EcoVadis rates Unite among top 12%
In February 2021, we were certified by EcoVadis for our Corporate Social Responsibility activities. We increased our total score to 52 points, which puts us among the top 12% in our industry.
We’re happy to receive this recognition of our CSR activities. Nonetheless, the report also shows the need for further improvements. We’re guided not only by external factors, but CSR at Unite, like so many other issues, is first and foremost intrinsically motivated.
What is EcoVadis?
EcoVadis is a worldwide provider of sustainability ratings and intelligent, collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. EcoVadis’ sustainability scorecards provide detailed insights into environmental, social and ethical risks across 198 purchasing categories and 155 countries. Over 35,000 companies use EcoVadis to reduce risk, promote innovation and create trust and transparency between business partners. You can learn about their efforts on the EcoVadis website.
How does it benefit our customers?
Buyers have long stopped buying or negotiating based on price alone. The true cost to business continuity is wrapped up in vulnerable global supply chains that extend beyond monetary value.
As a result, many companies today demand transparency beyond tier-one suppliers and aim to deliver on their sustainability and CSR efforts. The EcoVadis certification helps Unite customers meet their sustainable procurement requirements and offers the reassurance of their supply chain through a recognised label.
Managed Supply at Unite
For us, trust and quality form the basis of every long-term business relationship. We place equally high demands on ourselves, our partners and suppliers.
Managed Supply refers to the careful selection process that we apply to our Spotmarket suppliers, ensuring that our customers get the best variety of products and optimal shopping experience. We work exclusively with B2B verified and quality-assured suppliers.
