The EcoVadis overall score (0-100) reflects the quality of the company's sustainability management system at the time of the assessment.
The EcoVadis sustainability recognition levels are based upon the percentile ranking of your company's EcoVadis score, and a minimum theme score*. The medals’ criteria are reviewed annually.
The criteria for scorecards published in 2020 are as follows:
Platinum - top 1% (overall score between 73 and 100)
Gold - top 5% (overall score between 66 and 72)
Silver - top 25% (overall score between 54 and 65)
Bronze - top 50% (overall score between 45 and 53)
The criteria for scorecards published in 2019 are as follows:
Gold - top 5% (overall score between 62 and 100)
Silver - top 30% (overall score between 46 and 61)
Bronze - top 65% (overall score between 37 and 45)
*No medal is assigned for overall scores below 45, or if there is a low theme score (≤20) in any of the four themes (Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement).
*Percentile rank is calculated across all companies in all industries, not per industry.

- The scorecard includes no severe negative 360° Watch Findings for Environment, Labor & Human Rights and Sustainable Procurement occurring in the past three years;
