All over the world, organizations have massively mobilized to support people in need during the COVID-19 crisis. States, NGOs and big and small companies as well as individuals have deployed dedicated actions according to their capacities, in an amazingly short time.
EcoVadis joined the efforts, with 8 offices launching local fundraising events, calling for employees' participation, with EcoVadis matching every contribution made by its employees.
In total, more than 13K€ was raised to support local organizations acting on the field:
A food caterer delivering meal boxes to hospitals in France
An NGO providing mask to elderlies in Hong Kong
The Food Bank in Poland
The Red Cross in Tunisia distributing meal boxes and hand sanitizers to people in need
Two NGOs in Mauritius distributing reusable face masks and food packs to families in need
The Hand up for Kids initiative in Toronto to help provide healthy meals to low income households with children and vulnerable youths in need
Emergency food delivery to elderly and homebound New Yorkers in isolation
The Food Bank in Spain
The Single Mother Forum, an Organization that has been helping single parents through the distribution of food packs during this COVID-19 crisis
The sense of community and solidarity is probably the most beautiful take away we will remember from this crisis. EcoVadis is determined to continue its actions toward communities, including philanthropy & volunteering.
Maelys Debatisse, our Strategic Account Manager in Paris: “We were extremely proud to support the efforts of Tout Simplement, our partner for food catering, in delivering 230 meals boxes to French Hospitals and the well-known NGO Les Restos du Coeur.”

Crystal Cheng, our CSR Analyst in Hong Kong: “ We would like to thank our employees for their efforts, allowing the Neighbourhood Advice Action Council (NAAC) to purchase 2,850 masks & 20 gift packs for households in need. Not only did our employees make donations, they also volunteered at the NAAC service centre in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong, delivering some fresh food to the households.”
Hannah Roberts, our CSR Analyst in New York: “In an amazing team effort, we raised $1,000 in the first 24 hours of our campaign for NYC seniors! Thanks to EcoVadis’ contribution, we were able to donate more than $3,000 or 550 meals to City Meals on Wheels.”
Maria Radwaska, our Office Manager in Poland: “In Poland, we are amazed by the impact that a few people can generate. Our fundraising allowed us to finance a month's worth of food for 460 people with Banki Żywności, the local food bank!”
