Our Vision

EcoVadis sees immense power in leveraging responsible business to make a better world, and where each of us can make a positive impact.

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, are enriching their communities and growing ethically.

 

Our Mission

To help our customers to make meaningful and lasting improvements in their global footprint. We aim to:

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. Read more about What we do here.
