EcoVadis is a platform that enables companies to monitor the sustainability performance of their suppliers. The objective of the EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating methodology is to assess the quality of a company’s CSR management system through its policies, implementation measures and results. The assessment focuses on the environment, labor practices and human rights, fair business practices and sustainable procurement.
These criteria are based on international CSR standards such as the UN Global Compact Principles; the International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions; the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard; the ISO 26000 standard; the Coalition for Environmentally Responsible Economies (CERES) principles; and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights.
