Geodis Responsible Purchasing with EcoVadis

Geodis Responsible Purchasing Program has introduced a purchasing approach to bring in responsible partners. In 2011, further progress was made in systematically integrating ethical, environmental and social criteria in specifications, analysis grids and standard contracts. At the same time we have joined EcoVadis, a collaborative platform specialised in evaluating the environmental and social performance of suppliers. Following a pilot phase involving a panel of sub-contractors and suppliers, the purchasing division will use this tool to select new suppliers and assess existing ones. In 2012, the platform will be gradually made available to the divisions.
