26 Commitment vs. Practice Study Methodology Overview: Sample, Analysis and Assumptions This study was conducted by reviewing the most recent scorecard information of almost 27,000 suppliers dated from October 2015 to July 2018 and comparing the results from UNGC participants and non participants. The following points were considered when conducting this study: • To ensure equal comparison, the points awarded to suppliers due to verified endorsement of the UNGC principles were removed; • Our research made the assumption that a subsidiary of a parent company who is a UNGC participant is also a participant; • The scores reviewed were based on EcoVadis assessment methodology, as explained above. Companies are given an overall score as well as scores for each of the four themes: Labor and Human Rights, Environment, Ethics, and |Sustainable Procurement. The theme scores were analyzed individually; • The sample of UN Global Compact participants assessed may not be representative of the actual UN Global Compact participant distribution. 40% 46% S M L 52% 48% Yes No 34% 70% 60 70 52% 48% Yes No 28% 60 50 40.24 46.54 Yes No 87% 50% Yes No 32% 52% S M L 43.41 43.67 41.86 S M L Supplier Size Supplier Risk Proportional Distribution of Suppliers Signatories Non-Signatories Average Score 6% 15% 14% Signatories 2,617 Non-signatories 26,991 Total 29,608 The Number of Suppliers in the EcoVadis Database
