EcoVadis provides companies around the world with a platform for sustainability management. The aim is to manage the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) performance and communicate it to business partners. In particular, it enables global companies to oversee the sustainability of their supply chains more easily and optimize procurement.
Since its founding in 2007, the platform has already evaluated more than 90,000 companies in terms of their sustainability management. Registered companies submit information on four topics (environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement), which are then evaluated by CSR analysts. This provides a clear picture of the practices with regard to the social responsibility of the respective company. The assessment is based on twenty-one CSR criteria that draw on international CSR standards such as the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), ISO standard 26000, the CERES principles, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
The result of the assessment is published as a scorecard with scores from zero to one hundred (0-100) and in the form of medals (bronze, silver and gold) on the EcoVadis platform and remains valid until the next assessment. In addition, the scorecards highlight the strengths and weaknesses in the companies and can thus be used to target sustainability measures more effectively and improve CSR performance.
proderm has been registered with EcoVadis since 2014 and this year again received an above-average rating. For this, proderm received the silver medal from EcoVadis. The proderm scorecard can be viewed on the EcoVadis platform by users registered there. If you have any questions about our sustainability activities, please contact Dr. Dorothea Wilhelm.
