Easier for buyers, better for suppliers

Solving a complex problem:

Stop the ‘survey madness’ !

Suppliers & third parties are understandably frustrated by self-assessments and data collection: Some receive 25+ surveys from customers every year. They want one assessment, relevant to their business (& 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 150 categories & 120 countries. This powers a team of 150+ expert CSR analysts to produce reliable ratings to guide decisions and drive performance.
