    AVID’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is best reflected by being awarded EcoVadis “Gold Medal” status, an extraordinarily difficult feat given the stringent CSR based assessment process.  We are extremely proud of this accolade as we truly believe there is no higher accolade that could better reflect AVID’s commitment, or any company’s commitment, to Corporate Social Responsibility. 

    EcoVadis (www.ecovadis.com) was launched to address the needs of Procurement Executives who were looking for reliable Sustainability indicators on their suppliers. EcoVadis operates the 1st web-based collaborative platform, allowing companies to assess the environmental and social performance of their global suppliers.  These evidence-based assessments are refined into easy to read scorecards, providing zero to one hundred (0-100) scores, and medals (bronze, silver, gold), when applicable.

    To drive global supply chain sustainability, large multinational corporations partner with EcoVadis, leveraging the influence of spend as a "force for good" to push trading partners beyond compliance. The rated company can see how their score compares to the benchmark in their industry. Combining the scorecard results with improvement areas results in a "race to the top," in which whole industries compete to achieve global best practice.

    Through the Enterprise subscription and associated services, EcoVadis provides an outsourced sustainability management platform that helps large organizations to: invite their trading partners to be rated; manage trading partners' performance; drive continuous improvement.

    EcoVadis Customer Social Responsibility (CSR) Rating Methodology Overview:

    The objective of the EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating methodology is to assess the quality of a company’s CSR management system – through its policies, implementation measures and results.  The assessment focuses on 21 issues which are grouped into the following 4 main themes:

                    1. Environment

                    2. Labor & Human Rights

                    3. Ethics

                    4. Sustainable Procurement

    Rankings:

    EcoVadis has assessed over 75,000+ companies to date with their industry-leading questionnaire, analysis and scoring system.  After thoroughly assessing a company, EcoVadis awards the company a medal based on their overall CSR performance score:

    • Gold Medal = Top 5% (overall score between 62 and 100)
    • Silver Medal = Top 30% (overall score between 46 and 61)
    • Bronze Medal = Top 65% (overall score between 37 and 45)

    Among this entire group of companies assessed, only 5% achieved “Gold” medal status and AVID is very proud to say we are one of them!
