For purchasing organizations, sustainability standards and ratings are becoming increasingly important in the supply chain. More and more DB customers are requesting this information and setting it as a prerequisite for awarding contracts.
EcoVadis operates a collaborative platform that provides supplier sustainability ratings for global supply chains. It is used by buyers and suppliers from around 160 countries. EcoVadis' goal with the platform is to promote the environmental and social practices of companies within the supply chain. To this end, EcoVadis prepares so-called supplier scores in the area of sustainability for third parties. The DB Group is also regularly assessed.
