We envision a world where businesses are measured and rewarded as much by their sustainability as by financial or other measures, have a transparent view of its impact around the globe, and are enriching their communities, growing ethically, without causing any undue harm.
1) Make sustainability performance measurable and benchmarkable
2) Make transparency a scalable and efficient process for both suppliers and buying organizations
3) Facilitate continuous improvement and innovation.
We do this by developing reliable, global and easy to use CSR Ratings that help organizations manage risks and foster Eco-innovations
EcoVadis operates the first collaborative platform providing Supplier Sustainability Ratings for global supply chains. With a focus on maintaining quality and integrity, EcoVadis has managed to also grown quickly to meet this increasing need. Since its founding in 2007, EcoVadis has become a trusted partner for procurement organizations in more than 200 leading multinationals worldwide including Verizon, Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson, Heineken, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Nokia, L’Oréal, Bayer, Alcatel-Lucent, ING Bank, Air France-KLM, Centrica/British Gas, BASF, and Merck.
