UPDATE FOR October 25, 2021: Currently, EcoVadis assessments are taking between eight (8) to eleven (11) weeks to deliver.
Dear EcoVadis user,
Thank you for your continued use of the EcoVadis solution and for your collaboration in helping companies to improve on and implement their sustainability strategies.
Initially, as the world responded to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we observed a slowdown in customers inviting trading partners to be assessed, as well as a reduction in the numbers of companies completing their assessments in a timely manner. Since the beginning of 2021, more and more businesses have resumed operations at a normal level.
As a result, companies are continuing the strong deployment of their sustainability programs. However, this business resumption has created a temporary challenge in managing the surge in demand, resulting in longer waiting times for EcoVadis Scorecards to be delivered to you and your trading partners.
- Currently, 48% of EcoVadis Ratings are delivered in less than eight (8) weeks (prior to COVID, the rate was 95+%).
- The average time to deliver a rating is eleven (11) weeks.
While we are confident that this increase in demand underlines that the role of sustainability is becoming increasingly urgent, we thank you in advance for understanding that your assessment might take longer than anticipated to process.
Companies that are applying for requests for proposals are automatically assessed in a higher priority. If you are applying for a request for a proposal and still waiting for your results, please contact us.
To keep you informed, we will be updating this article weekly to provide you with the most current status of any delays in receiving your EcoVadis Scorecard. You may wish to bookmark this page temporarily for easier access.
We remain available for any questions or comments, and thank you again for your continued use of the EcoVadis solution.
The EcoVadis Team.
