What is an Industry Initiative? EcoVadis Support (RIB) January 05, 2018 13:46 Updated A Sector Initiative represents a group of companies in a common business sector, sharing tools to assess and improve sustainability sourcing practices within their global supply chains to meet their CSR objectives. Following that objective, these companies have joined forces to share their suppliers' audit and assessment results in one platform. If you have received a CSR evaluation request on behalf of a Sector Initiative, it is because you are a supplier to at least one member of this initiative. Accepting the request will increase your visibility to additional companies in your sector and avoid duplicative efforts by sharing one evaluation with multiple clients or potential clients. Each Sector Initiative has different sharing rules: All-or-none By accepting your client request, the results of your assessment will be shared with all current and future members of the Sector Initiative. Concerned Sector Initiatives: -AIM-PROGRESS Initiative -TfS (Together for Sustainability) -Railsponsible -Responsible Beauty Initiative Selective When answering your client request, you can select the members within the Sector Initiative with whom you want to share the results of your assessment. Unselected members will only see your default information (name, country, category).
