EcoVadis’ mission is to elevate the performance of global supply chains with respect to sustainability. They’re the largest providers of sustainability ratings. This includes aspects of environment, labor and human rights, ethics and procurement practices of all of the businesses they assess. They have a partnership with the UN Global Impact to help clients make sure their corporate Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are aligned with the right opportunities.
