In the current global environment, businesses are evaluated by their sustainability progress as much as their financial performance. Many companies, however, don’t have the resources or the knowledge to develop their sustainability expertise or assess how well they are performing.
EcoVadis is the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. EcoVadis’ sustainability scorecards provide detailed insight into environmental, social, ethical and supply chain risks across 198 purchasing categories and 155 countries. Industry leaders such as Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, L’Oréal, Subway, Nestlé, Salesforce, Michelin and BASF are among the more than 55,000 businesses on the EcoVadis network, working to assess, collaborate and improve sustainability performance in order to protect their brands, foster transparency and innovation, and accelerate growth.

1. My client has requested an EcoVadis assessment! Why and what should I do now?
Major international companies have added a set of sustainability requirements to their supply chain criteria, including the EcoVadis rating. The goal of these international companies is to incorporate the sustainability vision of the international entity throughout their supply chain. As a result, suppliers are required to incorporate changes to their internal and external processes to become more sustainable and in doing so, remain a supplier and maintain competitiveness within their industry. To identify how you could achieve or improve your EcoVadis rating in a reasonable amount of time, Nexio Projects recommends our Questionnaire Response Guidance. This service will provide you with the assistance that you need to navigate the EcoVadis process and ensure that you meet your client’s requirements.
