A Practical Guide on How to Make the Most of EcoVadis Services in Your Due Diligence Efforts
EcoVadis business sustainability ratings provide a wealth of information to support GRI reporting on responsible supply chain management, delivering quantitative and qualitative results, as well as helping clients formulate their management approaches for sustainable procurement. Now, more than ever, the focus on sustainable supply chain management is vital, and so is the need for increased transparency around supplier operations and corporate social responsibility performance.
This practical guide provides guidance on how to answer general reporting disclosures using the EcoVadis Rating, and outlines how you can obtain additional details suggested in the recommendations and guidance from the GRI Standards to provide a better overview of material impacts and topics.
As explained by Sabine Content, GRI Director of Corporate and Stakeholder Engagement:
“The GRI Standards enable companies to understand and communicate their impacts on society, the environment and the economy, demonstrating accountability to all stakeholders. The Leveraging Sustainability Ratings to Support GRI Reporting publication offers insights on the value of reporting that is based on the GRI Standards, including recognition of the importance of transparency throughout the value chain.”
