What type of supporting documents can I provide? EcoVadis Support (BOA) January 16, 2018 06:49 Updated In order to rate your CSR performance, our analysts need evidence to support your answers. You can upload any type of document that reflects your company’s commitment to CSR: - Written policies, reports, action plans, certificates, etc.- In one of these formats: .docx, .doc, .xls, .xlsx, .pdf, .wmv, .odt, .ott, .sxw, .stw, .ods, .odp, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .gif, .bmp, .txt, .html (all files must be less than 30MB) Please note that for your document to be taken into account by our analyst team, you need to make sure its content is coded as text and not as an image, so that content analysis can be performed, as well as automatic translation when needed. To verify if your document is in a right format, you should be able to select text inside the document and copy/paste this text into a Word document. Ensure that all documents provided are timely i.e. reviewed on a regular basis. Note that there is a validity period of 8 years applied both to policies and actions (i.e. policies and actions over 8 years old will not be valued). KPI reporting on the other hand can only be considered in the assessment if it is less than 2 years old. Please note that once uploaded, the same supporting document can be linked to as many answers as you need. A limitation is set to 55 new documents for each assessment survey. Here are some examples of documents that can be provided (for illustration only):• ISO 14001 Certificate• Eco-label certification• CSR report• Annual Report• QHSE Charter• WEEE Registration• REACH Registration• Internal Safety inspection report• Business code of conduct• Environmental impact assessment• Health & Safety plan• Sustainable Procurement Strategy Please note that: All supporting documentation provided must be existing documentation, documents that are created specifically for the evaluation will not be credited. Uploading the file type "Adobe Acrobat Document" can cause uploading issues. If you are having trouble uploading an "Adobe Acrobat Document" file type, please save the document as a .pdf to upload.
