reduce costs and increase efficiencies.

 

With Whom Are They Sharing?

Procurement teams at over 450 multinationals use EcoVadis ratings to make purchasing decisions everyday.

Atlinks is principally engaged in home and office telecommunication product designing. Their customers include large consumers retail chain stores, telecom operators and distributors mainly located in Europe and Latin America.

Back in 2012, one first-tier telecom operator customer requested us to fill in the questionnaire as a supplier and then a second one. We soon saw the benefits of joining the EcoVadis program. It is a very well-known platform for CSR evaluation and other customers were also asking to see our assessment. Plus the fact that we got good results encouraged us to communicate this more widely to our customers.
Sustainability assessments are now part of our management system and are planned at the end of the yearly cycle of activities, programs, training, audits, awareness and reviews. This has also proved very useful for our IPO because the Hong Kong Exchange market is very demanding when it comes to sustainability. We had a number of initiatives in place before but EcoVadis helped us structure them and create value for our customers.

Firmenich SA is a private Swiss company in the fragrance and flavor business. It is the largest privately owned company in the field and ranks number two worldwide. Firmenich has created perfumes for over 100 years and produced a number of well-known scents.

EcoVadis has become a strategic tool for us and a way to structure what we do. And also a way to engage our teams. From a business point of view, a lot of our clients who know EcoVadis ask for EcoVadis Rating. It certainly helps create a common ground with our clients as well. I think we are looking forward in the future to do the same with our suppliers and to create this very interesting positive chain, from brands all the way down to farmers or suppliers in our other fields.

Bérangère Magarinos-Ruchat Global Head of Sustainability

EA is a 100% employee-owned public benefit corporation that provides environmental, compliance, natural resources, and infrastructure engineering and management solutions to a wide range of public and private sector clients.

It was in great interest to us as an organization to have EcoVadis come in and look at exactly what we are doing to give us some opportunities to learn what we can improve upon, as well as what we are doing well and maybe create opportunities to enhance those aspects of our program.

It operates in more than 30 European countries and over 95% of trucks are manufactured in their European factories in Sweden, France and Italy.

The internal benefit of working with EcoVadis for Toyota Material Handling Europe is that it enables us to identify best practices and leaders within our organization. We can then document those best practices and share them across our organization, so that all our sustainability champions across Europe can have the inspiration to drive the same good practices at their local level.

Belron International Ltd. is the world’s leading provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement (VGRR) services. The company operates a network of thousands of glass replacement service centers, backed by a mobile repair fleet.

For me, as a CSR director, it is very important to have this kind of tool to engage people in the strategy. We send the score to the partners that ask us to be evaluated by EcoVadis, and we also give this score to the other partners who have not asked us to be evaluated. This gives us an external approval, external approach of what we do, and this is something very important.

Céline Coulibre-Duménil CSR & Corporate Communication Officer

We adopted the EcoVadis platform because it was one of the longest established assessment platforms with a good robust approach to assessing and reviewing performance in the sustainability area. Also, we had one of our key clients who was requiring us to complete it as a supplier, and this basically gave us a really good synergy to adopt a program, which not only was satisfying our clients, but which also was helping us internally to drive sustainable thinking and embedding a sustainable approach to business within each of our organizations. The thing that we really like about the EcoVadis platform is a template which each of our businesses can adopt and can use to help them for their own purposes, for their own priorities within their particular country, within their particular market and it gives them their own local ownership.

Justin Bazalgette Head of CSR Measurement & Environmental Efficiency

Since 1986, Comptel Corporation has grown to become a global leader of digital and communication services in two main areas – Intelligent Data and Service Orchestration. Operating with an international team of more than 750
professionals serving nearly 300 service providers across 90 countries.

It was really hard to answer some of the questionnaires from other clients whose questions were focused on environmental aspects related to the product
manufacturing and recycling. The EcoVadis questionnaire was not asking those questions that were not relevant, and I was glad to see it was more focused
on software companies like us.

Bain & Company is a global consultancy that helps the world’s most ambitious change-makers define the future. Since their founding in 1973, they have grown to over 58 offices in 37 countries.

We've done the assessment eight times, and we initially started it because of a client request. The EcoVadis assessment is a useful tool to guide us in our sustainability journey. We found the questionnaire really self-explanatory

CAFIVER is a privately owned Mexican company with over 30 years experience in coffee processing and domestic & international coffee trade.

The complexity with working with small producers in this field is that coffee business is a family business, and as such it might involve child labor. We work to make them understand that children need to be involved in others activities such as school.
