3.1.11 Where does EcoVadis extract the information used in the 360 Watch? EcoVadis Support Team December 14, 2017 15:52 Updated The 360° Watch is a complementary screening conducted by our internal research team that covers the input from a range of external stakeholders. The aim is to collect information and opinions (whether positive or negative) on a company’s approach to social, environmental and ethical performance management. If a case is significant enough (for example if it includes a fine, sanction or widespread condemnation) it will have a negative impact on the score for each theme. EcoVadis takes into account information and data from more than 2500 sources spread over media, governments, trade unions, NGOs, and other business networks. Please note that we do not credit press releases coming from the companies we assess, as we consider this information to be coming from a biased source. However, if there are press releases available from an external stakeholder's website, we will include them in our assessment.
