EcoVadis has developed a variety of materials helping to foster comprehension and adoption of continuous improvement based on your current scorecard results.
Information and guidance
On your scorecard, click the tooltip icon (when available) to view specific information and guidance for strengths and improvement areas, including downloadable how-to guides.
Each information and guidance box is customized to the theme, management indicator and the criteria that the strength or the improvement area refers to.
Information and guidance boxes also store downloadable EcoVadis how-to guides, which are a series of short and practical e-books providing you with further guidance on specific sustainability topics. Each guide is designed to address a particular improvement area on the scorecard, explaining the importance of the subject and the management indicator (e.g., policies, actions, reporting on results). There are also concrete examples and best practices for you to develop your own policies, actions and reporting results for particular sustainability topics.
There is a total of seventeen (17) how-to guides, covering more than 180 strengths and improvement areas and approximately fifty percent (50%) of all improvement areas activated on the scorecard.
All of the how-to guides are available in the Sustainability Guidance tab on the Useful Resources page:
