How to interpret your score?

Start with the first box on top-left of the page. You will see the four CSR themes scores :

  • Each theme will be scored on a 0 - 100 scale.
  • The total score is calculated as the weighted average of these scores.
  • Each theme weight can be seen by hovering over the score; weights are defined depending on your industry profile.

Here is how to get a sense of how good is your score:

  • The average score is around 41. Note that over 70% of suppliers improve their score when re-assessed.
  • EcoVadis provides a scoring scale that defines five score ranges with qualitative measures of what each range means. Login to your platform and check out the legend on the left menu: clicking on the question mark next to “CSR performance”, you get a detailed description of the scoring scale: how mature and structured our experts consider your current practices.
