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 focus on 21 issues which are grouped into 4 themes (i.e. environment, labor practices & human rights, fair business practices, sustainable procurement). The 21 issues or criteria are based upon international CSR standards such as the Global Compact Principles, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard, the ISO 26000 standard, and the CERES principles.
The assessment of your company's CSR practices is performed by our team of Sustainable Development experts. Our analysts will take into account your answers to the questionnaire, but more importantly the documents you attach. The goal of the analysis is to assess the elements of your company CSR management system.

Please note, that only the criteria that are relevant to your sector specific challenges are taken into account in the assessment.
