EcoVadis Medal and Certificate Usage Policy
The EcoVadis recognition medals and certificates are intended for use by EcoVadis Rated Companies that meet specific licensing and eligibility criteria to promote their sustainability performance.
The use of an EcoVadis medal or certificate is reserved for customers who have earned, through the EcoVadis assessment process, a rating/scorecard that explicitly states that the company has earned the medal. Only an unmodified, unaltered EcoVadis medal or certificate may be used. For eligible customers, the EcoVadis score and medal can only be promoted publicly with a Premium, Select, or Corporate subscription. Basic subscribers can share the medal image and news internally, but would need to upgrade their account to share publicly.
No business or other commercial entity shall use an EcoVadis medal, certificate and related materials, or any likeness thereof, without the express consent of EcoVadis as communicated on the EcoVadis platform.
A valid EcoVadis Medal will contain the EcoVadis scorecard year in which the medal was earned.
Please note that companies with significant negative external news and companies in certain industries are not eligible for medals.
