How do I interprete the scoring scale? Saskia Ries July 01, 2019 07:55 Updated The scoring scale includes five CSR performance levels: - Outstanding (score 85-100);- Advanced (score 65-84);- Moderate (score 45-64);- Partial (score 25-44);- Insufficient (score 0-24).Each of the levels can be associated with an opportunity or a risk for both assessed trading partner and requesting company.For instance, a score of >85 points (Outstanding) indicates a very high level of CSR maturity including:- a structured and proactive CSR approach;- policies and tangible actions on all topics;- advanced CSR reporting on actions and KPIs; - innovative practices and external recognition. The advanced CSR maturity of your trading partner bares rich opportunities for collaboration on product/service innovation, market differentiation and value creation beneficial to all parties. On the other hand, a score of <25 points (Insufficient) reveals potential risks for business partners. A poor score can reveal e.g.: - a lack of CSR engagements and absence of measurable actions; - evidence of cases of misconduct (e.g. pollution, corruption). The impact on business partners can be severe including failure to comply with regulations, negative brand reputation, supply disruption, etc. Related articles How are the EcoVadis medals (CSR recognition levels) assigned?
