Measuring Supplier Sustainability 

July 8, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


In 2018 the University of California adopted a policy to include sustainability as part of their RFP selection process. For solicitations over $100,000 a minimum of 15 percent of the selection criteria must be allotted to sustainability (for both goods and services). Concurrently UC is partnering with a third party to help evaluate supplier performance in the area of sustainability. EcoVadis is an international leader in this space, offering a robust system for assessing suppliers on their corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices. A scorecard measures their performance in four categories: environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. This allows agencies to compare performance in a specific commodity area and help suppliers make improvements where needed.
