section covers similar topics.
This focused DJSI questionnaire supply chain guidance is designed to help CSR and sustainable procurement teams to respond to the Supply Chain Management portion (sections 1.5 and 3.2) of the DJSI assessment.
