Ethical, environmental, labor and human rights risks are critical issues for trading partners of all sizes, industries and locations. As a result, large purchasing organizations are implementing sustainable procurement to realize these key benefits: reduce risk of supply chain disruption, protect company reputation and brands, lower costs through collaborative actions, facilitate access to capital and increase valuation, and provide a market advantage when consumers demand a sustainable and responsible supply chain.
However, few organizations have the internal CSR expertise to realize these benefits at the scale they require to meet the ever evolving demands of customers, stakeholders and regulators. Thus, organizations around the world are turning to EcoVadis as the global standard sustainability management platform for trading partners to be rated and monitored on their CSR performance, while driving continuous improvement.
You have received an assessment request because your trading partner wants to understand your CSR practices and integrate these factors into their business processes. All businesses have inherent CSR risks and the EcoVadis Rating provides the requesting company/organization with a trusted assessment of your company's CSR performance, while providing your business with an opportunity to show leadership within your industry, alignment with global best practices and the implementation of CSR management systems that go beyond compliance.
