EcoVadis is committed to creating a reliable CSR rating system that is consistent over time and offers comparability so that suppliers can be benchmarked across the wide variety of sectors and countries.
EcoVadis has developed a quality management system (QMS) which is certified ISO 9001. We actively pursue ever-improving quality through a process management system that enables each employee to do their job right the first time and every time in a safe and stimulating work environment. It is supported by our tailor made and self-developed IT platform which guides employees through the whole process. We constantly put our efforts into continuously improving the processes by being advised by specialized bodies like our methodology committee.
EcoVadis is committed to provide the highest level of Information Security and to continuously improve in order to protect all stakeholders’ data in an evolving landscape of information security threats. For this reason, EcoVadis has established an Information Security management system (ISMS) which is certified ISO27001 and which enables us to systematically operate and maintain information security in our business processes and services and to determine and apply the necessary security measures based on our risk evaluation.
The ISMS and QMS build an integrated management system allowing us to ensure the availability, integrity, confidentiality and traceability of information.
EcoVadis believes that the GDPR is an important step to strengthen and harmonize data protection of EU citizens’ personal data. As a data controller Ecovadis is committed to comply with regulations and to put in place the best practices.
Ecovadis uses the ISO 27001 standard, for which we are certified, as a framework and integrates personal data protection aspects in its management system. We use the ISO 27701 framework to meet GDPR requirements. Our data protection practices and compliance are confirmed by a third party audit.
For the data processing performed outside of the EU, we have in place Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) with our subsidiaries.
We always carefully select our providers (processors) and we require the conclusion of Data Protection Agreements with processors and Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) or Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) in case of processing outside of the EEA region to be able to work for us. We always aim to choose subscriptions with providers to have data hosted on servers based in Europe. We use the following major processors:

We are awaiting recommendations on additional measures to be issued by the French Data protection authority CNIL concerning the possibilities of transferring data to the United States based on SCCs (or BCR). Depending on their opinion, we will take further action.
