EcoVadis medals recognize companies that have completed the EcoVadis assessment process and demonstrated a relatively strong management system that addresses sustainability criteria, as outlined in the EcoVadis methodology. Companies must also meet specific licensing and eligibility criteria. Jump to the EcoVadis Medals Eligibility Criteria.
What Does An EcoVadis Medal Mean?
The EcoVadis medal is a acknowledgement of achievement RELATIVE to other assessed companies across the EcoVadis database.
An earned medal does not mean a company has no room for improvement or any potential weaknesses in their sustainability practices. It serves as an indicator of positive intent as assessed companies strive to improve their sustainability management performance and drive impact.
An EcoVadis Medal is NOT an endorsement of a company, its products or services, and it does not indicate that the company’s products are specifically sustainable or more sustainable than another company’s products. Please keep this in mind if you plan to comment on a company’s medal status.
The EcoVadis medal or logo should not be placed on any product or used by an entity (eg: subsidiary) that has not been assessed.
