The EcoVadis assessment process

The EcoVadis assessment is a structured process that evaluates a company’s sustainability performance in various categories. Here we provide a step-by-step explanation of the assessment process, from data collection to evaluation:

1. Registration and data collection

Companies register with EcoVadis and begin the data collection process. They are asked to provide extensive information covering various aspects of sustainability. Among other things, environmental, social and ethical aspects are requested. This information includes environmental data, labour practices, ethical business practices and other relevant topics. During this data collection, PPP supports you in submitting the right data, as this is essential for a good assessment. Even during data collection, the data input has an impact on the assessment. PPP helps companies to achieve the best possible assessment.

2. Documentation and evidence

Companies need to provide evidence of their sustainability practices to validate the information. This may include the submission of reports, certificates or other documents that support the claims made. PPP will support you in compiling and submitting the correct evidence.

3. EcoVadis reporting

EcoVadis prepares a comprehensive report summarising the assessment results and areas for improvement. This report serves as the basis for the EcoVadis assessment.

4. Assessment in various categories

The assessment is carried out in different categories, including environmental, social, ethical and supplier management. Each category is assessed against specific criteria based on global sustainability standards.

5. score and overall rating

EcoVadis awards points for each category and aggregates them into an overall score. The overall score reflects the company’s sustainability performance.

6. Feedback and opportunities for improvement

EcoVadis provides feedback on the results of the assessment and identifies opportunities for improvement. PPP supports companies with recommendations as early as the data collection and compilation of the evidence. This can lead to the desired or an improved assessment. Companies also receive further recommendations from EcoVadis to strengthen their sustainability practices and achieve a better rating after the assessment. PPP provides support in implementing these recommendations and incorporating them into the company structure.

7. Publication and comparison

Companies have the opportunity to publish their EcoVadis rating to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. The ratings can also be used for comparison with other companies in the same sector.

8. Sustainability management and further development

The EcoVadis assessment serves not only as a snapshot, but also as a basis for long-term sustainability management. Companies can use the results to continuously improve their sustainability strategies.
