The EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating methodology is to measure the quality of a company’s CSR management system – through its policies, actions and results. The EcoVadis CSR rating methodology is based upon seven founding principles:

    1. Evidence Based
    2. Industry Sector, Country and Size Matter
    3. Diversification of Sources
    4. Technology
    5. Assessment by International CSR Experts
    6. Traceability & Transparency
    7. Excellence through Continuous Improvement

The EcoVadis assessment focuses on 21 issues, which are grouped into 4 themes: Environment (ENV), Labor Practices & Human Rights (LAB), Fair Business Practices (FBP), and Sustainable Procurement (SUP). The issues assessed and their relative weight vary based on the company’s activities, size, and geographic location.
