EcoVadis is an independent and objective assessment platform that aims to improve the environmental and social responsibility practices of companies..
EcoVadis is active in 110 countries and covers 150 different business areas.
The diagnostic provided by EcoVadis takes into account the specificities of each sector. Each assessment specifies the paths to follow to improve the score achieved.
The EcoVadis methodology focusses on four themes: the environment, social practices, ethics and purchasing. For the energy sector, environment and social practices each count for 36% of the total score, while purchasing counts for 18% and ethics for 9%.
The score for each theme is based on the policies (25%), actions (35%) and results (40%).
